Guest Lectures Series brings industry insight to Business School studentsThursday 27 October 2016
Business Management students were given the opportunity to hear first-hand from an expert in the field, as part of the Business School’s Guest Lecture Series 2016/17.
Clive Drinkwater, North West Director of the Department for International Trade, recounted his experience of working in the manufacturing and export industry across the globe.
Having visited 115 countries and lived in Asia for 10 years, Clive has a wealth of knowledge on the sector, and shared insights into how globalisation and development have changed the economic outlook.
Students working towards the Service and Leadership Award are also invited to attend the lectures, and several went along to hear Clive speak.
Heidi Smith, who studies Health & Wellbeing and Psychology, described the Series as a great way to meet industry experts.
She said: “It’s a great opportunity to hear from people actually working in the sector and gain an insight into what’s going on.
“University is the time to take advantage of talks and lectures that can broaden your knowledge and understanding, as you need to draw on everything you’ve experienced when going into the workplace.”
The Guest Lecture Series features a line-up designed to offer something for a broad range of students from across the Business School.
Forthcoming speakers include Stephen Carr from Peel Ports, Helen Ball from Marks and Spencer, Sarah Gray from Santander, and Sandra Nixon from QVC.
