We strive to ensure that our business focused degrees maintain close ties with their relevant sector. That’s why the Events Management department recently invited Mark Tasker, Managing Director of Fruition – an international events management company – to speak to GSM London students.
Mark gave a lively and interactive presentation that covered his own career, what qualities he looks for in employees, and the current challenges faced when delivering national and international events. His accompanied his talk with videos from Fruition’s corporate exhibitions and conferences, and from large-scale music concerts – many of which can be found on Fruition’s website. (www.frution.co.uk)Mark received an extremely positive reception from the international events students.
Loretta Davison, BSc Events Management said: ‘I found Mark’s presentation very useful and the information on the slides and the videos were very interesting, he made the atmosphere comfortable, relaxing and fun, I definitely will be contacting him for an experience that I can gain as I am eager to learn on the job.’
Liz Larner Principle Lecturer said: ‘Mark has received lots of follow up contact from the students practising their networking skills and has even recommended one student for a prospective role. We’ll be welcoming Mark back for future master classes with our events students.’
