Sam’s latest cohort of BA (Hons) Advertising and Brand Management students from Staffordshire University took to the stage yesterday to receive their degree certification and with five students receiving First Class degrees the fizz didn’t stop popping.
It’s always bitter-sweet to say goodbye to the students, but watching them flourish into creative collaborators over their three year study journey warms the heart. Tears, traumas, stress, late night studies (and late-night boozing) is a distant memory as they collect their degrees and enter this crazy world of marketing communications.
Sam has been employed at Brookes & Co as Account Director for four years and we’re avid supporters of her educator role at Staffordshire University. Education is still a luxury and provides an opportunity to make a difference to one’s own life and the world we live in, the degree marks their ability to learn but what’s really important is the lesson to collaborate, to share ideas and to work effectively with others.
Their graduation took place in the beautiful surroundings at Trentham Gardens and the sun shone brightly.
