Our pioneering partnership with Edge Hill University celebrated its grand finale last week with a dynamic, fast-paced event. We instigated an energetic conversation around young people, the future and success by utilising the great wisdom of many of our guests. The Edge Hill University students managed the event and welcomed many industry leaders at Agent HQ.
This was the perfect time to reflect on the accomplishments of the group during their 8-week programme. This group of future leaders were brought together in late May. They hadn’t worked together before but quickly formed a solid team.
On the first day they were presented with a client challenge from Edge Hill University. The challenge was ‘How can Edge Hill University communicate effectively with prospective students?’ And so it began, a journey of intense training and development.
We learnt from experts in strategy, creative, digital and communications and then applied this learning to the real-life challenge. The weeks passed by so quickly as we heard from industry expert after industry expert who gave their time, knowledge and encouragement to our promising young people.
Momentum built as the final presentation of our insight got closer and more than ever the team worked hard to analyse the research and draw dynamic recommendations from it. On Tuesday we presented back to representatives from five of Edge Hill University’s departments. Our students were engaging and confident and our clients were impressed. It was a huge success!
We’d like to say a huge thank you – to the teams at Edge Hill University for working together with us on this exciting project, to all the experts that dedicated their time to our group and to the students who showed commitment, passion and hard work throughout, we look forward to watching your fantastic careers unfold! Here are some photographs from the event if you missed it!
