Summer School

The final installment of the Vans New Zealand papers (Marketing Communications Strategy) has now been uploaded. Navigate to ‘Marketing Papers’ if you are interested in reading this work.

Summer school kicked off yesterday with an Operational Management paper, Project Management.  This is an intense course, completing a full paper in just three weeks! Is going to be pretty full on with three 7hr sessions and two sizable assessments.

In a couple of weeks I will be starting a second summer school paper, Accounting for Business… A glutton for punishment!

As papers are completed I will upload them right here for your reading pleasure. 🙂 Please feel free to leave me your thoughts and comments.

Have a safe and happy Christmas where ever you may be.

Grad Show 2011

After completing my first semester at Unitec I was very excited but surprised to be invited to the 2011 Grad Show to receive the annual academic prize for excellence in marketing.  Having my work recognised this early in my academic journey is both an honour and an encouraging sign, reassuring me that I am in fact on the right path towards achieving my academic goals.

Guest speaker for the evening was Mitch Olson, co-founder of Small Worlds.  Mitch presented an amusing, but profound insight into his view on life, and how best to balance life’s necessities with living a happy and meaningful life, while achieving the most out of everything that we do.

Thank you to Unitec for hosting a fantastic evening.
