26 Business and Events Management Level 3 students (both Year 1 and Year 2) along with three members of staff spent three exciting and informative days at Disneyland Paris for a business conference, ‘Business Live!’.
The conference, held at Disneyland Paris, gave students the chance to hear from some top business influencers, including Claire Dickson from The Walt Disney Company.
Another speaker, Linda Moir (former Head of In-Flight Services, Virgin Atlantic), talked about her experience managing volunteers, using the example of her role of providing the Games Makers for the London 2012 Olympics. Joe McEwan (Head of Digital and Communities, Innocent Drinks) then went on to highlight the vital role that an online presence and social media plays in business development and sustainability.
Students also had the opportunity to explore Disneyland and do some shopping at the Val d’Europe shopping centre. All in all a very successful trip which gave the students a good insight into how businesses in a variety of sectors need to provide excellent customer service to be successful.
The students are now busy planning our study tour for next year, so watch this space!
