At ISA, we pride ourselves in the fact that we work closely with industry leaders and professional bodies, which ensures that our ‘offerings’ to the public are of the best standards. One way in which we provide an opportunity for our students to interact with industry experts is through Industry Talks, where we invite an eminent personality to host a session in which they give insights on the Brand and Marketing Communications sector.
On the 25th of November, 2014, ISA hosted its second Industry Talk, which also doubled up as a certificate issuance ceremony for our first group of short course graduates. Our keynote speaker for the day was Lamu Maundu, the Managing Director of BluePrint Marketing East Africa, an Ogilvy Africa Network Agency (you can follow him on twitter). Lamu’s is a success story that is worth listening to; in 10 short years, he has risen from an account executive to a Managing Director. He gave a motivational talk in which he shared his story, as well as some guiding principles that have played a role in his success. You can watch his talk here and read the tweets here.
After the keynote address, the certificate issuance ceremony commenced! The ‘graduands’ were all smiles as they each received their acknowledgement of qualification.
Look out for the next Industry Talk!
