Steve McCool, Corporate Communications Specialist, who has a long-standing relationship with the foundation, and knows a large number of the alumni personally, gave the trainees an introductory talk; this was great timing for us all to meet him. Our day there was then filled with focus groups, one-on-one chats and insight from a vide variety of comms staff, including Victoria, Media Relations, Robbie Sommerville, Associate Director in Corporate Communications and Investor Relations, Rachel Engel, Associate Director, Lindsey Roberts, Executive in Corporate Communications and Investor Relations - and self confessed β€˜Brand Queen’ and Sally Gannon, Graduate Recruitment Executive, EMEA.

Over lunch the we got to have a short Q&A with Steve, then a more informal chat; such a fascinating morning for all.
