On March 13th 2019, Mountjoy welcomed four University of Southampton students at our Head Office in Portsmouth to pitch a bespoke marketing plan for the business.
The pitch forms part of the University’s Business Innovation Programme, whereby students of varying experience and vocations are grouped together and given 6 weeks to research a real-life business issue put forward by a local business before presenting their findings to key stakeholders. The programme enables students to develop a number of employability skills, such as teamwork, communication and problem solving.
In particular, the students presenting to Mountjoy commented that they had enjoyed the experience; they had been able to meet new people they would not typically interact with, had applied critical thought when assessing online sources for credibility and had gained valuable experience in effective report writing.
We wish them every success for the future.
