Lynn openly shared internal plans and reports to give students an opportunity to go inside the workings of Venturefest and apply their marketing skills to Oxfordshire’s premier networking platform for high tech entrepreneurs and innovators. They were tasked with producing a strategy to build the brand and attract more visitors to Venturefest’s flagship event, which is happening on 29th June at The King’s Centre in Osney Mead. Bjoern Asmussen (Senior Lecturer in marketing, OBU) selected two of the best assignments from the Department of Marketing Masters class. Top students Ryan Alcock and Serena Wider treated Lynn to two very engaging and innovative presentations characterised by bright ideas and dynamic insights. “I was extremely impressed by both the quality and professionalism of the presentations. Both students demonstrated a good grasp of the challenges facing Venturefest Oxford and were clearly able to apply their learning and experience to the task.” said Lynn “Undoubtedly, ideas generated by this next generation of marketers will be filtering into our marketing activities in the coming year.”
