In my module 'Global Strategic Marketing', I placed 3rd within the class competition. This competition consisted of a weekly VLE 'blog-style' posting, where I had to convincingly create a solution to a marketing problem, as if I was the marketing manager of a business. I learnt many skills in thinking out of the box and presenting my ideas in an articulate fashion to my peers and lecturers.
