Review of the Barrie Spelling Summer School


What better way to find out what it’s all about, than to hear from students who experienced the week’s programme themselves?

Here you can read day by day accounts from two students who attended the summer school week – Owen Lee, a Law graduate from the University of Sussex, on the 2011 summer school, and Ned Poulter, an International Business graduate from Manchester Metropolitan University who attended the year before.

I thoroughly enjoyed every element of the week. The IDM has given me a deeper insight into the marketing industry, allowed me to network with industry professionals which has enabled me to better understand my potential and career preference. I will be recommending the IDM to others. Thank you!
Kirsty Anderson, BA Business, University of Strathclyde

I would definitely recommend the IDM summer school. It allows creative and like-minded people to share experiences and learn together. The friendships, connections and knowledge created in this week developed an underlying ambition into a fully fledged desire to work in this industry.
Daniel Truman, BA (Hons) Marketing Management, Oxford Brookes University
