Now in graduate season, London-based event-marketing specialists Live Innovations are offering graduates the chance to transition from education into business.
Live Innovations is an event-marketing company specialising in personalised marketing events which represent their clients’ brands directly to consumers. These individual event-marketing campaigns give Live Innovations the chance to connect with consumers on a face-to-face basis, which often helps to establish long-lasting and personal business relationships between brand and consumer.
Managing Director at Live Innovations Tom Harris is committed to acquiring the top talent to help take the business forward. The entrepreneur and director at Live Innovations recognises that many graduates struggle to make the transition from education into business due to a lack of any ‘on the job’ experience. The event-marketing specialists appreciate the fresh ambition and enthusiasm that graduates can bring to a business, and since their founding Live Innovations have provided graduates with a foot in the door. This has helped them to achieve their career goals and personal ambitions.
At Live Innovations they work with a very diverse group of people, and they don’t pre-judge based on education or experience when it comes to talent scouting. The firm looks for people from all walks of life because they look beyond the CV. Mr Harris strongly believes that as long as people possess a strong work ethic, student mentality, self-motivation and exceptional communication and people skills, they can provide them with all of the necessary skills and knowledge to help people excel.
They are committed to growth, and there are many ways graduates can contribute to the firm’s success. The firm has a unique meritocratic business structure, and because of this, their growth is dependent on their people. They operate an internal business development opportunity, targeted towards ambitious, career-minded individuals looking to accelerate their career growth. Geared towards education and ‘on the job’ training, participants will learn all aspects of the business fundamentals including; basics sales and marketing strategies, motivational and public speaking techniques, micro-management, leadership, brand management and customer care and acquisition.
Live Innovations offers graduates an opportunity where they can expand their knowledge and skill-set and hone their skills in a pressure-free environment. Mr Harris argues that the firm’s development opportunities are unparalleled and the secret to their success.
