We were approached last year by Kent Business School to see if we had any future project work that their MBA students would be able to assist with. At that time we were considering purchasing some additional plant and machinery and welcomed any external advice on the viability. We therefore put together a basic feasibility study for the students to work on culminating in a consultancy with a group of students at the University.
I was extremely impressed with the thoughts and potential solutions I was given which has assisted us in deciding what future course of action we should take. An additional bonus outcome was feedback on the Company website and on ways it could be improved together with assistance on sourcing the equipment we require from alternative sources!
This was an extremely worthwhile exercise and I hope the students got as much out of it as I did. It’s good to know that Kent is producing some of the best future employees in the country.
