A night of networking in November!

Our Business Apprentice, Executive PA students and parents spent an evening networking with our Alumni this month.

It was the perfect opportunity for the students to quiz our old Quest students on their experiences here and careers since leaving! 

PA's and BA's were able to ask past students how Quest has helped them since completing their courses and find out first hand how supportive the Quest network can be.

Thank you to the members of our Alumni who attended and we hope that the current students and parents found it an informative evening!

Quest win an Award!

...for our charitable efforts

Quest's chosen charity is Action for A-T.  Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T) is a very complex condition that affects a variety of different systems in the body. 

The charity have recently launched an award badge to recognise companies and individuals who do amazing things for the charitable organisation. 

As Quest have made a significant contribution towards the ongoing research programme over the years, we have been given an Award in Excellence for Philanthropy. 

We are thrilled to have received the award and will continue to support the charity through various fundraising events!

A trip down brand lane...

A trip was organised to the Branding Museum in London Ladbroke Grove for our Professional Diploma Plus students. 

The students discovered how brands have changed over the centuries in line with changing customer needs, trends and technology.  The task for the group was to select a brand and chart it's history and how it has changed over time.

The PD Plus students have selected Heinz Baked Beans, Coca Cola, Lego, Cadbury’s and Opal Fruits and using their knowledge of the branding museum will produce an investigation on how brands change over time within a product life cycle and extension strategies. 

Become an entrepreneur...

On Friday 17th November, our Professional Diploma students went to the Business Start Up Show at Olympia. With hundreds of businesses all under one roof, the show provided the perfect opportunity for the students to develop their business, marketing and networking knowledge. 

For  those who might hope to start their own business one day, there were talks from experienced entrepreneurs on how they launched their company and made a success of it. 

One entrepreneur who has certainly made a success of his start up is Joseph Valente – Winner of BBC Apprentice 2015. The group heard of his journey from a student who didn't enjoy school to entrepreneur extraordinaire! 

 

Festive giving and generosity!

The Grosvenor Professional Diploma group have been collecting donated coats, jackets and hampers to contribute to the Coats for Christmas initiative.

The coats will be passed onto The Passage, a homeless shelter based in Victoria. With it estimated to be one of the coldest winters in Britain in 10 years, we are very proud of the Grosvenor group for collecting donations for such a worthwhile charity!

 

Welcome, Harry!

We would like to welcome Harry Sutton, our new IT Assistant. He will be sorting out any IT issues and ensuring the smooth running of the system.

We are pleased to welcome Harry to Quest team and looking forward to him working with us!
