Not strictly SPA Professional Academy, but a student I taught in Kiev at the International Institute of Business was yesterday presented with the award for the top International Student for the Chartered Institute of Marketing Professional Post-Graduate Diploma Managing Marketing Performance module. Congratulations to Natalia for her success – it is a great achievement for an international student to get the highest marks on any paper, especially at this level. Obviously I am very pleased to have played a part in helping Natalia do so well, but most of the credit has to go to her for the hard work which she put in for the exams. I do know from marking a mock exam paper the standard of work which must have been presented, my congratulations go to Natalia and all the other students who were successful.

It was great to meet up with so many students yesterday and be able to share in their celebration at the ceremony. I’ll post some pictures up if any of my students send me some, please!
