UNIVERSITY OF LINCOLN
We were introduced to Lincoln University back in 2019 by another local business, RecruitMe, who were looking for a host for their Connect event, Leading from the Front Line, that had an RAF background but also business experience and so Rory was the perfect fit!
The event saw close to 100 participants from both business and the RAF discuss how each sector interprets tasks differently due to the nature of their work, which results in different ways of working. There were also five fantastic speakers, including the inspiring Major Gen (Retd) Julian Free CBE, Deputy VICE Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, about his experiences within the Army.
Rory also worked with Martin Hickerton, Partnerships Development Manager & MBA Programme Director at the University, on a variety of webinars through the course of last year, and he introduced us to the Film & Media department.
Following on from discussions, we are now working with a group of Year 3 students from that department on a live project tasking them to create a number of visuals to promote Wingman across our social media channels. This collaboration provides the students with a real-life, real-time opportunity to work on a client project from start to finish, giving them some essential experience to take into their working lives after graduation.
We are really looking forward to seeing what they produce for this project and to continuing our collaboration with the University. Keep an eye out for their results through the rest of this year.
