Dr Xuemei Bian who teaches the MBA International Marketing module explained, “Daniel was incredibly down to earth and the students learned so much from him in just two hours.”

As Dr Bian continues, “The lecture gave students direct insight into international marketing activities from a practitioner’s perspective and was highly relevant to the MBA.”

The lecture was followed by an interactive Q & A session for students. As MBA student Khadijah Kadoma Kemirembe comments:

“As a student of international marketing, I found the lecture and Q & A session highly engaging. In order to create competitive advantage, Daniel taught us the value of having a winning formula for squeezing market returns… But what I found most interesting was how much emphasis Daniel placed on having a good team.”
