Final Blog for WSPA – P1 Core Workshop 27/10/11

Final Blog for WSPA– P1 Core Workshop 27/10/11

Name of Tutor: Samena Rashid

Date of Workshop:Thursday 27th October

My Action Plan:

Over the past few weeks, I have been working on these points:

  • Time management skills

Over the past few weeks, my time management skills have vastly improved. As a result of this, I feel that the quality of my academic work has improved as I have not had to rush to complete deadines. Furthermore, I have actually had more free time to go to the gym or socialise and thus my work/life balance has noticeably improved. A key point still to work on is being productive in the mornings and getting up, as I still struggle to do anything before my first lecture of the day!

  • Developing Commercial Awareness

Today I attended the WBFS Barclays Capital Equity Capital Markets Presentation, where I learnt a great deal about the division, as well as a wider look at the current UK economic outlook and what it means for the stock market. I have also finished 'All You Need to Know About the City' and feel confident that my new-found commerical awareness will help in upcoming interviews. Yet, developing commercial awareness is an ongoing process, so I ensure that I regularly read the FT and the Gateway to keep on top of developments.

  • IT/ Computer Literacy

I am now half-way through the 10 lessons for the Microsoft Excel Specialist 2010 Qualification. I feel confident that I will be able to complete the remainder of the lessons over the Christmas break, and pass the test in January.

Thank you for reading my final blog entry,

Marc Newall, First Year PPE-ist, ID: 1101455

    Dear Marc

    Thankyou for this update.

    For your final blog entry can you expand on the above blog by writing a more detailed reflective account on your development, can you draw upon your progress a bit more for example in your second blog entry you have mentioned that you have attended a number of events etc to enhance your commercial awareness, it would be nice to see they key things you picked up and key learning you have achieved, how this has helped you develop your commercial awareness. Can you also reflect on things that did not go so well and what you would do differently.

    I look forward to your next entry

    best wishes
