From Australia to TLC, Lara’s unforgettable year

Lara's year

Welcoming four new placement students every year means that we have four, very hard goodbyes to say yet again this summer.

From Lara’s initial interview, TLC Marketing saw a passion for business and an appetite for Account Management. Whilst many placement students join TLC with little work experience, Lara had already been climbing the career ladder having taken up numerous roles across the globe, in countries such as France, Australia and America.

From being a Wedding Planners assistant in the South of France to interning at a movie distribution company and government organisation in Australia, Lara joined with a wealth of knowledge that has helped her to excel in her placement year.

Junior Planner and university star: Katie’s year

Farewell Katie

Every year, TLC Marketing are blown away by the high calibre of talent that placement students bring and today, it’s time to celebrate Katie’s time at TLC Marketing.

Katie joined the TLC Marketing Planning team last summer as a highly motivated and driven advertising student who at university alone, is always the first to put herself forward for extra-curriculum activities. She spent her second year at university as a Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) leader to first-year students and while fully immersing herself at TLC, Katie has continued to support others, dedicating her spare time to being a Bournemouth University placement leader.

Ones to Watch. Issue #6.

Ones to Watch. Issue #1.

Oi oi, we are kicking off (excuse the pun) with a few World Cup themed trends this month, because let’s face it, it is hard to avoid – even for someone who knows very little about football so bear with me.

Football Italia bar

Newly opened in Camberwell, South London, Golazio celebrates everything that was great about the 90’s Serie A league and the best stone baked pizzas. Owner Tim wanted to combine his love for Football Italia with an American concept that he picked up while travelling The States in his 20’s – pizza by the slice. Showing full-length classic games on three big screens, displaying a collection of vintage memorabilia, serving Italian inspired cocktails and even playing Pavarotti in the toilets, you will be transported back in time to the days of Gazza, Signori and Lombardo. If that wasn’t reason enough to visit it is also the only bar serving Italian craft beers South of the river, and 12 different varieties at that. Themed bars are growing ever popular but this is one of our favourites, the more niche the better.
