Dr Jennifer Hagan, Principal Lecturer at Teesside University Business School, who delivered the event, said: ‘The High Tide events have really showcased the future talent of the UK events industry. Every single participant showed their knowledge, displayed great team working and really applied their learning into the challenge.
‘The students came from different areas of study with a mix of interests, which reflected the diversity of the industry itself. Every group came up with an original festival idea that could have been created and made an impact, they were really inspiring.’
Lauren Bywater, High Tide’s General Manager also comments: “After working with Teesside University for a number of years, it was amazing to collaborate on the launch of the new 3-day progress with the Business School.
“Our programmes are designed to showcase career opportunities and provide live engagement with employers, all critical to increase awareness, raise confidence and help young people make more informed decisions. We’re looking forward to planning more programmes together in the future.”
Teesside University has worked with High Tide for many years to provide successful work experience events for students and hopes to provide more students with work experience with the hope to run the same event again in 2022.
