The ‘not so secret’ diary of Ed Clark – Episode 11, The Penultimate Diary

I’ve been here at Innovative Technology for nearly a year now, but it doesn’t feel like it has been that long. I think the people that I’ve worked with and the work I have done has allowed me to enjoy the year and has made it go very quickly.

With Innovative’s International marketing growing in line with the business, Dayna has been looking for a permanent marketing assistant to come in after I leave, so last week I was given the opportunity to help out at the Marketing Graduate Assessment Day. It was good to see candidates in a similar field to me and was nice to have been involved in the process.

This month my focus has been largely switched away from marketing the offshoot businesses and back to focussing on the new products that Innovative are looking to release in the near future. There are a number of products that will be released shortly so I have been producing material ready for when they are ready to launch. I have needed to learn in a pretty short space of time about the different capabilities of the new products in order to be in a position to write about them. At this point I feel I should thank those that have been very patient in explaining the more technical information to me.

Another project of mine that has been ongoing is a staff video for the website. I have had to learn a lot about video production, editing and all of the other intricacies that go into making a short clip. The video will be ready before I leave at the end of June and I will link it to my last blog article on Friday 27th.

I was also asked this week to start getting ready to do a presentation to my bosses here at Innovative on my last day. It has been interesting again looking over my work from months ago and trying to summarise my year into a presentation. But don’t tell Aidan Towey (Managing Director) that the work I have been preparing for University on my work placement has come in very handy for content on my presentation.

The staff from the other offices around Europe have been arriving this morning for the Party tonight, and we are all looking forward to celebrating being awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
