Dale Stewart, General Mills
What course did you study?
How did studying at Pearson College London help you get into the world of business?
Pearson College London gave me a perfect platform with regards to preparation for work in a global organisation. Elements of our academic studies such as Blackboard Collaborate provided me with first hand experience of working with other students on the same project whilst in numerous different locations. This is something you now do numerous times on a weekly basis. It definitely helps studying at an educational institution that is also part of a FTSE 100 company.
What are you working on at the moment?
I'm currently working for General Mills, one of world's largest FMCG companies, boasting brands such as Haagen Daz, Nature Valley and Old ElPaso. I am also studying an MSc in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship at Bournemouth University.
What lessons have you learnt during your time studying and your time working in business?
This may sound cliché but ANYTHING is possible with hard work, accountability and surrounding yourself with positive energy, thoughts and people.
What was your favourite part of studying at Pearson College London?
Definitely the industry events such as the one we went to at Unilever HQ. This gave us students a real insight into global organisations.
If you had to sum up your time at Pearson College London in one word, what would it be and why?
It is impossible in just one word, I'd say Pearson College London is a Rolls Royce educational institution.
What's your favourite brand and why?
My favourite brand has to be Kelloggs, growing up with the brand on the breakfast table and having the opportunity to be part of such an organisation straight after graduating from Pearson College London being my key indicators.
