It’s time for a guest speaker! We were really pleased to welcome Emma Morton – joint winner of Teesside University’s Public Relations Student of the Year 2019 – to DTW for a week.

Emma was with us for a week’s work experience and became a real part of the team during her time at DTW. But don’t take it from us – you can watch and listen to Emma talking about her week with DTW in her own words.

We’re going to be sponsoring the Public Relations Student of the Year prize again in 2020. It’s important organisations in our industry are involved with initiatives like this. It gives students a chance to shine and learn and helps keep businesses like us on our toes. In our experience, the ideas, creativity, and passion that work experience students and graduates bring when working with us is a huge asset to DTW.

And we should know, we’re proud to say we have six Teesside graduates as part of our team. They are specialists in everything from animation and video to marketing strategy, and we’re regularly in and out of the University to chat with students and lecturers about various industry issues and opportunities.

As for Emma, we think she’s a star in the making – one we’ll be keeping an eye on.
