I have known Michael Chapman-Johns in the capacity of being his academic advisor during his time at Durham University Business School and he took part in my Consumer Psychology module.
He came through the foundation route, which meant this course was four years and an intense year with our foundation year was required before starting the formal degree. His shopper marketing sales growth report was an interesting read and highly professional. Showing an advanced understanding of critical concepts taught in my Consumer Psychology module.
Seeing him excel in this module and many others during his time at the business school was a joy. As a mature student, he also bought a unique level of experience and foresight into the lectures and seminars we had together.
His interest in social justice issues went above and beyond the teaching at Durham University Business School and saw him take an active role in a student-led Gala raising money for Feeding Families. He also took a keen interest in feedback sessions from the teaching teach, with aims of developing the course year on year.
I am aware of his excellent progression in academic attainment from the foundation year throughout the course as he got further into the degree. His application of the theories taught to his business thinking and practice at Element Media Limited, has been noticed, and all the teaching staff who have worked with him discuss him positively and passionately.
