Basset Hound Lovers Lancashire Facebook Page
After recently getting a Basset Hound puppy I have fallen in love with them as a breed. After joining many groups Basset Hound groups and pages on Facebook, I was very happy and felt welcomed into the basset hound community, I found them very interesting and very helpful. After seeing how successful the groups are I wanted to create a Basset Hounds page of my own, for my geographical location of Lancashire. I was inspired when I saw a video of an arranged Basset hound walk which looked fantastic! I thought how great it would be if something like that could be arranged in Lancashire so created Basset hound lovers Lancashire Facebook Page. This also relates to my Digital marketing field as I am working on optimizing the popularity of the page.
Management Development Project
For the Management Development module in my second year at The University of Salford, I was the team leader for a project that we had been given for our chosen client which was Ruby Star Associates, for this we had to research what effects an entrepreneur during their first year of business, for example health problems, mental health problems, how it effects their family and eating habits. This was a very interesting project and I learnt a lot from being the team leader. Overall this was a successful project in which we gained high grade.
