Chris Davies is sparklingly intelligent, and sharply perceptive. He has a brilliant knack for understanding the talents and drives of others (which they themselves might not know) and the experience and know-how for getting that first foot in the door.
I would urge anyone who is feeling lost since leaving education to pick up The Student Book. You may be surprised at where it takes you.
When I first met Chris, I was lost and overwhelmed, in a maze of potential career paths with conflicting advice on which to follow. Having achieved top grades across the board at school I’d gone on to complete a BSc and MSc at one of the world’s top universities before a brief and unfulfilling stint in academic publishing.
Careers advice at university seemed limited to pursuing either banking, academia or management consultancy. The thought of pursuing any of those options left me feeling cold. Chris helped me find my strengths and channel them into a career I’d never even thought of before.Now five years on I’m the director of my own company, providing services within the creative industry for a range of world-famous brands, government departments, and charities. I worked hard to get here but I attribute much of my success to Chris’s advice.
