Another amazing Watford Tour of Adland.
The 2015 Tour saw us at Burnetts, AMV/BBDO, CHI, Fallon, Saatchis, WCRS, Dare, Google, BBH, Publicis, VCCP, 18Feet And Rising, McCann, Adam And Eve/DDB, and Mother.
We worked hard. We learned loads. We put on weight. And we 'lost' teams to the business along the way.
WCRS, McCann, Adam and Eve/DDB, BBH, Saatchis, BMB, M&C Saatchi all awarded placements before the end of the course.
Chris and Rosanna were given a contract in April at WCRS following a successful placement at Easter.
Thank you to all our old friends, the new friends we made (Janay!), our supporters and the ex -students who helped me build another crop of talented, hireable people for the business.
See you next year.

The amazingly witty and erudite Jim Carroll delivers one of the smartest talks of our Watford year at BBH.
The Watford Crew and our friends at BBH. I knew I should have used the flash.
And let's not forget The Duchess Of Crouch End who made a Royal Visit to our Course. Thanks Charlie.
They always stay with you.
Whether they've been good or bad.
They're always something that you had.
