We are honoured to be working with Draper’s Academy in Essex to mentor students as part of their Dragon’s Den style inter-school competition, giving support and AKA insight on how to market a brand.
Over the last 9 months, Client Services team members Daniel Friar and Jo Allick have been working with a superstar team from the school who created an innovative ‘subscription service’ idea calledIn The Box. In November, the team presented their idea against three other Draper’s teams in a hard fought competition to become the winning school – moving them ahead to the Grand Championships against the other City of London Livery Guilds.
The team went above and beyond and were crowned the 2019 Champions at the Mansion House winning against two other schools supported by other major agencies – a huge victory for both Draper’s Academy & AKA alike! It’s been a huge privilege to work with future keen marketers and volunteer time to such a worthwhile cause.
