Noel Penzer discusses change at Peter Symonds, Winchester
23 September 2014
Noel Penzer, Managing Director of AOL gave a special talk to 60 business and economics students at Peter Symonds College, Winchester. He emphasised the importance of adaptability in a changing market, investing in people and keeping a shrewd eye out for new business opportunities.
The students had the opportunity to learn about the digital distribution of content, online advertising and the ways in which viral articles and videos can translate into profitable wins for stakeholders.
Having trained originally as an engineer, pursuing a career in IT when he learnt of the meteoric potential of the internet, Noel Penzer had great insights to show what is possible for those committed to teaching themselves in a fast-moving world of technology.
After the talk, their teacher said Noel really brought the world of business to life and showed the students the ‘reality behind the theory’ of their studies.
