Thank you so much, Charlie. I have always valued the time I spent at GBW because it helped me grow as an engineering student and as a person in general.
Delegate Relations Manager at Informa
"I joined GBW as a Business Development Associate (changed to Business Partnership Associate when the company continued to progress) as a part of my placement year at Nottingham Trent University. During this time, I worked closely with L. Charlie Oliver who took me under her wing to teach me what she knew so that I could not only settle into the role and feel comfortable in America, but also to improve me as a worker so I can advance in the future. I was granted autonomy as well as guidance where necessary, introduced to important players in the industry and challenged to help Charlie improve the company. The experience for me was intangible because it has added so much to my CV and given me the chance to live my dream of living and working on Wall Street. For this, I will forever be thankful to Charlie for her faith in me, her determination to complete the lengthy process to get me here and her trust in my abilities to add value to GBW. I would recommend GBW to anybody that enjoys a challenge and wants to truly test their character and intellect as well as make some life-long friends along the way."
