    Peter Newman MI

    Starting off

    After deciding to make the move back to London from foreign climes, I joined Macmillan in 2012 as a sales representative and trainer for Macmillan English Campus. I was thrown in at the deep end, travelling western Europe to meet people to talk about our digital offerings and show them how to embrace and integrate this new technology in a changing classroom – something I didn’t know much about myself before starting.

    Traveling Europe

    From trips to schools in German castles in snow at minus twenty degrees to singing the national anthem to a uniformed General at an ELT exhibition on an army base in central France, my experience was pretty varied. It also gave me a chance to try out other things like leading training sessions, giving talks at conferences and getting involved in marketing.

    New opportunities

    This led me to getting my new role in marketing and communications, which I start this September. It’s an exciting change, and I’ll be able to use everything I’ve learnt here so far and draw on great relationships I’ve made with colleagues across the business and across the globe while diving into something helping to develop a brand new Press and PR team at Macmillan Education.
