Metrix Consulting has always been a breeding ground for amazing young talent. Now the company is taking its investment in the market researchers of the future to the next level with a five-year sponsorship of the University of Western Australia’s (UWA) Marketing Research Student Prize.
Managing Director, Marquis Pohla, said the sponsorship was a great way to give back to UWA, which has been a big supporter of the Metrix Graduate Program.
“Developing young professionals from the ground up has always been part of our approach and we have been fortunate to have many UWA graduates grow with the business over the years,” he said. “We hope the Student Prize inspires individual under-graduates to excel and that it also contributes to building an exceptional talent pool within our industry.”
Pohla recently met with 2018 UWA Marketing Research Student Prize winner, Madison Liddelow, and was impressed with her drive and fresh thinking.
“Madison is a great example of the skills and innovation UWA is instilling into its marketing research students,” he said. “UWA graduates are well-rounded and display a great balance of theoretical knowledge and real-world experience.”
Liddelow is in her final year of a double degree in Marketing and Neuroscience at UWA and she will put the $1,000 Student Prize money towards completing her studies.
