Students on the BA (Hons) Business course at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) recently enjoyed a guest lecture from Rachel Linstead of Firecracker.
Based in the BG Futures Business and Enterprise Centre, Firecracker works with organisations to create a positive workplace culture through nutrition and wellbeing.
Currently first year Business students are looking at the role of each business function as part of their Business Fundamentals module. Rachel’s lecture was therefore a great opportunity for the students to gain a deeper insight into how a wellbeing agenda can be applied across a diverse organisation and the positive results it can bring.
Becky Goodman, Module Leader on the BA Business course, explained why guest lectures form an essential part of the course:
“Guest lectures are a great way for students to keep up to date with what is happening in the world of business and work, especially with regard to specialist areas such as HR and wellbeing.
“Having the benefit of Rachel’s expertise really added value and context to the subject area, and I would like to thank her for giving her time and knowledge.”
If you would like to work with our learners to share your knowledge and expertise then please do contact the BG Futures Careers, Employability and Enterprise team.
