I’ve been informed by my good friend Molly, that I haven’t blogged in FOREVER. Therefore, here I am, blogging for all of you who care.
I apologize for the lack of blogging but I have been studying like crazy and doing so much just to try and stay on track with this intensive Stats class.
The other day though we had a wonderful little field trip to the British Museum. We took a stop at King’s Cross Station to take pictures at Platform 9 3/4.
Naturally, I was extremely excited. I’ve been a huge Harry Potter fan for as long as I can remember. I even brought the first five with me to London and watched the first one while doing laundry the other day. I even made some friends with the FSU people.
When we got to the platform though it was a little… disappointing. It was a brick wall with half of a cart screwed onto it to make it look like the people were walking through it.
Needless to say, I still look a picture.
Yep. That’s me 🙂
We then went to the British Museum, and looked at all these amazingly old and beautiful manuscripts. They had a King James Version of the bible circa 1611. It’s where all of the key phrases of christianity and our society. I read the words,”In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” This was the text that that came from, literally. It was such a wonderful feeling to read those words aloud from the original text.
Today, we went on another class trip but to dunhumby. I already wanted to work with them but after the wonderful presentation today by one of their staff that has been there for 14 years, I was beyond impressed. Their company covers rather broad spectrum marketing all focusing on the cold-hard data.
This kind of thing is fascinating to me. To take a bunch of numbers that represent the customer and then translate it to make sense in laments terms. They then apply that knowledge to companies so that they can make proper decisions based on the customers wants and needs which has a growing popularity with the recession. Placing the customer at the center of every decision is their entire philosophy because building customer loyalty is the only way to ensure that your customers stay with your company and overall build goodwill.
Here is a picture of all of the GLS class in front of dunhumby.
