I’m Miranda Wakeman, a Services Solution Strategy Executive, and sit in the Services Solution Strategy Team, based in TVP. I’m on a break from studying Business Studies with Marketing at Bournemouth University and am really enjoying my year at Microsoft.
My time here has been inspiring and challenging so far. This invaluable experience has given me the opportunity to learn, grow and take initiative within a fast-paced environment. I’ve run end-to-end marketing campaigns, managed events and taken part in personal development and stretch projects.
My top achievements have to be running successful marketing campaigns in the Commercial Sector and managing the Customer Advocacy Programme within Enterprise Services. This involved managing industry events, arranging customer meetings at Future Decoded, creating collateral for customers and maintaining relationships with customers and the agency to create customer stories for Microsoft Enterprise Services.
‘Only three months into my internship I was given the responsibility to manage a HoloLens Executive Roundtable with a manufacturing company’.
I’ve also been part of the core team for DigiGirlz UK to encourage girls to continue with STEM subjects and inspire them to pursue a career in technology. We welcomed more than 150 teachers and schoolgirls to TVP in December, which was such as success that we’re hosting another event in April.
Perhaps my favourite thing about being here is the level of responsibility and trust Microsoft has given me. I never thought I would have achieved so much since starting my internship. Oh, and the swings in the Connection!
