accelerate! program 2014

Lucy Rao of Allen & Overy announced as the winner of the APSMA McLoughlinBall “Accelerate” Program.  

The Program was open to all APSMA members in all Association geographies. The prize was a place on the graduate diploma course in professional services, certified by the Chartered Institute of Marketing in the UK, and run by Cambridge Marketing College.

It is an online course and students are able to work very flexibly  around their other work and family commitments. It is the only    course we know of which relates exclusively to to the professional services sector and is extremely appropriate for APSMA members given that there is no formal university qualification exclusively dedicated to our industry at present. We were absolutely delighted  with the calibre of entrants to the program so much so that we awarded two Highly Commended prizes as well as the actual winner.  Those went to 
Nicola Sutcliffe of Jacobs and Elly Davis of Frontier Economic.


Lucy Rao as winner of the program showed a keen drive and desire to gain a qualification which will help her develop her offering internally to the firm and help drive her career with Allen & Overy. We wish her well in her studies and beyond and we look forward to hearing from  her over the coming months as to how the course is going and how  it’s complementing her career. The program will run again in 2015, so look out for communications around the launch date which should be around June 2015.
