We catch up with Matthew Samme, Business BA(Hons), 1995, as he talks us through his time at Kingston studying business, running one of the largest SAP programs in the world at Ernst & Young, and seeing David Beckham miss a penalty against him!
It was the best university in the country to study business and had an attractive course structure including two work placements.
In three words. Tough but fun.
For a couple of football tournaments!
I keep in touch with a core set of friends but a number of us now live outside of the UK so we see each other in person less and less.
I wanted to work in an investment bank but ended up joining PriceWaterhouse as an IT graduate and now find myself running one of the largest SAP programs globally.
I've always been rubbish with names but he was a great corporate business lecturer who used relevant real life examples and coached me with my dissertation.
Work-wise having a happy client, personally having a great wife and two children who I am extremely proud of.
Believe in yourself but spend time to listen and learn
I laugh regularly with my team at work... it keeps us sane!
Winding down and spending time with the family plus a Spurs win.
David Beckham missed a penalty against me.
Richard Branson – he'd probably find a way for us to get off the island.
Bear Grylls' Mission Survival as it probably has some useful tips.
The Hangover for when I need to laugh.
The Trinidad Scorpion Moruga Blend as you might as well go out after eating the hottest chilli pepper in the world!
We love hearing from all Kingston graduates – no piece of news is too big or small, so whatever you have done or are about to do, email us and let us know!
