This month we warmly welcomed Elliot Dale to Eclipse Digital Media. He has joined us on a work placement from Kingston University, where he is currently studying a BSc(Hons) Degree in Marketing Management. During his time here, Elliot will be contributing to our Marketing team in various ways and will be writing regular updates on his time spent with us learning about the Digital Signage industry and marketing in general.
To kick things off, we wanted to get to know him a bit better so what better way than a introductory blog post / interview! We asked Elliot a few questions and have included them on this post (which Elliot is helping to compile) so we can all learn a bit more about our new Intern.
