Ben reviews his recent ordeal and reveals his new look…
I’m writing this on the 2nd of December, post-mo-shave, after the most challenging month of my life. Even so, I can safely say that I’m glad I did it. So far I’ve raised £95 for charity (come on, lets make it £100!) and to be honest the mo did start to grow on me…
So as I sit here with a cold and naked top lip, I’d like to thank you for your support and for putting up with me talking nonsense on this grad blog. If you are a prospective applicant, then I hope that it’s given you an insight into the outgoing and non-corporate attitude that is embedded throughout the Specialist & Activity Sector. It truly is a great place to work and I would highly recommmend the grad scheme. Now if you want any more advice then you’re gonna have to donate to Movember: http://mobro.co/BenjaminGill 😉
Anyway, enough corruption. This past week has seen me take my mo to Birmingham University to judge a large group of students ideas for a social media strategy for Gullivers Sports Travel (one of our sports brands). They found it highly amusing as I tried to keep a straight face and ask them serious questions with a bushy top lip! I also decided to remove my “tickler” (despite the lack of votes) in order to try a different look for the final few days of the month, which was very refreshing. Finally, a kind old friend of mine donated a generous £10, but then asked whether it was for charity or just for my back pocket!
So just to make this clear, I didn’t do this for profit. All the money donated is in aid of testicular & prostate cancer charities. For more info and to donate click here: http://mobro.co/BenjaminGill.
On the final day of Movember, it was only right to have a silly photo shoot with a Mo Bro… see the result below.
And finally, here is the timeline of the month:
Thanks for reading and even more thanks for your support.
Mover and out.
