The best car collection on campus?

This week,  we discussed the different strategies that companies use to market their products to different customers. We also discussed the importance of the different functions within organisations. One thing led to another and we found ourselves talking about books that inspire others.

This led to the book ‘ The Monk who sold his Ferrari’

This will make you jealous

I decided it was time to tease the students with my incredible collection of cars. I mentioned some of the cars that I own including Ferrari F40, Lamborghini Aventador, the F1 car that Lewis Hamilton won his 4th world championship in and my favourite, the Bugatti Veyron. Of course the students were suitably impressed and many volunteered to look at my collection and even test drive them on campus.

Whilst we were all getting carried away into dreamland, I thought it was time to tell them about the physical challenge they may face in driving my version of these cars. They needed a massive amount of imagination not to mention will power because my cars are somehow physically challenged. Of course size is not everything.

Let the fun begin

Yes of course, you guessed it, all the cars were models bought from Amazon at princely sums that are only a few pounds at a time.😂.

Did we have a great laugh? you bet.

The following week, having gone through the Accounting and finance part of the module, it was time to bring out the cars.

The winners

The Ferrari went to Bhavna, the Lamborghini is now being looked after by Shobha and Ike is the proud owner of the Bugatti Veyron. I have been collecting model cars for a very long time, so its time to start giving them out.

For future students, there are even more gifts and fun
