Christopher Knight (BA Honours Sports Marketing and Public Relations, 2014)

Christopher took a different route to graduation than some students, as he received the invaluable opportunity to complete a year’s internship with Nike as an Account Executive during his studies. Following his graduation earlier this year, Chris became an Account Executive at the creative strategic agency Forever Beta.

He is very proud of his internship with Nike, but Chris is firmly focused on the future: “I firmly believe in thinking big and looking forward, so I hope my big career highlight is yet to come.”

In light of his successes since graduation, Chris would start an entrepreneurial society if he were to repeat his student experience, and highly recommends Leeds Beckett to others wanting to succeed: “There are some great lecturers who really understand the qualities of individual students, and how to help them develop.”

Chris is the co-founder of Samply, a company producing a smartphone application which allows brands to distribute product samples to the app’s users in return for capturing customer feedback. He is indebted to Leeds Beckett for their awarding him the £1,500 Business Concept of the Year accolade at the Leeds Beckett University Enterprise Awards earlier this year.
