Paul Walters has taught at our institution for many years and has been appreciated by both colleagues and students.

Even though he was flying in and out for modular blocks, he appeared to be a permanent and engaged member of our team.

The students loved his real-life examples and vast practical experience from the events industry, combining both theory and practice in his teaching methods. Colleagues enjoyed the exchange of knowledge outside the class room and his good sense of humor and pleasant character.

As the former Director of ANGELL Business School in Freiburg, Germany, it has been a pleasure working with Paul and I can only but strongly recommend him professionally for any future endeavors.

Testimonial Bolton

I write in my capacity as Dean of the Off Campus Division at the University of Bolton, the University having had a partnership with an institution where Paul held the post of Academic Lead.

During the years in which Paul led the Higher Education provision at the institution, the quality of the student experience improved dramatically. This was evidenced by the pronounced rise in NSS student staisfaction ratings during that time.

Paul always interacted with the University with a high level of professionality and diligence. We observed an overall increase in attainment which I put down in high degree to Paul’s leadership.

In my view Paul demonstrated leadership and delivered tangible improvements in student experience through his teaching and leadership.
