Lecturer wins Person of the Year award

A lecturer who taught the first ever digital marketing course in Northern Ireland has been named Digital Industries Person of the Year.

Kathryn Pyper received the award for her dedication to teaching at Belfast Metropolitan College and the success of her marketing campaigns for the Northern Ireland Tourist Board as part of the CultureTech Festival of digital technology, media, music and art.

Christin Watson, chair of the Charter Institute of Marketing Ireland and a former student of Kathryn, said: “Kathryn is a talented digital marketer. Her passion for the marketing profession is inspiring.”

Kathryn began teaching the digital marketing course in 2010 and since then has seen more than 60 students complete the qualification, with a 100 per cent pass rate this year.
