Mr Guardo has clearly a very good knowledge and  understanding of the theory and practice of  Broadcast Journalism, Radio Broadcasting, Political Communication, International Media and Culture.  He has complete command of the English language, oral and written.”

“My first professional encounter with Mr. Davido was in year 2005 in London during my position as Product Executive at Jac. Mr. David was at that time studying at the University of Wolverhampton.  He came to us as a trainee and I had the pleasure to manage and train him in a period of 12 months. During his traineeperiod David developed great skills in Travel industry, developed great knowledge in English language and showed immense willingness to learn new things and was never afraid of challenges! At some point David was in charge of smaller projects and he always delivered on time and was often willing to share his creative ideas of how things could be executed in an even better way! Mr. David is an excellent team- player, with him onboard the team would always perform well and deliver and he also managed to work on his own”.

“Apart from that he is a good communicator, open-minded and therefore open to new ideas. He is always very professional, is very reliable, trustworthy and handles well stressful situations, which often occures in travel industry where deadlines must be met. Mostly, I remember David as a postitive person and he always came to work with a smile on his face. He soon became a great colleagues in the office and it was a pleasure to see him grow professionaly and personally. I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone as I know he will always give his 100% and will deliver! If I today once again would have the possibility to work with Mr. David I would be honored and glad to work with a person like him.”

“I have known David Guardo at Prisma MPA Grupo, communication agency based in Spain. David was in charge of developing communication strategies to new clients. I was impressed by the entrepreneurship talent of David, his ability to manage several projects at the same time, and above all his multicultural background. Beside his high professionalism, I would highly recommend working with David for his personal skills: his positivism and good mood make any ambitious challenge possible.

“David Guardo was a student of Media and Communication here at the University of Wolverhampton. He graduated with a BA Hons in September 2007. His practical media work was particularly good. He has a genuine interest in the relationship between media and sport-and did some good practical (and written) work on this theme. He also successfully studied a range of other subjects including Broadcast Journalism, Radio Broadcasting, and Political Communication. He also studied international media and culture in the modules Global Media/Global Culture and Contemporary Media: Beyond National Boundaries. In addition, he successfully completed a final-year double-credit Independent Study Project.”
