Acknowledgements
I would like to thank all team members and all departments of Breccia Investment LTD, especially Lillian and Alice for being kind and accepting to me. By giving me this opportunity I was not only able to show my skills within the work place but also discover my fondness to the business and managerial sector. I have profound admiration to the marketing team and especially the C.E.O for having the patience to mentor me into becoming what I am today. A lot of gratitude and appreciation is acknowledged here. Thank you

Introduction
During summer 2011, I had to partake in a minimum of 24 hour placement that the ‘’Working with the Media’’ module at the university required. It was such a wonderful experience for me to discover what underlying skills I had. I was fortunate enough to travel back to my home country, Kenya, and get a placement job at a firm called Breccia Investments LTD. The firm is located in Africa, more specifically East Africa and deals with the selling of raw materials, specifically animal feeds such as Rice germ, Omena, Sunflower, Cotton cake, pig finisher and chicken layers. Within the firm there are different sectors. In particular I worked closely with the marketing team and the C.E.O.

History of Firm
Breccia Investment LTD. Is a firm based in Nairobi, Kenya and is owned by a Sole Trader. The C.E.O, Ms. Lillian Musau has brought up the business from the ground up making it what is a well known firm in its class of businesses. The firm was started in 1998 and continues to expand and grow. Breccia’s family consists of a marketing team, IT team and Finance team, through which they all intertwine and keep the business going. Although it is not an international company, Breccia is a nationwide firm that deals with the sale of animal feeds to buyers from different regions in the country. Ms. Lillian Musau decided to go into this business because Kenya thrives on agricultural products and animal feeds seemed to be a great way to excel and make some profit.
