Phil Lewis, Director General at the Anti-Counterfeiting Group (ACG) delivered a presentation yesterday to MBA (Master of Business Administration) students at Southampton University.
The presentation entitled Counterfeiting; its global scope, scale' and impact was well received by the students and generated a lot of questions and discussion topics.
"It was a most engaging talk and sudents kept talking about the challenge. We spent another hour discussing how counterfeiting really affects brands" commented Paurav Shukla, Professor of Marketing at the Southampton Business School.
Phil agreed, adding "The questions from the group were so perceptive. It was an absolute pleasure to meet everyone."
