Grad Week activities

Action Planning

Join us for Action Planning, an activity which will enable you to create personal action plans for life and work after graduation. It will break it down into a series of actions, audiences, timelines and measures of success so that you have a clear plan for implementation.   

As Benjamin Franklin said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” Join this workshop to ensure you create the action plans you need for your future success after graduation.

Defining Your Purpose

Join us Defining Your Purpose, an activity to support you to understand what your personal brand is, to both help potential employers know what makes you unique, and to articulate for yourself what they want to be known for in their futures.

Why should anyone employ you? What is it about your life experience, sense of purpose and skill set that makes you the ideal hire? Join this workshop to help define what makes you unique and what you stand for.

The Leader You've Become

Join us for The Leader You’ve Become, an activity to help you to understand what the critical moments and people have been in your life, how they’ve gotten you to this point and what you want to achieve and stand for as you head out into the world.

What kind of leader do you want to become and why would anyone follow you? Join this workshop to explore the pivotal moments in your life and how they have shaped you, define what you are passionate about so you can, as Gandhi said, “be the change you want to see.”

Trends of the Future with Global Industry Leaders

Want to know what the future world of work looks like? Want to know how best to prepare yourself to succeed after graduation?

This short video introduces our three global leaders based in the UK, Dubai and Singapore who will share their experiences working for organisations such as BP, Johnson Controls, Africa Finance Corporation, GE, Accenture, EY, Cisco and the World Economic Forum.

Don’t miss out! Register for the LIVE event on Wednesday 16 December.
