We have started off our first academic event of the semester with a global careers series about the misspelling myths of Africa. The continent is often misunderstood and is often disregarded as a place to look for a job opportunity. The conference was most enlightening to all attendees, and also presented them with the endless opportunities to take advantage of in that geographical area.
This event was followed by an intimate roundtable discussion seminar on the topic of values. Values are not only personal guidelines we live by but also have a big role in personal management in our multicultural world. Through our ever involving technology we are quick to forget the core of human existence and how to create environments, in which we can best succeed in. The intimate environment of which each table made the discussion more personal. This event was co-chaired by our chancellor, Professor John Drew.
The last event organised by the Academic Events Team was based on the successful character of a young entrepreneur, CEO and founder of Invisibobble. Through her “TED talk-style” speech students were able to understand how through mistakes success can be reached, overcoming the ingenuity of young minds and the difficulties of today’s world.
