Description

In the spirit of providing support to local businesses and inspiring our students, the University of Portsmouth and the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce are delighted to announce that Vice-Chancellor, Professor Graham Galbraith, will be introducing an alumna from the University of Portsmouth, our Chancellor Karen Blackett OBE, as our guest speaker at this year’s Big Networking Night.

The Big Networking Night #BNN2018 is an opportunity to be inspired by Karen’s experience in business and brings members of the local business community together to provide motivation to our students. Meet other entrepreneurial-minded people and find out more about support and opportunities provided by the University, including Degree Apprenticeships, CPD, business consultancy projects and much more.
