Adam Byrnes, International Director at Freelancer.com, will be discussing the macrotrends that will redefine the online world over the next 5 years. As part of this talk, he will also discuss the application of STEM skills like Mathematics, Statistics, and Scientific Methods to a field traditionally dominated by qualitative thinking - Marketing and Advertising. In this context, he will share his own career path, and how he utilises knowledge learnt in his Science & Engineering degrees in his role of expanding an internet-based marketplace across the world.

When & Where
UCL Financial Industry Series
UCL FINDS (Financial Industry Series) is a student-run forum that organises high-impact conferences, debates and talks on financial topics. We were founded in December 2010 with the purpose of providing students and professionals alike with the opportunity to look into the latest topics within the financial industry. Attendees can develop not only a comprehensive understanding of the field but also benefit from unique networking opportunities.
In the past, our events have met great demand from students at UCL and other top UK universities as well as from professionals within the industry. In order to make our events accessible to as many students as possible and to maintain the high standard that we strive towards, we count on the support of our partners.
As a UCL-approved institution, we endeavour to promote our university and to build and maintain strong relationships with firms within the industry.
