Event description

Description

Do you wish you had a knack for spotting and seizing opportunities?
Would you like to know more about climbing or developing your career without necessarily following a set path or trajectory?


Join JCI Cambridge as we hear from Jason Mellad, scientist entrepreneur, in his talk "How to start something amazing". Jason will cover his personal journey from academia to the biotechnology industry, and the boardroom. He will focus on the importance of spotting and seizing opportunities, collaborative work, and paying it forward to help the next generation of entrepreneurs.

If you are just starting out in your career this will be a great opportunity to find out more about how to achieve success while diversifying your skillset; for those already established in their careers this is an opportunity to learn more about taking the next step, which may not always be the most obvious one to further success.
