We all think about our lives and our careers. Some challenges we face revolve around questions such as "when should I do my next move?" "Is this what I want to do for the rest of my life?" "I want a more fulfilling career", "what do I do next?" "How can I enhance my skills and play to my strengths?" "How best can I find my next job in this competitive market place?"
Warwick London Alumni invites you to ‘Your Life, Your Career’ which features 5 experienced speakers discussing career change, development and advancement. The event will be a series of short talks followed by Q&A and networking opportunities.
A career is the most important single asset any of us have. It is key to our financial futures and our psychological well being but we all massively under invest in ourselves so take a couple of hours out of your life for hints and tipsand expert help!

When & Where
Warwick London Alumni Network (W.L.A.N)
The Warwick London Alumni Network (W.L.A.N) was formed in late 2009. We develop relationships amongst members and offer a balanced programme of business-oriented and social events for alumni and others with connections to Warwick and WBS.
The aim of the group is to build on the work of the Corporate Relations Team to create an identity & meeting place for London based Warwick graduates (both University & Business School).
We seek to encourage graduate engagement by organising interesting and fun events and other initiatives so that they too may give something back that will benefit the wider Warwick graduate community in London.
Don't let the Warwick experience end just because you have graduated ;)
