About Speed - Networking

Networking can be quite a daunting prospect, especially as a student, which is why we have gathered a group of successful, friendly alumni to be part of our Speed – Networking Event.

You will receive profiles of the alumni attending before the event, to give you a chance to think about what questions you would like to ask them.  The supportive and informal atmosphere is the perfect setting to gain confidence in your networking skills.  Creating and sustaining relationships with colleagues and peers will help you throughout your career.

What are the benefits of taking part?

By the end of the workshop, you will:

  • Practice the networking skills you learnt at the Networking Skills Workshop
  • Meet inspiring alumni from the likes of JP Morgan, PwC and many more
  • Gain insight to different career paths after university to help inform your career decisions

 
What will happen during the Speed – Networking Event?

  • The event is informal; our Alumni team will give an introduction and host the event.  Adam Smith Business School alumni from a range of career destinations will sit at different tables with a group of students.
  • Each alumnus/a will introduce themselves and talk a little about their career since graduating, you will then have an opportunity to ask questions.
  • After 15 minutes, a bell will sound and a different alumnus/a will join your table to repeat the process.
  • At the end of the event, there will be some time for unrestricted networking and refreshments.

 
We will be holding multiple identical events during the academic year. Places are limited and are on a first come, first served basis.  You must complete the Networking Skills Workshop before you can take part in a speed-networking event.

Assessment

On completion of the Speed-Networking Event, you have to fill in a feedback form in order to claim a point towards the Graduate Award.
