“Authentic Networking: Own Your Leadership Path”

Evidence suggests graduates who get jobs are the individuals who build relationships effectively and leverage their network to access the hidden job market.

Student 2 Business is London’s premier Career Networking conference and your pathway to the hidden job market. It brings together over 500 students and 250 employer representatives for an informative keynote address, workshops and a networking reception designed to showcase career opportunities across London’s diverse economic sectors. The event is hosted at the London Convention Centre, March 2, 2016.

Your registration includes a special keynote presentation from Bobby Umar. One of Inc. Magazine’s Top 100 Leadership speakers, Bobby is a 4X TEDx Speaker, international author, Huffington Post contributor and social media guru who champions authentic connection and heart-based leadership. 100, 000+ people across the world have experienced Bobby’s high-energy keynotes, interactive teambuilding activities, engaging workshops and Networking Mastery coaching programs. Bobby will deliver a message entitled “Authentic Networking: Own your Leadership Path”

Students tell us, the highlight of the Conference is the networking forum. Taking place in the main ballroom, you can access employers from 12+ industries. Sectors represented include: Government and   Education, Finance & Insurance, Health/Life Sciences,  Advanced Manufacturing and Construction, Agrifood processing,  Marketing & Communications, Digital Media, Not for Profit, Engineering and Professional Services.

This is your opportunity to connect with professionals from these sectors. You can ask questions about jobs available in their industry, training requirements, application tips and many other things. All within an atmosphere, that is more casual than a job fair. Deliver your elevator pitch and share your business card. While you are at it, grab their business card so you can follow up after to develop the connection further.
