We are planning to deliver joint events and career enhancing activities at venues around the world to engage with our alumni globally. These events will be advertised to a total of 1/2 million professionals and will provide the opportunity for them to learn from experts in the field of business as well as to network with each other.
We aim to engage with alumni from across Europe and beyond and to remind the world that the UK is a global leader in business and finance and that its educational environment is second to none. Universities are essential for building a strong and innovative economy. This initiative will promote HE UK internationally and will significantly contribute to the generation of relationships across the sector.
The networks first event, The Power of the Global Brand with Richard Learwood, Global Marketing Director for Eukanuba, Procter & Gamble, will be hosted by Westminster Business School on 20th January.
Richard says “It’s an honour to speak at this inaugural Association of Business Schools event. I am looking forward to a lively debate on the subject of Global Brand strategy. As a member of the alumni myself it is great to have the opportunity to contribute and I wish the ABS great success as it builds this important network that will be of immense value to its members”.
The event will be the first in a series of alumni activities established through the Association of Business Schools that sees UK Business Schools coming together to offer more exciting events and broader networking opportunities for their alumni in the UK and around the world.
