This is more of an update, as I haven’t found a calendar / scheduling application yet that announces dates in a format that I’d like it to. So in this post I’ll map out my upcoming speaker engagements in the next two months. I can’t really say what I’ll be learning just yet (so it’s a bit off topic) but I’m looking forward to some stimulating discussions and live tweets – and some valuable lessons to share.
There are two slots on employability and higher education policy, wearing (mostly) my hat as chair of PlaceNet – Placements in Industry Network:
My first (short) talk is at an event on ‘Assessing the recommendations in the Wilson Review – internships, work placements and further collaboration between universities and businesses’. The second one is about ‘Policy into Practice: Latest graduate employability initiatives in action’. Also, I have an invite to speak at a National Union of Students event at the end of the month in Manchester. I’ll do an update when I get more details.
As usual around this time of year, I will be delivering a talk about using social media and employability to alumni of London Metropolitan University and next month to students and staff at the University of East London. And I’ll be at the Futuretrack Conference in early November. So, a busy two months.
PS: Oh yes, today (17/10/12), I’ll be part of the NASES live webchat ‘Getting ready to find a job using social media’
