31 January 2018 - 9:56 am CHANGE – Women in Leadership
One shiny morning, I woke up to the realisation that I have never tried listening to podcasts before on my way to work or school. So, I took my phone out and I started browsing through an endless list of options, when I discovered Revisionist History by Malcolm Gladwell. Malcolm Gladwell is an exceptional storyteller and the very first story he shared was about a woman, named Elizabeth Thompson, a British painter.But not just a painter, since Elizabeth Thompson is the first woman to be nominated for election for the Royal Academy, as you might expect, a male-dominated world. However, whilst this was a great feat for women around the world and art in general, Gladwell argues that the appreciation of the Roll Call painting, that brought Elizabeth’s fame and her nomination, has also brought her downfall. Why? You might ask. How can her talent be at fault?

17 February 2015 - 4:50 pm E is for….
If it isn’t one E word (enterprise) that I go on about, it is another one, employability.
We all know that the graduate market is highly competitive and you need to be able to stand out from the crowd. The way I like to describe this is by thinking of a cake: your degree is a great solid base that has got the essential knowledge that you need to do the job (or in a cake sense, you need the sponge to be a cake) but it is the things that you do on top of your degree that makes you more attractive to employers (and for me, the sprinkles, toppings and anything else you can fit on the cake makes it sooo much more attractive).

16 November 2014 - 1:22 pm Who wants to be an Entrepreneur?
This is a question that we seem to ask quite a bit here at USE. However, in an up and coming event you will be able to ask a group of people who have been there and done that, why they became an entrepreneur. What are the advantages and disadvantages of working for yourself and my favourite question- what they think is their biggest achievement? Continue reading “Who wants to be an Entrepreneur?” »
