Alumni Networking Event: Dare to be Different in Your Career

31st Mar 2011 - 12:00am

Business School

The next free alumni networking evening is taking place on Thursday 31st March, from 5pm to 8pm, in the Business and Law building at the Ormskirk Campus.

Dave McTague and Rich Pontefract, of Another Media, a successful marketing and promotions company based in Liverpool, are guest speakers and will discuss how they have grown the company by following a unique and creative business model.

The organisation is a multi-faceted agency, operating as a collective and offering a host of supporting marketing services. Almost all members are independently involved in various projects as well as those with the company. Primarily they work within the arts, music and cultural sectors, with strong ties to Liverpool and its arts.

On the night the speakers will discuss their innovative business approach and will then be asked questions from our University panel. There will then be an open question and answer session where attendees can ask the entrepreneurs advice and learn from their experiences in continuing to be successful in growing a unique company and recruiting new employees and partners in a difficult economic climate.

Following the session there will be the opportunity to network with Edge Hill alumni, University staff and the business community over drinks and canapés in the stunning Business, Law and Criminology building.

Whether you are looking for your next career move, want to start your own business or develop in your career, our networking events teach essential skills and advice for the workplace and are a way of promoting yourself, your company and developing new contacts.

Academic lecturers will be available earlier in the evening for information on our range of postgraduate courses, which alumni can benefit from a 20% discount on eligible full and part time postgraduate course fees.
