10:00-11:15am Celebrating your academic community

Chair: Andrew Sinclair and Jules Mundair 
Expert Speaker: Emma Pleasant

In this session we consider what a degree means and the reasons why a university education is valued across the world. We will consider the behaviours and expectations of being a part of an academic community, how we learn from each other, synthesise, and contribute to the collective thoughts of a community, and the importance of acknowledging the work of others.

Hear from students about the expectations they have for their future, share their stories of pride and happiness.

11:30am- 12:45pm Developing your academic voice 

Chair: Andrew Day 
Expert Speaker: Dr Mike Alsford

Your voice is unique, use your time at university to develop your voice through your learning, research, and discussions with academics and students.  

This session will consider the importance of developing your own voice both academically and professionally. We will discuss the significance of authority and trustworthiness in all that we say and do to establish ourselves as reputable and reliable. The current focus will be on how we develop these skills and character traits while at university and the actions and behaviours that can compromise these both during our studies and into future employment. 

12:45-13:30pm Lunch break 

13:30-14:45pm Managing your time; an employer perspective on professional expectations in the workplace 

Chair: Elena Moreno

“The key is in not spending time, but in investing it” – Stephen R. Covey. Managing our resources is vital to a stress free and effective life both academically and professionally and we need time to do this well. In this session company directors, Laura Martin and Jason Plunkett share their views on time-management from an employer’s perspective and highlight some strategies and tools to better organise our time. The session will cover techniques for managing time effectively while discussing the potential impact of letting time run away from us in terms of our personal wellbeing as well as the potential for falling into dangerous and unprofessional shortcuts.
