Professional Network events are designed to provide alumni who have an interest in a particular industry or career-related question an opportunity  to network in a professional setting. By speaking as a panelist at such an event, you’ll enable us to continue providing these valuable opportunities to our students, graduates and senior alumni. 

Inspire others

Whichever stage of your career you’re at, you can help others benefit from the valuable experience you’ve gained along your chosen path. You can inspire fellow alumni and current students with tips and insights on accessing your specific industry, or offer guidance on taking the next steps – whether that’s progressing a career or setting up a business. Alternatively, give your gift of time and talent a truly global reach by taking part in one of our hugely popular online events. This event series supplements and enhances our face-to-face Professional Network series, enabling alumni to access your insights from anywhere in the world.

A typical format is a brief talk or panel discussion, followed by a question and answer session which gives our audience the opportunity to quiz our panellists. 


  • Events usually take place on a weekday evening, from 6pm to 8.30pm.
  • Online events can take place at any time to suit you.
  • Time commitment: Half an hour to an hour to prepare and two hours of your time on the day of the event.
