It's great to be able to give back to the network in this way. The people I met through networking helped me when I was first starting out, so to share top tips of how best to get ahead, is the least I can do!

Over 100 alumni registered to attend the Alumni Treforest-based networking event last night, with guests enjoying a seasonal mince pie and a chance to reconnect with like-minded graduates from across the region.

'Festive networking' was the opportunity to not only hear the latest from the Alumni Relations Team, but also for guests to connect with invited USW entrepreneurs. 

We were delighted to welcome Gemma Hallett (PGCE, 2008) founder of the miFuture GroupMaciej Kaprzyk & Karina Sudenyte (LLM and BA (Hons) Business Management students respectively) founders of The Juice Premium and Lesley Owen (PG Dip in Entrepreneurship Practice, 2015) and Helen Walbey (PG Dip in Entrepreneurship Practice) , who were on hand to promote 'Women Create'.

Guests represented a broad spectrum of sectors and we were delighted to welcome a number of freelance creative, legal and marcomms professionals, as well as alumni working in businesses including: Penn PharmaPeoplePlusVeezu, CGISSERCT County Borough Counciljamjar PR and Ty Hafan.

A great start to the festive season, we look forward to welcoming alumni to future networking events! Check out photographs from the evening below.
