Professor Bela Arora, MSc Global Governance course leader, welcomed guests to Cardiff Bay for an evening of networking, nostalgia and Awards - and to celebrate the successful completion of the Global Governance degree course's 4th year.
As friends of the course; the Rt. Hon Lord Peter Hain delivered the keynote address and Chief Superintendent Paul Griffiths, President of The Police Superintendents' Association, provided words of inspiration and helped present the Impact Awards later in the evening.
Speaking of the evening, Professor Arora added: "Our inaugural alumni Awards event has been the perfect opportunity to bring together current and prospective members of our community. There is a strong golden thread that runs through our cohorts, whether it's association through family members or recommendation through professional networks. Alumni are a vital part of sharing the transformative impact of our course and friendliness of our community - not least today when our course celebrates being the number 1 recruiting course in our subject area nationally!"
The Global Governance ‘Impact Awards’ were awarded in recognition of the achievements of students who have made a positive contribution to the communities around them. The Awards highlighted those who had transferred knowledge into action, to improve the lives of others.
I am proud to see that you have all gone on to take on roles that are not just making an impact on the organisations for whom you work, but are helping shape the world around us. You are becoming an incredible community of change makers. Professor Bela Arora, MSc Global Governance Course Leader
