2. Sharing things - write for the blog

We decided to launch the Sharing things blog because we want to better understand who our alumni, staff and students are. Not just professionally or academically, but the other bits too. The realities of life, especially now. If you're interested in writing for the blog and offering a snapshot of your life get in touch with Sonia, the editor, for more details.

3. Fresh Ideas Festival

Ideas excite us. They shape the future, add value, and influence change. Join us throughout August to hear from public figures, journalists, commentators, and more on the subjects of public leadership, entrepreneurship, education, ethics, inclusion, diversity and sustainability, and their fresh ideas for the times we're living in.
