Beyond Ambition: From Passion to Innovation 

Welcome to our Alumni Webinar Series. Each of our short, themed talks turns the spotlight on alumni who have turned their passions and interests into a career.  

Whether it's on a topic you're already interested in or you want to explore a new area, this is your chance to learn from and interact with one of your fellow Nottingham alumni speaking on a subject they're passionate about. 

Our latest webinar


Enlightened Perspectives

It’s an easy cliché that people can fall into one of two groups - those who are logical, focused and analytic and those who are broad-minded and creative. It may have it's appeal, but things aren't as clear cut as this myth would have you believe and the two can work together to benefit each other in so many ways.

We chatted to Louise Emerson (1984), business consultant, coach, and former Cheltenham Festivals' CEO… and graduate in Electrical Engineering.

Original air date: 5 September 2018
