Description

How to turn obstacles into opportunities

Tuesday 2 March, 6pm GMT
Microsoft Teams Live

When the world changes, through events such as the 2008 financial crash and 2020 pandemic, we are shown how uncertain the job market can be. Whether you’re trying to secure your first job, making a change in career or have been made redundant, the feelings of frustration and rejection can cause you to wonder if you’ll ever reach your goals. Join alumnus Mark Evans as he shares top tips on how to navigate these obstacles and continue moving your career forwards during changing times.

Our speaker
Mark graduated from the University in 1995 with a degree in economics. Since graduating, he has held many roles and today sits on the Executive Committee of Direct Line Group as the Managing Director for Marketing and Digital and on the Board of the Direct Line Group Legal Services. Mark has faced his share of obstacles, being made redundant four times (including from a graduate job he hadn’t even started), but has always managed to turn the obstacles he has faced into opportunities.
