Find your ‘zone of genius’! Many thanks to our terrific panel guests, at last night’s Futures webinar, this time focussing on Careers in Business and Finance. We were joined by three alumnae: Alex Dickinson (Class of 2002) Executive Director at Willis Re Specialty, Maya Raichoora (Class of 2016) Co-Founder/Managing Director of VIVE Meditation, and Lauren Priddy (Class of 2013) Strategy Lead at National Grid.
It was great to hear their different experiences of working in this very broad sector. The common themes included the need to work hard and be proactive about creating opportunities. Our speakers told students how there is room for everyone in this sector but with career paths becoming increasingly non-linear, authenticity and self-awareness are important to carve out your own niche. Our thanks to the panel for an inspiring evening!
