Making Connections – A BCI workshop for students

BCI Workshop


12th Jan 2021





Life after university can be daunting if you don’t have a clear pathway mapped out. How do you get that all-important work experience to help get your foot on the career ladder? What do you need to do to stand out amongst the competition? And where do you even start when you want to make connections and open up new opportunities?

Recent graduate and former winner of BCI’s Ben Martin Apprentice Award, Marissa Lewis-Peart, will answer these questions and more in our first BCI workshop of 2021. If you’re a student or have recently graduated from a creative industry course, register for your free place.

About the Workshop

Marissa will share her experience of networking and how it landed her 15 industry internships straight out of university and a trip to SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. She’ll impart valuable advice on how to network effectively and help you learn how to build valuable connections. Marissa will set a small task to leave you feeling more confident about networking both online and in-person.
