The step from student to professional can be a daunting one, but what can be done to bridge the gap? This month we have Matt Sear as our guest speaker, a recent UOG graduate, who will share his exciting journey of setting up his media agency Sear Media Group. Matt will share his insights into starting up as a student, including things that haven’t gone so well, and his lucky big breaks!

Matt will cover:

– How to articulate your worth to clients

– Combating imposter syndrome

– The importance of networking

– The advantages young people have.



We will also hear from Lizzie Smith, Head of the Ingenuity Programme. Ingenuity offers investment and specialist mentoring for creating a start-up that generates sustainable impact  The programme is open to everyone, no matter their background or experience. By taking part, you’ll…

  • Gain an understanding of the key social and environmental issues to develop your business ideas.
