Urban Synergy Role Model Seminar 2017
Urban Synergy’s ‘Tips to the Top’ Role Model seminar is one of the highlights of the academic year at Christ the King. The annual cross-site event, which features a panel discussion and speed mentoring sessions, inspires confidence in young people and gives them an opportunity to interact with leading industry professionals.
Discussions of this kind not only broaden student horizons but also provide a valuable insight into the qualities of academic and professional success.
This year the event was attended by over 150 students from across our three sites. The initial panel discussion was hosted by Sue Watson, Director Of Caatalyst Uk ltd, and we were fortunate enough to welcome the following panellists:
- Nonoso Anozie — Actor (Game of Thrones)
- Ernestina Agyei — Marketing Manager (Barclays)
- Shevonne Bramley — Recruiter (RAF)
- Troy Von Sheinbar—TV Magician/ Entertainer (former CTK student)
During the session, panellists explained their personal journeys and outlined how they achieved their goals. This was followed by an insightful Q&A session in which students addressed personal questions to the members of the panel.
The second part of the evening saw professionals from the worlds of banking, medicine, technology, fashion, politics, construction, law, teaching and research-based professions take part in a speed mentoring session with the students.
