OA Career Networking Event: Law, Finance and Consultancy

Feedback has been extremely positive on the OA Club's law, finance and consultancy networking event held at the offices of Allen & Overy in the heart of the vibrant Spitalfields market area.

The OA Club and Abingdon School are incredibly grateful to the many OAs who offer their time and career advice to current pupils. This event however was specifically for the benefit of OAs.

Kindly hosted by Peter Watson (OA 1974), seasoned professionals and university students appreciated the opportunity to build connections and expand professional networks and the evening included insightful speeches from Peter and Simon Hills (1975) on the implications of Brexit for law and financial services.  

 

Comments received from attendees included:

"The organisation itself was fantastic - guest list, badges, drinks and canapes ... the venue was very suitable and lent an air of professionalism." 

"This event came at the perfect time for me.  I’m in consultancy and thinking about moving over to finance and so found it the perfect safe environment to ask those basic questions you may be scared to ask at a more formal networking event."

Sincere thanks go to Peter and Allen & Overy for providing the Club with a superb venue for this inaugural event.
