Last time we met we were both speaking at the Business School’s Global Advantage Networking Event in Newcastle upon Tyne in March 2013.
Our next major alumni event in London will see 3 of our highest achieving alumni in an ‘open mic’ Q&A session on 24 October. If you are interested in attending and learning from their success stories or in joining any other alumni network events in the capital connect with us here:

“Second Thursday” is the monthly networking event for Newcastle University Business School London Alumni and their guests. Sign up. Turn up. Join in.
Join me at “Second Thursday” – every Second Thursday of the month, we’ll be meeting for open networking at 7.30pm for 8.00pm in All Bar One on Finsbury Pavement, just up from Moorgate Tube.
The event is for Alumni of Newcastle University Business School and their guests. The first of these monthly Second Thursday meetings will be on Thursday 12 July. We’ve already got a fascinating combination of members – spanning the worlds of finance, marketing, law, writing, translation and fashion brands.
It’s very informal. No foolish games and we’re more about ‘connecting people than collecting business cards.’
So come as you are, suit or jeans. Just sign up, turn up and join in.
Our principle is based on the idea of “The Strength of Weak Ties” – the true secret to effective networking – in a nutshell, that means the more new acquaintances you add to your social and business network the more opportunities you’ll create for yourself. If more people know what you do, they can refer business and connections in your direction. In short, everyone who is there is interested in what they can do to help you and what you may be able to do to help them.
Date: EVERY “Second Thursday” of the month. – starting 12 July 2012
Time: 7.30pm for 8.00pm start
Venue: All Bar One: 127 Finsbury Pavement, EC2A 1NS – just up from Moorgate Tube
Drinks: Everyone gets their own and, if you like, join us for a meal in a nearby restaurant later on.

As Chairman of the London Branch of the Newcastle University Business School Alumni, I’m excited to attend a rather special event this week. Newcastle University have somehow managed to secure space in the diary of a rather busy man: Chris Townsend is a Newcastle University graduate (’74) and Commercial Director of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG).
On Wednesday 18 April he’s addressing the University Alumni at the St Pancras Grand. I for one am looking forward to the stories he’ll be sharing of the makings of The Greatest Show on Earth. If his material is anything like this answer, we’re in for a treat…
Chris was asked what advice he would give to a Business School student or alumnus hoping for an [..]
