GSM London Horizon Awards Ceremony 2017
On Thursday 27th July I was kindly invited to attend the GSM London Horizon Award Ceremony, at the Goldsmiths’ Centre, Farringdon in London as one of the guest businesses.
The purpose of the Horizon Award is that it brings an extra dimension to their graduate’s qualifications. As we all know a degree alone by no means guarantees a job at the end of it these days. The program is also designed to enrich their graduates’ personal development and demonstrate to future employers the breadth of their learning experience.
This certainly seemed the case with the award winners I spoke to on the day. Their ideas for the future were really taking shape, putting plans in place right now for when they graduate with their degrees next year. I would have loved to bottle their commitment, passion, drive and positivity. So very well done to all the graduates, you should be very proud of yourselves you are very worthy winners.
The Keynote speaker included Sir Simon Hughes (Deputy Leader of the Lib Dems from 2010-2014), who delivered a rousing speech on social mobility. This was followed by Pro-Provost Bob Atwal and student speaker Kate Ajomiwe, who discussed the benefits of the award, how it’s enriched her education experience and her plans for the future.
So thank you to the GSM London organisers, Chloe Johnstone (Skills Award Coordinator) and Andrew Falconer (Director of Careers and Employability) for inviting me. A great day was had by all.
Btw - Loved the keepsake booklet to remind me of the day.
I wish you all great success!
