That’s a wrap on Day 2!
Today's theme was all about Your Future; highlighting some of the key Graduate+ resources available to help you prepare for your future, identify your core skills, learn new ones and develop a strong, stand out CV. We were extremely lucky to be joined by not one, but two of our Grad+ faves for our special guest features today; and as with each day this week, we shared inspirational BCU student and alumni stories linking to the ‘Your Future’ theme, as well as a daily appearance from another favourite of ours, Andy Woodall.

Spoilt for choice with today’s speaker line-up?
Call us generous, but today we’ve really packed a punch with our guest speakers!
First we heard from Birmingham leader, businessman and professional speaker, Joel Blake OBE speaking exclusively to BCU students on ‘Finding Your Why’.
Clara Wilcox of The Balance Collective then stepped in giving us some great insight into her career coaching speciality – creating a good work/life balance.
And finally, Andy Woodall founder of One Degree Difference, gave us a mini-talk on how we can all develop more resilience.
