Business and Entrepreneurship - a Reggae Story!

For those of you who like the idea of keeping in touch with the cutting edge of business development, please note that the Judge Business School of Cambridge University is due to begin its "Enterprise Tuesday" Lecture Series again on 20th January. The first speaker will be Levi Roots, last seen on "Dragons Den" trying to convince the Dragons to back his idea of Reggae Reggae Sauce!

Levi's talk will be about, "When do you pursue an opportunity and when do you decide not to? The role of intuition versus cold analytical decision making will be explored".

For a direct link for information about the lectures, click on and select the more icon in the left hand column of the section headed Enterprise Tuesday.

If you would like to attend this lecture, or any of the others on the timetable, then please note that they are FREE, however you must register online in order to attend. Registration needs to be done only the once and to do this you should go to the top of the Enterprise Tuesday page and follow the instructions in the left hand column, clicking where it says, "How to register".

We hope you enjoy the show!

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year, from the Careers Department.

You are back! You have survived the excesses of the festive period, and now it's time to put all your hard work into action. For some, it is about exams, for others, it's all about starting the New Year with a strong and positive attitude. Remember, we are here to help, no matter what stage of thinking you are at...even if you haven't started to think about the future at all!!

Just come on down at any time to the Department on C Corridor to use our resources, or arrange an interview with a Personal Adviser. Perhaps you have a short question, or thoughts about Work Experience? Whatever your need, if it's Careers related, we'll do our best to help you.

See you soon, Andy Goodwin, Careers Manager
