With a global pandemic changing so much about how we live and work, it's even more important for us to come together and help each other as much as we can. Attend LiveAlumni Talks to learn from your peers at other colleges and universities.


HOW IT WORKS: Each Talk will feature a guest host from a different College or University to lead a discussion with an open question format. The topic will center around the host’s particular expertise in the Higher Ed sector. Up to 20 people can attend the discussion which will be based around the questions submitted at registration and during the live session.

INTERESTED IN SPEAKING? We'd love to help you share your knowledge and experiences with your peers at other institutions. If you're interested in taking part in a Talk, get in touch to learn more.
