WILS takes Bright Network's HQ.
Myself and Maya attended the Bright Network's President evening last Wednesday. This took place at their office in London, as was attended by representatives from over 70 societies. We heard from the CEO and Co-founder of the Bright Network, James Uffindell, and gained invaluable advice on how to get the most of leading our society and help members with their careers. Both myself and Maya are hoping to implement this advice over the next academic year.
Additionally, we had the opportunity to network with other Bright Network employees, and gained advice on how to market WILS on social media. We also met lots of ambitious committees from universities across the UK, but also other committee members from Leeds, such as the African Caribbean Society.
Finally, after seeing all the amazing work the Bright Network does, Maya set up a meeting with them to discuss becoming a partner society, and I am delighted to announce that WILS will be joining the Bright Network as a partner society!
