Michaelmas 2014 Welcome Drinks

Last night OxWIB hosted our Welcome Drinks, an opportunity to enjoy delicious cocktails whilst socialising with the committee and generally learning more about the society. Despite term (and its associated pressures) being in full swing, House Bar was full of some of Oxford’s brightest young students, which was really great to see. Plus, with goodies such as OxWIB mugs and stationery, no one left empty handed! Our Welcome Cocktails are just one of many events being held by OxWIB this term.

On the 23rd October, OxWib were privileged to welcome Lee Chalmers, a reputed leadership consultant, to talk at Brasenose College. Lee is currently a life coach, and is employed by clients ranging from top businesses to powerful individuals, whether they are feeling unfulfilled in life or are seeking leadership training. However, while Lee’s talk described her career path and the challenges along the way, she also shared her views on the roles of women in business and politics, online abuse and where she sees herself in ten years time. Always put yourself forward for things A central theme of Lee’s talk was the ways in which we, in both our daily lives and careers, hold ourselves back.
