Trinity 2016 Welcome Back Drinks at Oxford Town Hall
On the 27th of April, Oxford Women in Business (OxWIB) had one of our biggest events to date-Welcome Back Drinks at Town Hall. The event was organised for the purposes of ushering in the start of a new term and celebrating our successes over the past academic year. It was a great success and we achieved a record number of 250 attendees, all of whom truly enjoyed the live jazz band and wine reception. This event gave us the opportunity to showcase our new term card as well as for more students to learn about OxWIB and what we do. Throughout the past year, we have gone from strength to strength, expanding our campus presence through innovative social media marketing campaigns, inviting a diverse range of speakers including renowned blogger and entrepreneur -Rosie Thomas(from ‘The Londoner’ blog) and tech entrepreneur- Anne-Marie Imafidon to speak to our members about their experiences as prominent women in business and last but not least the organising of quality events for members to network with a number of our sponsors including EY, PwC, KPMG, BlackRock, Barclays, Morgan Stanley and Lloyds. This term, we hope to continue our efforts in providing more opportunities for women to engage with various business fields including more niche ones like marketing and journalism. On Wednesday of week 3, we will be organising a garden party and panel discussion with EY representatives, which would be a fantastic opportunity to get to know the firm and its culture; on Thursday we are delighted to have Emma Hogan, the Europe Correspondent for the Economist to come and speak to us about her experiences in the world of journalism after graduating from Cambridge. Lastly, on Thursday of week 4, we are excited to host Annette King, CEO of renowned marketing firm Oglivy & Mather and have her share her experience as top management of an international corporation. We look forward to welcoming you at our events.
