Careers Symposium 2016 – ‘Seizing the Opportunity’ 

Over 75 OCs, parents and Friends attended this year’s Canford Careers Symposium – titled ‘Seizing the Opportunity’ – on Friday 18th March.  Now in its 13th year, the aim of the annual event is to help pupils prepare for life after Canford and entry into the world of work.  The day started with engaging keynote speeches by engineer Tim Allen, financier Phillip Paige and businesswoman Lara Morgan, followed by panel discussions for pupils with representatives from 16 different industry areas including Armed Forces, Business, Creative, Entrepreneurship and Marketing. 

The day concluded with pupils taking part in a ‘speed-dating’ style one-to-one networking session to find out more about particular industries from individual speakers.    The symposium provided pupils with an excellent overview and insight into various career options whilst also enabling them to practice the valuable skill of networking.
