Free online peer-coaching training for creative women
University of Brighton alumna Beki Gowing is offering a free three-week online course. It’s for creative women who are working for themselves, freelancing or starting a business – or thinking about doing any of these things.
This online training will teach you the tools and techniques to set achievable goals, reflect on possible solutions, understand how you work best, and support other creative women facing the same issues.
It is all conducted online using video conferencing software, so can fit around your other commitments.
The training runs between Monday 2 March and Sunday 22 March. You’ll need to spend about 8 hours over the 3 weeks on the course (for the training, group practice sessions, and individual homework tasks).
Beepurplers are invited to the University of Brighton’s Engineering Project Exhibition. It takes place on Wednesday 19 February (2.00–6.00pm) in the Advanced Engineering Building, University of Brighton, Lewes Road.
Each student will present their work on a poster and will welcome the opportunity to answer questions and provide detailed information about their projects.
Many projects are industry or research-based and cover a wide range of disciplines, ranging through all aspects of engineering: automotive, aeronautical, mechanical and manufacturing, electrical and electronic.
“Let our students inspire you whilst you inspire them” says organiser Rebecca Tongue. For more information and to reserve your place, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have an idea for a new product, service or community project? The Santander University of Brighton Ideas Competition is your chance to make it happen.
Even if you entered last time and did not get selected, we encourage you to enter again. There are two new questions, giving you a further opportunity to explain your idea and convince the judges you’re the best person to take it forward.
There are top prizes of £1500, £1000 and £500 available to win. There are also four runners-up prizes of £100.
Shortlisted entries will be invited to pitch their ideas to judges at a city centre final on Wednesday 18 March 2020. Whether you are a team or an individual, you will receive expert pitching training in advance.
You can enter as many different ideas as you wish, but you must write one application form per idea. Your idea can only be for new products, services, or community projects, ie not for ventures you have already started up.
This competition is open to all students and recent graduates of the university (within the last three years).
