Free lectures on sci-tech employability: Thursdays from 26 January
'Empowered Employability' is a free, nine-week lecture course, which covers good business practice with a focus on science entrepreneurship. The first talk, on 'Business basics', is on Thursday 26 January 2012 at 5.30pm, and will be followed by a free drinks reception.
Lectures take place on Thursday evenings in the McCrum Lecture Theatre, Corpus Christi College. Each lecture will run from 5.30 to 6.30pm and will be followed by a drinks reception from 6.30 to 7.30pm.
The programme has been organised by the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education. Lectures are aimed at those from science and technology businesses and research organisations, as well as Cambridge University students, post-doctoral researchers and staff.
Talks have been designed around technological enterprise but most material will be relevant to general business practice and employability, with topics ranging from intellectual property to people management. The lectures will enable you to:
- learn the basics of how a technology business forms and grows
- become more employable
- mix regularly with people from Cambridge’s science and technology cluster.
A certificate of attendance may be issued to those who attend the full lecture series. Booking is recommended as places are limited.
