3rd Annual South West Region Student Presentations Evening

South West Region
Date19 April 2016
Time18:00 - 21:00
VenuePortland Sq, Plymouth University, PL4 8AA

Investing in the right people is a key component of business success and identifying the best graduates from those entering our industry can often be very challenging. Following the huge success of the Region's first two Student Presentations Evenings this year's event is another fantastic opportunity for those companies looking to recruit undergraduate and post-graduate students currently nearing the end of their studies to witness presentation skills, technical proficiency, confidence and professional capability.

The student Presentations Evening, in Plymouth University's Devonport Lecture Theatre, Portland Square, also showcases the projects and dissertation studies the students are undertaking and provides an ideal forum to offer advice or even practical assistance.

The event will begin with a Keynote speech by Dr Travis Mason followed by a series of short presentations, with Q&A limited to 10 minutes per presenter. Light refreshments will be provided around 7.30pm and an award for the best presentation will then be announced at the end of the event. 

For those wanting to socialise after the event, we will then proceed to the nearby Roundabout Pub finishing at around midnight.

Presentation titles include:
