SLA Europe is proud to present an evening of talks kindly hosted by UCL Department of Information Studies. Aimed at students and new professionals we will be asking nine information professionals to share their wisdom and experience in short focused presentations.

These ten minute talks will aim to give insights into the current role/career story of speakers from a variety of sectors and to share career advice for students and new professionals. Speakers range from senior professionals to new professionals in the field and include winners of SLA’s Early Career Conference Award.

The event will include free drinks and nibbles, kindly sponsored by CB Resourcing and an opportunity to network with the speakers and fellow attendees.

We’ll aim to gather at 18.15 for an 18.30 start.
