Top speakers at CIOB’s first global Student Festival

Delegates hear from industry leaders at virtual event

The CIOB ran its first Student Festival in April, a two-day virtual opportunity for student members across the globe to celebrate being a part of the student body at CIOB.
The event was designed to help student members build their knowledge of the built environment sector, develop skills and sector know-how, and take away top tips to excel and succeed in their future career.

Delegates heard from high-profile key speakers including CIOB president and vice-president, past presidents and the first ever CIOB Rising Star award winners Kelly Attwood and Vasiliki Bowler.

The event also included talks from leading academics at the University of Bolton and Sheffield Hallam University as well as past Global Student Challenge winners. 

Employers from across the globe discussed the skills and mindsets the construction market demands of graduates, as well as how to maximise employability tools such as LinkedIn. Other sessions included career development tips.
