‘Navigating industry and career challenges in a fast-paced world’ was the theme for a special alumni panel event in New York in October.

Hosted by the School, the panel event was attended by alumni, corporate partners and industry contacts in the city, with great opportunities for networking for all who attended.

With a strong panel chaired by Mark McSherry (MBA 2001), Editor of the Scottish Business Review, the event featured lively discussion and debate on topics such as diversity and how to stay competitive in your marketplace.

We are grateful to our wonderful panellists for volunteering their time and expertise to support what was a very successful event. They were:

  • Olive Darragh (BCom 1985) Founder and CEO of Zolio Inc
  • Pavle Sabic (MSc 2007) Head of Market Development at S&P Global Market Intelligence
  • Ashley Bendell (BCom 1999) District Manager, Majors Accounts ADP
  • Dr Allison Schrager (MA(H) Economics 2000, Columnist at Quartz
