Joe McIntyre (Reeves 2014-19) was one of the attendees at the event held on Tuesday 31 January. He writes:
Current and former pupils, parents, and teachers at Eastbourne College all gathered at the PwC building in London, overlooking Tower Bridge, for the annual banking, broking and asset management networking event. It was great to see the event attended by all generations of the Eastbournian Society, with pupils, university graduates and young professionals eager to speak to other ES members about how to navigate the highly competitive finance industry.
David Clark, parent of former pupils and a director-level professional in many facets of the industry, generously took the time to be our guest speaker for the evening. While sharing his path to becoming a top industry expert, David answered a plethora of questions from the audience and gave invaluable advice to younger generations. He stressed the importance of decisiveness, emphasized a real need for people skills in the industry and showed that the qualities held by Eastbournians are transferable into the working world.
Many thanks to Darren Meek (Blackwater 1982-87) for hosting this event for the ninth consecutive year (!) and to Sam Wicks (Powell 2005-10) and Development Director Emma Garrett (Nugent 1984-86) for organising another great occasion. This has grown from strength to strength each year - with hopefully more to follow in the future.
