The full Programme

  • Business strategy
    Strategy comes first; all other aspects of business will follow. In business, understanding and responding to strategic issues and opportunities always involves decision-making. Leaders and managers must understand strategy for effective decision-making, and therefore their ability to analyse, formulate and implement good strategy is critical for overall organisational growth and success. We all need strategy either at individual or professional level, so this session is for anyone who wants to have a successful future.

  • Engineering faculty tour
    In the last 3 years, the School of Engineering at UEA has expanded following a significant £7.4 million investment to develop Productivity East – a regional hub for engineering, technology and management. On this tour, we will introduce our new state of the art facilities and the expertise within the faculty by demonstrating how undergraduate students access them through lectures, tutorials and via exciting and diverse project work.

  • Politics: Focus on political parties
    'Why did Nan vote for Boris?' In this discussion, Dr Eitan Tzelgov will argue that politics is much more interesting than football because the party never stops! Parties are always fighting for our votes, using different spins, strategies, and calculations. But, why do they bother if Nana always votes for the Tories? We will talk about parties in the UK but also about trends in party politics outside that we can learn from.
