Business Networking & Sharing "Transitions", July 2022

MSEAA organised the first in-person networking event since COVID-19. We had seen quite a number of changes during these past couple of years, especially around transition of industries i.e., academia to industry/ civil service, manufacturing to business development, research to entrepreneurship and more.

Through the event, we hoped to help our fellow alumnus chart through these waters by seeking the experiences from the very people who have gone before us. It was largely an informal event held on the 30th July, Saturday from 930am-1130am, which consisted of a short 45mins fireside chat sharing from the speakers followed by Q&A and free-and-easy networking to the end.
