“It was a great evening, thank you for organising it. The panel was interesting and varied as were all of the attendees! Please keep me in the loop for other similar events.” Cosmo Fisher, Old Dragon
“Many thanks for arranging the networking event, it was most enjoyable.” Nicholas Iles, current parent
“ I had no idea what job to do and at that time the Dragon held a networking event for Insurance. Afterwards, I was put in touch with the speakers who met me for a coffee in London. Soon I was wandering around Lloyd’s on work experience and during a fantastic few weeks I emailed every underwriter I met. I’m now training to be one and I’m loving it.” Alistair Blundy, Old Dragon
“Our son found the evening to be an extremely useful and gentle way of starting out on what will no doubt be a lifetime of networking! He made some useful contacts as well as reconnecting with ODs.” Clare Bonnefous, former parent
“I had a great time at the event. It was the first careers event I've been to where it wasn't a "two way sell". Hearing such a broad range of speakers talk honestly about the paths they had taken, including things that had gone wrong, was extremely informative. The shared experience of the Dragon made it easy to ask questions and I am now in contact with several people I met that evening, which will hopefully lead to some work experience!” Madeleine Van Oss, Old Dragon
