The Merging NepSocs movement marked a new milestone with their first ever networking event at the SOAS University in London. The movement has brought together 40+ Nepali Societies from UK universities under one umbrella, making it fast and easy for students and societies to collaborate and connect. The first networking event encouraged post-graduates and young professionals to attend and meet one another.
The networking event had a panel consisting of Navin Singh Khadka – the environment correspondent of BBC World Service, Abhijay Jain – Private Equity Deals Tax Leader & Tax Partner at PwC UK and Dr Sujan Rajbhandari – senior lecturer, school of computing, electronics and mathematics at the Coventry University. The panelists’ talk touched on their journey to where they are, the challenges and inspiration to get going.
The talk was followed by a networking activity and an ideas generation session which put the audience in charge of being creative! You guessed it, they were asked to generate ideas about what else Merging NepSocs could do in the future. This session was followed by an open Q&A session with the Merging NepSocs committee.
The Merging NepSocs second Talent Show will take place on 16th March in Leicester.
