Dine n Discuss
A career networking event for Notre Dame School's students
On Monday 17th February 2020 in Notre Dame School, Favour John and other 14 young leaders held the Dine n Discuss event. Dine n Discuss is a networking event in which students invited professionals to meet with other students, exchange knowledge and have time talking about career options.
152 students and adults came along to share about their career, ask questions and receive professional career advice. Students had a great chance to meet with professional who are doing jobs that would interest them.
The event had different activities such as Networking Bingo and focused group discussions. There was a timer used so that every 5 minutes a group would move tables and talk to someone else.
Students who attended got useful insights and knowledge about the career path they are interested in. Favour John the leader of Dine n Discuss said that ‘ A friend of mine in year 10 learnt that A-Level Law may not be the best subject choice for her career path and discussed this with a guest that attended the event. Therefore the activity was extremely successful’.
Favour also mentioned that what encouraged her to lead this activity is because the Young Leader Programme is a chance to meet new people and help others. It was a very enjoyable and challenging activity that gave her a valuable chance to lead.
