The Senior School is hosting a lunchtime “Pro Speaker” series in January and February. This week, Joanne Sweeney, a skilled broadcast journalist, PR practitioner, author, speaker, expert digital marketer and Google trainer, skyped in from Ireland to talk to students about her career path. She gave students advice, advising them to trust their gut instinct and persevere. “Your first lesson for today,” she said, “don’t ever worry about the ‘how-to'... you will always figure out the ‘how-to’ if you have an ambition or a dream. Hold onto it and don’t let anybody break your spirit.”
Next in the Pro Speaker series was Michelle Mezei. Michelle works as a neuromuscular neurologist at Vancouver General Hospital and the Division of Neurology at UBC. She visited campus to talk to students about her career path and her experience in the field of medicine.
