The Society has launched a new webinar series to help geography students explore future career options. In the Use geography sessions, geographers from across a range of sectors share some of the many possibilities studying geography can lead to. In each 45 minute session, they explain how and why they pursued their chosen career, before sharing advice for anyone wanting to take their first steps in that sector.
Our first session focused on careers in risk management and insurance, and featured three of the founding members of the Society’s new Professional Practice Group on Risk Management and Disaster Reduction: Tina Thomson (Willis Towers Watson), William Forde (CoreLogic) and Richard Teeuw (University of Portsmouth). If you missed it or any of our other sessions to date, you can catch up at any time via our website where you’ll also find a range of other useful resources on each sector.
To find out which sectors we’ll be exploring soon, and to sign up for upcoming sessions, visit our What’s On page.
