Leo Zimmermann
Having seen the tremendous job that was done by the committee last year, being part of it, I am committed to continuing their work, not only because I am Austrian myself, but because I firmly believe that the experiences, friendships and opportunities that arise from this society are uniquely valuable.
Firstly, as most of us have been confined indoors for the past year, it will be my number one priority to host regular in-person social events and parties (with lots of food and drinks!), invite prominent speakers and even organise a ball, once these are possible. I will organise different kinds of events related to Austrian culture, making sure that there’s something fun and interesting for everyone, regardless of whether you are Austrian and speak German, or not.
Secondly, I will make it my priority to extend the Austrian Society’s reach beyond UCL, by establishing partnerships with other Austrian institutions in London, to provide our members with unique, real-world networking opportunities, something which might even help for one’s future career.
Thirdly, while the tightly knit community of Austrian Society members is something special on its own, I aim to enlarge the society’s reach at UCL by participating in larger projects and by collaborating with other like-minded societies.
