Noa Seror

Being an outgoing and a motivated person with a taste for leadership, I believe to be a suitable candidate to become the Consulting’s society External Relations and Events VP. My personal experiences such as organizing numerous charity events and joining my school’s debate Club and Environment and Economic Committee allow me to say that I am an autonomous person that can take decisions when necessary while confronting everyone's opinions in order to find the best alternative. I could thus be able to organize company events, meet sponsors, speakers and alumni, and work with them.
If I were to be selected as the External Relations and Events VP, I would not only have an immense personal gain, but I would also strive to better the community and provide opportunities for all the members of the consulting society. As a VP, I would have the responsibility to represent the members of the society and be the intermediary between them and professionals in the sectors they are interested in. Being in a period where face-to-face meetings are complicated, I would like to organize online meetings, create forums to allow professionals from all over the world to meet and exchange ideas. As well, the consulting society could promote cooperation with new partners, organize competitions with other universities or society, as well as increase the capacity to meet new companies and sponsors by taking advantage of the members of the society’s contacts in the field

I am thrilled by the opportunity to join the Consulting Society as VP External relations & Events. I would to bring to this role the experience in the field I gained as treasurer of UCL Art Society. In fact, participating in amazing projects such as a joint exhibition with Students for Global Health gave me unique insights into sponsorship seeking, organising events and internal as well as external collaboration.

Being part of the Consulting Society over the past year gave me an understanding of what it does and the strategic fields that could be further explored as a Committee member in a crucial position such as Events and External relations. I strongly believe in seeking feedback and regular polls in order for a Society to meet the needs and the wants of its members. I think the Society is also a great opportunity to meet person that share your interests, and you might not have been able to do so because of the past year situation. Therefore, I would promote networking events and socials among the members. I think there is a lot we can learn from each other, and being remote shouldn't affect that. These would be my priorities if I am elected.

I look forward to the opportunity to join the team.

Adorján Bárány
Hi, my name is Adorjan and I am running for the position of VP External Relations & Events.
I have years of leadership and organisational experience, with a number of events with over 600 participants behind my back. Combined with my love for consulting and aim to bring more professional and informal events to the members of the society, I believe that I am a very strong candidate for this role.
If I am elected, my focus would be threefold:
1. Reforming high-profile events. I not only want to host more case study sessions, networking and speaker events with the most successful firms in consulting, but also organise them in a way that the members of the society have the option to join in-person or online. This hybrid approach allows students who are willing and able to attend physically to have a more personal experience while also maintaining the possibility of joining open to members no matter where they are in the world.
2. Regular socials. I plan on organising frequent informal events, such as quizzes, game nights and other fun activities to help the members connect with their peers and create a more welcoming and supportive environment where the members could help each other out with questions related to studying, internship applications and life at UCL in general.
3. Cooperation with other societies. I plan on working more closely with other societies, inside and outside of UCL and organising socials as well as joint professional events.
Eugene Ng
I have been serving as your First Year Representative as part of the External Relations department for the past year. In my tenure, I have learnt how the society operates through the organisation of events and speakers. I was instrumental in organising online event logistics, and have built professional connections with consultants, which will help secure future sponsorships and events. With these experiences, I am capable of continuing UCLCS' legacy and mentoring next year's members. I am currently working on hosting events with speakers from companies such as McKinsey.

If elected, I will:
1) Host in-person events in rented out restaurants and bars to network with professionals and socialise with other members in a post-pandemic world.
2) Maintain the pace and variety of events shown this year with continued events catering to all skill levels, such as Beginner Sessions and company panels for interview prep.
3) Be receptive to the everchanging needs of the following year's society members to provide events you want.

With these, members of UCLCS of all skill level will stand to benefit from the events the society hosts.

I have past experiences representing peers on student council and as course representative. I also have real-world experiences as a sergeant of the Singapore Armed Forces. If you are just as excited as I am for another year of great events and networking opportunities, I would appreciate your support as your External Relations Vice President.
Anushka Ray
My internship at a Singaporean media company over the summer allowed me to hone skills in client and speaker relations. During this internship, I was tasked with coordinating communications with over 20 speakers for an online webinar, ranging from Managing Directors to High Commissioners and ambassadors. Concurrently, I pitched advertorials for the firm’s monthly publications, developing strategies to organise numerous streams of communication simultaneously. Having worked as a consultant on a five-month project with UCL Consulting Society, I grew more comfortable navigating professional relationships as a student as well as how to effectively pitch ideas. I believe these experiences complement the responsibilities of this role, in the spheres of event and speaker management and communications, as well as in understanding the value of such opportunities and events for students. Having held various leadership roles in high school including captain of the volleyball team, magazine editor, and service group secretary, I have learnt how to adapt to student demands, particularly regarding event planning, and could bring these ideas forward. The nature of this year has allowed for more focus on virtual events at UCL which I hope to galvanise by reaching out to international speakers. I would also encourage more interactive sessions, similar to the case study sessions conducted internally, however conducted alongside a professional in the working sphere.
Omer Bilgin
I believe that a good External Relations & Events VP needs to genuinely enjoy constant interactions with new people, which is why I think I would be a good fit for the role. I know that 'social skills' probably isn't the first thing that comes to people's minds when I tell them I'm a Philosophy student, but I actually have some direct experience working as a Personal Relations Ambassador (promoter) at a Mayfair nightclub, as well as years of teamworking experience gained from regular participation in drama productions (including multiple performances at the Edinburgh Fringe). So, were I to be elected, my priority would be utilizing my existing interpersonal and communication skills to reach out to speakers that actually excite me, since I think such an internal 'interest test' would be vital in ensuring that each speaker brings real value to members.

I would specifically try to capitalise on the fact that many people are now working online from home, which means that there is a much broader range of speakers to choose from. After all, borders (in a way) are non-existent right now. Having lived in three countries throughout my upbringing, I believe I could find inspiring speakers from all around the globe. Such a focus on diversity would definitely be one of my priorities when arranging speakers and organizing events, and I think a good place to start would be getting in contact with UCL and other university alumni, as well as alumni from my previous schools.
