Ya-Hsuan Wang
Being a first-year student studying Economics and Statistics, I would like to devote myself to UCL Guild Society as the Head of Outreach & Events.

Being an account manager at Uber enterprise, I was allowed to utilise my business analysis skill with the well-presented communication strategies when serving as a project leader in the onshore project in Taiwan. I am excelled in communicating with the clients as well as maintaining the long-term relationship with our external partners.

Furthermore, I am the main manager of a volunteering project called UCLef. It is crucial for me creating new partnerships and maintaining the relationships between the external partnered organisations, connecting and contacting members throughout the academic term, and the improvement and implementation of standard operating strategies in order to progress our organisation steadily.

Overall, I am keen to communicate with teammates and enjoy the sense of accomplishment when completing the tasks with the team. I would like to maintain the excellence of previous events and activities but meanwhile innovate and improve them through the functional performance assessment and the brainstorming of the team.

My communication and leadership skills obtained from the previous experience have equipped me for being competent for this role.I would like to commit to the society using my professional knowledge. If you also want to take a leap, please vote for me.
Aleksandra Walczak
Hi everyone!

My name is Aleksandra and I have decided to run for the position of the Head of Outreach & Events.
One of the main reasons why I think I will be a good fit for the role is the significant prior outreach experience I have gained this year while working as the outreach director for the UCL United Nations Association. I was responsible for coordinating multiple projects and outreach activities at once, such as spearheading the volunteering project and establishing a dialogue platform with other British universities. I am convinced that my experience in organising events, securing a wide range of diverse partnerships and maintaining relationships with other societies will help me fulfil my responsibilities, should I be elected.
Moreover, I believe that I have developed good social skills, an outgoing, positive personality and an ability to work efficiently in a big team while keeping track of the work of multiple people. Outreach has always been immensely rewarding and satisfying to me, being able to make a positive change and a real impact is something I have cherished the most in my work.

This year has been challenging and often alienating for everyone. If I am elected my priorities will include improving the membership base, ensuring that members have a wide array of engaging events to choose from and plenty of opportunities to socialise. Moreover, I will aim to organise social events strengthening the alliance between the five Guild partner societies.
Lorenzo Tendron
Hi guys! I’m Lorenzo, ESPS student! I strongly believe I fit this role, as I gained transferable skills as remote head of events this year for the diplomacy society and am looking forward to invite even more speakers for guild IN-PERSON!☺
I proposed new types of events that stretched strict diplomatic events. Never before had we a counterterrorist consultant disclosing his intelligence missions to UCL students. This proves I will set no barriers for a greater guild society.
Aim N°1 ? Propose more dynamic career events with a monthly scheme. An example would be: first week, focus on entrepreneurship. Second: focus on social enterprises. Third: focus on consultancy. Fourth: focus on finance. We'd propose a social feedback aperitif at the end of the month to energise both community and committee.
What has been most valuable? What can we do better? What is achievable? With online polls the following week for those unable to attend to make feedback valuable. Month 2 would be dedicated to relevant alternatives, meeting every 4 weeks for feedback. For PhD & Ms students, the creation of a special society channel to reach out to particular speakers for their research will be a priority.
What about curious 1st and 2nd-years? Masterclasses' ads with speakers' live teasers would be posted once a month with eager 1st-year reps relaying on campus. This way we can empower those who feel inexperienced.
Together let's unite our enthusiastic community to a connected committee!☺
Shavak Matalia
Hi guys - I’m Shavak and I’m running to be your next Head of Outreach & Events.

My membership of UCL’s career societies over the past year has provided me with a clear vision of the opportunities for greater synergies via deeper inter-society collaboration. My central tenet will be to maximise the engagement of UCL students and alumni with our affiliated career societies. I endeavour to pursue this by approaching new corporate sponsors with fresh opportunities for outreach.

Studying economics for my degree and writing for the UCL Economic Tribune has fostered my communication skills. Moreover, I have a keen sense of responsibility, creativity and enthusiasm. Altogether, I am confident these qualities me a fantastic fit for this position.

I very much look forward to the prospect of serving you at the society in the coming term!
