    It has been a few weeks since Chris and Callum went back to their old stomping grounds at Bournemouth University to give a motivational and targeted talk with a group of the final year students. 
    An overall fantastic experience to go back to our universities to give some insight, hints, tips and tricks to current students regarding strategic thinking and what to expect once you leave the university environment. 
    Our talk involves how we prepared for the talk in-front of 50+ lecturers and students. General feelings around presenting to an audience, our initial nervousness and how we managed to overcome these. What were our goals of the presentation What we talked aboutAnd so much more!

    Overall, we loved it and we're so excited to do more of these talks!
