Date: Tues 19 Nov 2013 Timings:

Are employers looking for skills and behaviours more than knowledge from todays graduates?
What is this about? Employer expectations and graduate skills - is there a mismatch or not? What are employers looking for that universities are not providing? How well do graduates think they were prepared for the world of work? With the exception of discipline-specific skills, is it even the role of a university to prepare graduates for the world of work? This is a subject that affects everyone in business: it affects you. Event Format Future Forum is based on the Gurteen Knowledge Caf process, developed by David Gurteen. Networking over refreshments and light buffet Short welcome from HTC Introduction of topic Participants discuss their views, changing tables every 10 15 minutes Members share actionable insights if they wish, during a final whole-room discussion No table leaders and no feedback what people take away with them will be particular to their own experience, their situation, and what they want to get out of the evening No summarisiation, and no attempt to reach a consensus No-one is forced to do anything, its okay to go off topic, and its okay simply to listen
