LSBU project management students network with industry leaders
03 April 2014
Four outstanding LSBU
project management students were invited to attend the Young Rail Professionals
annual black-tie dinner and awards ceremony last week, a fantastic opportunity
to rub shoulders with industry executives.
LSBU students Nurudeen Arasi, Adewale Salawu, Mohammed Hasan
Salim and Cosmo Laing were invited by CPC Project Services to their graduate
table at the annual black-tie event.
CPC is the lead sponsor of this year's dinner for more than
480 people—providing a chance for the four students to meet and mingle with execs
in the transport sector. Industry leaders in attendance included Mike Brown, managing
director of London Underground, and Steve Mole, managing partner of CPC.
"Being able to rub shoulders and dine with the biggest names
in project management of infrastructure in London and TfL managing director Mike
Brown was an opportunity I didn't want to miss," commented second-year BSc (Hons) Construction Management student Hasan Salim.
Young Rail Professionals was founded in 2009 to help new
talent further careers in rail and the dinner was held in the prestigious Grand
Connaught Rooms in London's Covent Garden.
