“I felt a bit demotivated until I found out about the FutureRising event, it helped me find out what it was like to work in marketing and realise what I wanted to do. On the day, I worked with an employer who later invited me to do an interview and I have now joined that company. It's all thanks to attending the FutureRising event, I would recommend it to anyone.”
— Emma Recknell, Psychology & Philosophy Student,
“Without FutureRising I would have played by the book, settled into the crowd and ignored any opportunity to get myself heard. FutureRising taught me how to talk to companies, be myself and outshine the competition.”
— Stephanie Bradshaw, Advertising Student,
“FutureRising understand that, for students, inspiration is as important as practical knowledge. I have learnt a lot from attending their seminars, workshops and talks.”
— Jeremy Garner, Creative Consultant, Orange Digital
“In working with FutureRising, we have found a partner that understands and shares our vision of investing in new generations. Their knowledge and skill at connecting organisations to graduate communities is second to none.”
— James Weller, Head of Talent, Mavens of London
“FutureRising bought a range of professionals from different organisations and backgrounds. The interactive part of the afternoon was especially popular with students who got to grips with a brief, presented their ideas and got immediate feedback. We have invited FutureRising back again to run another session.”
— Catherine Alexander, Careers Adviser, Cambridge University
“It was our pleasure having FutureRising at Leeds College of Art. We have had a very positive experience and our students gave us very good feedback.”
