“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.”
Psychology & Philosophy 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.”
“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.”
