‘No Win, No Fee’ Education

#EventprofReads: Week 42

Here’s the latest #EventprofReads roundup, curated for you by The Guide to Events on Twitter and the Eventprofs London LinkedIn group. Please share with colleagues and add your comments. We hope you enjoy!  Here’s what we learned this week…

How the young are being left high and dry by the perils of student debt, in The Evening Standard:

“…The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) has calculated that, with annual fees at £9,250, students will have topped up what they owe with £5,800 in interest charges before they even don their mortarboard and gown for graduation.”

That the City is ‘haemorrhaging’ Financial Services talent because of Brexit, in The Guardian:

“…According to headhunters Morgan McKinley there was an 11% slide in the number of City jobs in July, compared with a year ago, and a 33% fall in professionals seeking positions.”

That #eventprofs have criticised venues’ lack of clarity, pricing & poor response rates, from M&IT:

“…Location, venue cost, and availability of preferred dates were the top features that influence a planner’s decision to book a specific venue. Event planners also said comparing different price structures, negotiating with the venue and researching venues caused the most challenges during the sourcing process.”

Who made it onto this year’s “35 Innovators under 35” list, in MIT Technology Review:

“…behind all those innovations are people with dreams, fears, and ambitions. Sometimes they hack away at a problem for years before figuring out a way forward.”

And finally… How Uber’s Game of Thrones is getting uglier by the day, in Vanity Fair:

“…The company was reportedly interested in finding a female chief executive to turn things around, but its possible candidates have been dissuaded from taking on the role when Kalanick is so obviously maneuvering to “Steve Jobs” a comeback.”
