Are you new to the Industry? A Student?
If your a student then maybe your already attending this event through your college or university, if not then please feel free to pass on the details to your tutors, lecturers or instructors and get them to bring you along (tell them its free). However maybe you're not a student, maybe you're just a person, maybe new to the outdoor industry, maybe you've done a few seasons and are looking for a way to progress your career? While this event is primarily aimed at those coming with their college or university we also understand that their are many other diverse ways that people enter this industry and so for that reason we do sell a limited number of tickets. However this is not for experienced professionals (sorry), there's plenty already out there for them, its strictly for those individuals who are at the start of their careers. If that's you then please get in touch for details of how to purchase your ticket!
So whether your already coming or thinking about coming, what's in it for you? How do you make the most of the event? Who else will be there?
The simple answer is lots of people and that's the great thing about Beyond Horizons, there will be a huge range of employers, organisations, workshops and keynote speakers who are all there to help you to get started in your career. Everyone is really friendly and happy to answers questions (or if you can't think of any), talk to you about what they do and how they got to where they are and give advice from their real life lived experiences. There are employers their recruiting for the coming season, so if your not sure what your doing next summer or next year or in five years time (who does?) then come along and see what's on offer. It's a great opportunity to meet employers face to face, find out what they are looking for and get a foot in the door before you've even filled in an application!
Keynote speakers will share with you their stories, adventures and top tips for living and working in this exciting sector. Every event has different speakers, in the past we've had Callum Muskett professional climber, mountaineer, guide, coach, journalist and photographer all at aged 23, another event saw Tom Rainey share his experiences rowing across the Atlantic with just one friend and a lot of Whiskey. We've also been lucky enough to hear from Danny Claricoates MC about his journey from life as a Royal Marine to working in the outdoors.
Workshops will give you the opportunity to develop your practice, learn about something new, gain employability skills or simple get some tips from those who've done it before. You get to choose which workshop you attend so you can decide what looks interesting or useful to you personally.
If you've got any questions, just pop us a text, email, give us a call or connect on social media. We look forward to seeing you at the next event, in the meantime check out our 'Work opportunities' page to see what might be on offer.
