The event played host to over 60 employers and provided them with the opportunity to see how technology is shaping the business landscape and to discover how current businesses are using technology innovatively to benefit them.
The guests had the chance to attend a sequence of short presentations from both global and local businesses, who explained how they use technology and the benefits of this. NatWest, Parkinson, EEF, Chattertons, Seeing Machines and Metsa all gave presentations relevant to technology in their sector.
There was also the opportunity after the presentations for the visiting businesses to have a look at the 12 exhibits on display from businesses such as the NHS Talent Academy, EEF, Rolec, Metsa and even electric motor vehicle giants Tesla. The exhibits not only gave the chance to visiting businesses to have a look at their products and to network but also gave students from Boston College the opportunity to speak and learn from some of the industry’s big names.
Tris Cox, a representative for Tesla said, “It has been very beneficial to see local businesses and the opportunities that have arose in how we could collaborate and work together. The whole event has been well thought through and nicely put together by Boston College.”
George Bell, Employer Engagement Manager at Boston College illustrated the importance of the event by saying,“The event has successfully raised awareness of how technology is changing businesses in all areas, such as the food industry, aviation and manufacturing. It has enabled businesses of all sizes to strengthen links between each other and with our students at Boston College.”
