Chairman’s Welcome

Welcome to Reach Society’s first virtual Careers Conference. It is the Society’s annual inspirational event designed for young people aged 13 years and older. This event provides the chance for young people to access scores of professionals and high achievers from their community; and to engage with dozens of employers in the private, public and community sectors to discover future opportunities. It also provides access to the Perfect 10 Workshops in which the secrets of success are revealed. Put simply, this event is designed to provide young people with answers to their questions about pathways to success.

Careers Conference Features

The Careers Conference is made up of four key features which are the Perfect 10 Workshops; networking with volunteer role models and the STEMM (science technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) team; discovering opportunities from corporate and community exhibitors; and the chance to pick up success tips from a Panel of Experts.

In closing, this year’s Careers Conference is a virtual event owing to the risk to health from the novel coronavirus.
