Summit in London sets new standards in networking

Thanks to IMC alumni ambassador Thomas Tuschek, the first IMC Alumni Business Summit in London, which featured high-profile guests and a lively related programme, was an outstanding success that took networking to new levels.

Participants at the summit enjoyed a perfect weekend at this unique, extremely well organised networking event: (from left to right) Dan Hanson and Rafael Barrios Cueto (Bloomberg), Kuheli Das Gupta, Klaus Ehrenbrandtner, Undine Handorf, Julia Schober, Verena Preisinger, Thomas Tuschek, Marianne Glon-Villeneuve, Denise McKinney Huter, Christina Huter, Sandra Steinhauer, Stephanie Sadjak, Michaela Grill, Philipp Ertl, Astrid Gnauer, Max Schachner (not in photo: Gregor Seuffert, Sales & Account Management at Bloomberg)

The inaugural IMC Krems Alumni Business Summit took place in London from 27-29 October. Alumni ambassador Thomas Tuschek enlisted a number of successful London-based Austrian businesspeople from various sectors of the economy to take part in discussions at the summit. IMC Krems was represented by Max Schachner, Head of Academic Mobility, who along with Thomas Tuschek welcomed 15 alumni to the event.

From Bloomberg to Spitalfields

Summing up, Thomas Tuschek said: “The two-day programme covered everything from a discussion of topical business issues, followed by a Q&A session with Bloomberg presenter Dan Hanson and a panel discussion with representatives of successful, London-based Austrian companies, as well as a visit to the Sky Garden with its spectacular views of central London. We rounded off the summit at a cool bar in the trendy Spitalfields area of the capital, where the participants had some lively discussions, and also the chance to chat and network.”

“Under any other circumstances, it wouldn’t have been possible to book such an exclusive talk at Bloomberg, which provided in-depth background information on Brexit. This was the undisputed highlight and it was of exceptional value in a professional sense. It also formed the basis for valuable and detailed proposals for the programme at the second IMC Krems Alumni Business Summit to be held in a different alumni chapter location,” Max Schachner explained.

To be continued...

“The IMC London Chapter is a trailblazer when it comes to professional and social networking between graduates and business partners. We can’t thank Thomas Tuschek enough for his outstanding effort, which was all on a voluntary basis. We will definitely be using this highly successful format again next year,” added IMC Alumni Relations Manager Tina Weiss.
