Over 100 participants from more than 10 countries joined the first virtual OGG Business Lunch on Wednesday 22 April. Hosted by Andrew Burgess (FB'81), Old Geelong Grammarians gathered on Zoom for an hour-long presentation from communications specialist Nina Anderson (Thomas, Cl'93) before breaking off into smaller groups to network with others, practice their 'elevator pitch' and just have a chat with other OGGs. Nina's presentation, which covered such topics as sudden, unexpected job loss or leaving university with no work in your chosen field and how to be visible, articulate and relevant in the market both during a shutdown and on the other side, can be viewed below.
