It’s been a tough 18 months for everyone, and sadly we have not managed to hold any of the in-person events we had planned.
With vaccination numbers looking good and life beginning to somewhat return to normality, we are hoping to hold our alumni Christmas dinner again this December. As those of you who have been before will attest, this is normally the highlight of our events calendar year.
This year it may have to be a bit more modest, but we are doing our best to find a venue that will meet our expectations.
The exact day is still to be confirmed, but once we know we will email the alumni list for Berlin. Please make sure we have your up-to-date details here.
We are very excited that this year’s main European alumni conference, “Meeting Minds”, will be held in Berlin on the 20th and 21st of March at the Humboldt Universität.
Highlights will include:
- A talk from the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Louise Richardson, and a discussion on challenges facing Europe chaired by the Chancellor, Lord Patten of Barnes
- Fantastic insights into how Oxford can help student and alumni business start-ups
- A series of careers events for speed networking, with tips on how to refine your work management strategy
- World leading academics providing exclusive lectures on a broad range of diverse topics such as the neurology behind motivation and apathy, does nature or nurture shape who we are, and advancements being made in pollution monitoring
- Enjoying a drink at our closing reception with fellow Oxonians
You can see the full programme, and sign up on the Meeting Minds website.
5th December 2019: For the second year running, we held our traditional Christmas meal together with the Cambridge Berlin Alumni group at the Tennis Club 1889 Blau-Weiss. Highlights of the evening included a talk from Prof Alastair Buchan, a visit from Santa Claus, and of course some Christmas carols around the piano.
1st October 2019: Berlin OBA representative, and MBA alumni, Steven Renwick, gave a talk about his experience of launching his startup, raising a large amount of investment money, and then ultimately having to sell the company from administration.
August 2019: Thanks to the brave and patient Henrik, a crew of Oxford alumni, on everything from road bikes to a hired Donkey Republic bike, met in Potsdam and did a bike tour in the Summer sun, including a stop for a dip in a lake!
