Rene Carayol - SPIKE is Here!
Over the last few months, I've been planting my "SPIKE" seeds wherever I go around the globe, whether it be in schools, SMEs, large corporations, with entrepreneurs, MBA students and now I'm starting to hear quiet rumbles 'what is Spike, who is Spike, where can I find these Spikes?'
Reaching Scotland
Pulling into Waverley train station in Edinburgh signalled the arrival of Reach Society in Scotland. The name of this station is also the title of the first novel by Sir Walter Scott, reputed to be the William Shakespeare of Scotland; and it is fitting that just 3 minutes’ walk away is a very large statue of him within the Scott monument.

CANDI's 4th Employability Day, January'17

Emeritus Professor Sir Geoff Palmer hosted the first series of talks entitled: "Meet a famous scientist," at Reach Society's 4th Employability Day on Friday, 27 January, at City and Islington College.

Students were surprised and delighted to discover the story of a local boy who went on to become a distinguished scientist and professor at Heriot-Watt University; and who transformed the UK's brewing industry with his invention of the Barley Abrasion Process.

In addition, more than 440 students, aged 16 plus, had an interactive day speaking with slightly fewer than 18 employers such as Arsenal FC, British Interplanetary Society, KPMG, High Speed 2, Transport for London, Royal Air Force, NHS, Thames Water and Turner Lovell. Students also received hints and tips from a set of 8 themed workshops led by a team of 12 trained role models from Reach Society.

Daniel Norris, deputy director, Centre for Applied Science, CANDI, thanked the Society for delivering yet another impactful event for their students.
