Jennifer Jones Rigby, Assistant Director at Health Exchange, has been invited by the University of Birmingham (UoB) to be a judge at its Postgraduate Enterprise Summer School (PESS).
PESS provides an intensive week of training for postgraduates in a wide range of specialist areas. Alongside professional skills training, participants take part in research, listen to guest speakers and work in small teams to solve a real challenge being faced by an influential local organisation. At the end of the week they present their proposals to a panel of the organisation’s representatives.
Jennifer says: “This will be the second year that I have participated in the PESS challenge week and I am delighted to be involved. It is a valuable exercise for both the students and the organisations involved, helping to bridge the gap between theory and real life situations.”
