Get involved with Griffith
Friday, April 3, 2020
Griffith College has several initiatives you can get involved with over the coming weeks, including everything from online courses to podcast series. Check out how you can get involved below.
Restart your business, rethink your strategy workshops
Griffith College has partnered with ISME, Ireland’s Small Medium Enterprise association, to support Ireland’s small and medium business sector in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Commencing on 6th April and facilitated by the Graduate Business School, industry experts will lead a series of free workshops entitled ‘Restart your Business, Rethink your Strategy.’ The workshops will take place from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday).
Presenters will include: economist Jim Power, who will provide an overview on the global economy post-COVID-19; Pádraig Ó Céidigh, former CEO of Aer Arann, who will discuss building a new reality for Irish SMEs; and a panel of expert practitioners who will discuss optimising supply chains and operations for smaller businesses.
Griffith College Book Society
Our book society offers quarterly reads, hot picks and faculty long reads as well as providing an opportunity to connect with students, staff and alumni. The book society also gives you an opportunity to share your favourite books and leave feedback or reviews on recommendations.
As the society grows, there will be future opportunities for on-campus book society meetings, where members can discuss reads, share notes and make use of the on-campus library facilities!
Griffith Alumni Network
Imagine an online social networking site with past and present Griffith College connections, who want to stay in touch, share job openings, become mentors and much more. An exclusive online alumni community where you can find your college friends, develop mentoring and networking relationships, join industry or local chapters, and post events and photos, all in a supportive and welcoming community.
The Network is also available to Griffith College students in their final year of study and is a great way to find a mentor, search for internships or jobs, and prepare for life after college.
