In a mixed-media first for the Chamber the local college held a networking evening and rounded it off with a performance of their South Thames College Music Learners
Wandsworth Chamber of Commerce is open to new ideas and ways of communicating. On 21st May South Thames College held a networking event and business students mixed with Chamber members, then went to an uplifting performance by some of the talented music students at the event.
Wandsworth Chamber CEO Steve Pinto introduced the event and spoke about the Chamber’s support for businesses in the borough and the Young Chamber, which is a partnership with Roehampton University which aims to help young people with an ambition to make their career within the business world gain valuable experience and guidance.
The business students included Bilal, who has ambitions to be an entrepreneur, and is studying marketing at the moment and Alex, who has been surmounting his disability in an impressive way by calling businesses to get them involved with the college’s business outreach programmes.
The music student were a mixture of year groups and had been practicing their performances since February. Four different sessions from different student music groups showed off a variety of skills and influences and musical techniques, which while rough around some edges, also showed impressive talent and some of the players demonstrated how they were proficient with different instruments.
The event was held at STC’s Wandsworth Campus, which has excellent facilities, and look like it will launch a new generation of both musicians and business creators into the borough.
