About this event

Commercial awareness is highly valued by potential employers but can be a tricky concept to understand. In a nutshell, it’s all about your general knowledge of business, your understanding of the industry that you’re applying to join and your business or other experiences that might have given you more relevant knowledge than you realise. Still, it can be a hard skill to crack, it’s for this reason that Asad Ali is coming to talk about how to be commercially aware.

Asad is a Partner at Blacks Solicitors based here in Leeds, who specialises in Company and Commercial Law. He also sits on the Board of Trustees at LUU, making him perfectly placed to talk to you about how to connect your voluntary experiences at the Union with your next step.

Please note: this workshop is only open to participants of the Recognise Award.
