The College has held its first ever Media Alumni Group reception. Hosted by Adam Boulton, Political Editor at Sky News and King’s College London Council member, graduates working at organisations such as the BBC, Channel 4 and Voice of America attended.
Following a welcome from the Principal, Professor Rick Trainor, Adam Boulton chaired an ‘In conversation with …’ two of King’s professors, Alison Wolf, Sir Roy Griffiths Professor of Public Sector Management, and Robert Blackburn, Professor of Constitutional Law, in which they explored the outcome, ramifications and issues thrown up by the general election and hung Parliament. This was followed by a question and answer session.
Chris Coe, Director of Communications, then talked about the role of the College’s press office and how it could help this group of alumni, while Jennifer Garner, Deputy Director of Development, gave an update on the College’s latest initiatives, including plans for the newly acquired East Wing of Somerset House.
The alumni also had the opportunity to meet with some of King’s world-leading researchers and scientists and to network with each other.
It is hoped that this event will be the first of many. For more information about the group, please contact the Alumni Office on (0)20 7848 4703.
