"I enjoyed the fact that there were a range of diverse speakers from all different types of companies and areas of finance. As a young women it’s a bit daunting trying to get into a male dominated industry but SEO made sure to get many women in high positions to come and talk with us on which I really liked. I also liked seeing all the range within finance jobs. Finance is such a big industry with so many different areas so it was great to see lots of different types of jobs being covered throughout the academy."
