Alumni who attended last year's inaugural US event said:

“I loved this event. It reminds me how strong the LSE network.”

“Fantastic evening!  Really wonderful reconnecting with the LSE community across the pond. Please run more events like this!”

 “This was a wonderful event – cheers to the LSE for working to connect alumni abroad!  I particularly appreciated the variety of industries represented and the intimate environment in which we were all able to talk.  As someone new to DC, I also appreciated that LSE career coaches are available to hopefully offer advice on next steps as I proceed on from the LSE.”

“This is a really valuable networking opportunity with great potential to grow.  Keep it up!”
