Industry skills workshops

For a list of our upcoming industry skills workshops, please see our Event page

To date we’ve hosted Skills Workshops at the following firms:

Saatchi & Saatchi

At the world’s most famous advertising agency, WOHAA students get an insight of the workings of Saatchi & Saatchi and behind the scenes footage of their adverts. Being responsible for driving and leading the agency in London, Saatchi’s Marketing Director Michael Rebelo takes time away from his busy to lead the session for WOHAA participants. Finally, WOHAA student’s also get to hear about Saatchi’s famous Summer Scholarship Programme from a graduate who was lucky enough to get hired at the end of it.


Being the world’s largest independent Public Relations Agency, Jackie Cooper explains how Edelman is determined to face the future challenges of the communications industry. As Creative Director & Vice Chair of Edelman, Jackie Cooper delivers an engaging presentation to provide our students with a good understanding of the transformation of the PR industry. Students lucky enough to attend these workshops are able to apply the knowledge they learn not only during the session, but in promoting their own WOHAA projects too.


Accenture is a global management consulting company who collaborate with clients to help them become high-performance businesses and governments. The Accenture workshop seems to tick all the boxes, from general information about the industry to CV tips and interview techniques. This jam-packed session in the heart of the City of London is something not to be missed.

Sotheby’s Art Auction House

This year we were lucky enough to arrange a number of skills workshops at the world’s fourth oldest auction house. The students who attended were given a grand tour of the London offices on New Bond Street, including a detailed history of Sotheby’s and its origin. Furthermore, the students were able to sit in on an auction and get an idea of the life of an auctioneer. Some were even able to persuade him to come along to their event and help out with their own auction.


This well-known pharmaceutical company offers WOHAA students the chance to gain in-depth knowledge of the industry and careers paths for those of you interested in studying Medicine, Bio-Chemistry and Neurobiology. Students attend a variety of talks and laboratory experiments throughout the day, making it an enthralling session that must not be missed. This workshop is based in Nottingham; however, free transport is available for students.

Clifford Chance

Clifford Chance LLP is a global law firm headquartered in London and a member of the ‘Magic Circle’ of leading law firms in the UK. They host legal workshops for WOHAA students who are considering law as a university degree or profession. This workshop will be invaluable to any student thinking of becoming a lawyer, as they will gain knowledge of the sector and get a real feel for what a career as a lawyer is really like. Furthermore, they will provide advice on applying for jobs within the industry and educational routes to gain entry into the sector.
