Who are they?
An ambassador is a student nominated from outside Warwick University who acts as a representative for the Summit. As such, they are responsible for promoting the Summit nationally and overseas through social networking, distributing posters and flyering. They are the local point of contact for students at their university regarding the Summit information. Moreover, they are encouraged to organise a delegation of fellow students to attend the Summit.
Working with us as an integral part of the Externals Marketing & Hospitality team, their role ranges from improving our campus presence to answering queries of interested delegates and updating them on our latest developments. Supporting the ambassadors along the way are dedicated Ambassador Managers within the Externals Marketing & Hospitality team, who will provide them with what is needed to succeed in such a role.
This year, the opportunity will be open to students in UK universities following many requests to expand the scheme nationally. The responsibilities of the role are the same: to help us to provide updates and better access to the Summit for students at home.
Becoming an Ambassador is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your creativity, to perfect one's marketing skills, and to play an active part in a world-renowned academic conference.
