Dr Stephen Goss (SCR) shared his personal journey from being a medical student and researcher/lecturer to heading the Preclinical Medical School and subsequently becoming the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Personnel and Equality) of the University of Oxford. He encouraged the audience to take risks and to embrace the opportunities presented in life, while being aware of, and prepared for, the consequences.

Cameron Higgins (MCR) shared his experiences working with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), in particular his involvement during the Nepal Earthquake in earlier this year. He explained the challenges faced during the efforts in providing food and relief supplies at the remote mountain areas of Nepal.

The event, organised by Wadham College Research Associates, was an inspiring evening for those who attended. Members of the audience were given the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion after each talk.

This event formed part of the Wadham Inspires Talk Series designed to strengthen the interaction between the college MCR and SCR. The Research Associates would like to thank both speakers for sharing their life experiences in this event, and hope that more members of the College will participate and benefit from their future events. 

This event, the third in the Wadham Inspires Talk Series took place on 30 October in the McCall MacBain Graduate Centre.
