Inspiring Women in Business

As part of the Bangor Business School Athena Swan agenda, which is a commitment to gender equality and boosting female careers within the School, three female students took part in a mentorship programme with successful female entrepreneurs. All students gained valuable experiences and guidance from the entrepreneurs with one student moving on to start her own business as a result of the programme. 

“Through this mentorship programme, I have gained confidence in networking and my abilities as a whole. I have started a company called Be Heard, with the aim of raising awareness of neurodiverse conditions. The aim is to support young people with neurodiverse conditions in education and into employment.” - Rebecca Bowyer 

0:00 Hi my name is Rebecca, I'm a third year business  management and marketing student who lives on  

0:05 Anglesey just the other side of Menai Bridge. I was involved in the Athena Swan  

0:10 female mentorship program where I was partnered  with a local entrepreneur who encouraged me and  

0:15 helped me set up my own business. Julie Williams  she runs the Coaching Den 4 Life and works  

0:19 with Big Ideas Wales. Julie gave me the skill  set to start networking more effectively and  

0:25 using my passion to make a difference um involving  setting up on my own, yeah it was quite eye-opening  

0:32 to the opportunities that are around and the  support that is there in the local area and  

0:37 from the government in terms of setting up your  own business. She gave me the confidence to take  

0:42 the next steps that I wouldn't have done on my  own without her I wouldn't have started going  

0:46 to massive networking events in London and such  which is quite a big leap from a local girl on  

0:52 a small island and she also gave me the really  the toolkit to start and allowed me to expand  

1:00 on those skills slowly over time and so I've  set up a company and it's called behead raising  

1:05 awareness of neurodiversity and I primarily work  to raise the profile neurodiverse and differences  

1:11 in healthcare and education while mentoring young  people who perhaps don't have the support system  

1:16 like I benefited from when I was younger. Say yes  to every opportunity that comes your way as much  

1:22 as it's out of your comfort zone because your  comfort zone will stay small if you don't keep  

1:27 expanding it slowly and slowly and slowly and  you'll be amazed how far you can actually come.

Bangor Business School Facilities

Above is the Bangor Business School's Trading Floor. Within the space we have Bloomberg Terminals which students can access.

0:06 Well the staff are so friendly and accessible  I knew I could go to them with any issues I  

0:11 had or any questions about assignments it was  a really relaxed atmosphere and relationship  

0:16 that I had with them and I knew that they  cared about what I was interested in as well.  

0:21 I made the most out of the societies because when  you come to University for the first time it was  

0:26 nice to know that there was just so many different  opportunities available there was a running  

0:30 club, we would run around Bangor sometimes in  Treborth and that just offered the opportunity  

0:36 to get out and about meet people again. I'm  making friends now that I've made for life.  

0:42 We do offer personal one-to-one tutee's and it's  just a really colligative atmosphere to work in  

0:48 and I do sincerely believe the students benefit from that  as well. When students are actually engaging  

0:53 with you which is fantastic and you know that  you're making a difference that's really rewarding.

1:00 They were always happy to  help any time you send an email they'd answer

1:03 so as soon as they could. Just that total support  there all the time only an email away and all  

1:04 the new friends I've made and all the communities  in Bangor it's great.

1:17 So I lived up at

1:18 the St Mary's Halls which is quite a nice little  tight-knit community it was really good and really  

1:23 refreshing as well to have people both from my  course in my flat but also from other courses.

1:31 Bangor is such a beautiful area you've got Snowdon or the Wyddfa so close by and just  

1:36 being able to climb that venture around to  different parts of North Wales is brilliant.

Graduate Profile Tom Haynes

Thanks to the guidance and support that was given to me by my lecturers, I left with a first class honours degree and now hold the position of International CRM Executive at Castore. The course helped me understand the mechanics behind how consumers engage with products and brands and how organisations can learn to monitor those behaviours and deliver superior value back to their consumers.

Bangor is just a fantastic place to be. The scenery is amazing, and the University itself looks incredible. I’d heard great things about the student experience in Bangor, so I knew it would be a place I would enjoy. There were some really great lecturers that genuinely cared about students success. It’s more than just a job to them. And a lot of them stay in touch after as well!

Graduate Profile Joshua Roberts

Attending Bangor University has significantly influenced my career. The reason I began to work with Real Ice is because of the network I built whilst at the university. This in-turn means that I have connected with significant figures in both politics and media. My experiences at the University allowed me to grow and gain confidence, which means that I am comfortable talking to and working with senior stakeholders, something I would only have dreamt of before attending Bangor University.

Bangor Business School Alumni Catrin Mather

Graduate Profile Catrin Mather

I choose to study at Bangor Business School because the post-graduate Business and Marketing programme meant that I would graduate with a dual award of a Master of Arts and a Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership. This stood me in good stead to be able to progress in my career with good theoretical underpinning to support my professional studies and commercial experience.

I would not have the career I pursued without studying at Bangor Business School. I acquired knowledge beyond the degree. By learning from lecturers with industry experience, I gained an understanding of the practical application of academic studies. It helped me tackle genuine business problems facing clients in my industry.
