THE contribution made by graduates to York’s economy has been recognised and celebrated at Higher York’s latest event.
The organisation, set up to promote and improve higher education training, invited graduates from York’s universities and colleges to attend its second joint networking event, held this week at Bettys Tearoom.
Carrie Drewer, of Higher York, said: “With more than higher education students each year, York benefits from the substantial economic, social and cultural contributions they make.
“However, their contributions don’t stop there. Many graduates choose to stay in the city once they have their degree and continue to contribute to York’s prosperity.
“Former students are leading and working in some of York’s top organisations and starting businesses, as well as raising families in the city.”
Mr Smith, who owns music magazine Soundsphere, said: “I’m delighted to have been asked to speak at this event.
“It’s a great opportunity to make new connections and meet graduates from all the colleges and universities.
“There’s such a rich diversity of people who choose to stay here after completing their studies and this creates a great environment for emerging businesses such as my own.”
