The British Council and British Embassy with support from GREAT Britain campaign are pleased to invite UK alumni to a lecture on learning agility followed by networking time with other UK alumni.

UK alumni have an advantage over many of their peers in that they have gained an education from some of the world’s leading higher education institutions.

However, to succeed in our volatile, complex, ambiguous world, we have no choice but to master our ability to adapt and learn. An ability and willingness to learn from our experiences and subsequently apply that learning to perform successfully under new conditions can give you a distinct advantage in building your career.

Come to our the first event in our lecture series for UK alumni to learn from David Mashuri, Partner and Country Manager at WE Partners Kazakhstan, about the 5 factors that contribute to Learning Agility, and how the concept is used in leadership development in international companies.

The events in Astana and Almaty will be hosted by the Bochonok restaurant chain. All participants will receive a free non-alcoholic welcome drink from AB Restaurants and a 15% discount will apply to all orders made during the events!

Please register for the event. We have a limited number of places, so first come, first served! 

Participation is free of charge for alumni of UK universities, schools and colleges.

If you have any questions, please, let us know at
