Warwick gets Kick'd (excuse the pun..)

The roundup from our first Kick Fair


Phew, our first Kick Campus event has been and gone - we can't be happier with how it went on the day!

We arrived at Warwick to sunshine, rainbows and birds singing... ok that's a bit of an overstatement, but it was quite sunny. Anyway, we arrived and by 12, all 19 companies had arrived too and got all set up.

After bribing students in with chocolate we had a great buzz in the room and the three hour long event flew by. It was great to hear feedback from students and companies alike who had enjoyed the fair and wanted to come again!

We are really keen to hear any thoughts and constructive criticism about the event, so if you have anything to say then let us know!
