The first five years after graduation

Theodora Alfredsdottir, Associate Lecturer in Interior Design, will be giving a talk in collaboration with Creative Skills Network.

Date: 27 July 2021

On 5 August, Theodora Alfredsdottir, Associate Lecturer in Interior Design at London Met, will be giving an online talk about the first five years after graduating, sharing her own experiences of finding success in her field. She will touch upon some of the key projects she worked on after graduating, how they came out, and how they have been significant for her progression, as well as everyday successes and failures. 

The talk has been organised in collaboration with Creative Skills Network, a directory of selected, high-level creative practitioners who share the benefit of their knowledge and experience to guide emerging creatives and entrepreneurs.

Theodora said: “I’m looking forward to the talk, and I hope the students find it helpful, but at the same time I just always love talks where people are just honest about their journey, so hopefully it will come across as a sincere reflection on the transition from student life to more of a professional life.”
