What is it really like working in the City? How do you start a career in finance? Young people at Westminster City School can find out from two inspirational speakers at our second online careers event.

WCS Insights: Business Brains takes place at 5pm on Wednesday 14 October. Our two speakers from AT&T, a multinational telecommunications company, will provide a fascinating insight into working in finance today.

Alongside Julie will be her colleague, Sonia Chau, who also joined AT&T in 2000, working in mergers and acquisitions, before becoming finance partner to the marketing team and international ventures organisation. Sonia has now spent 10 years as finance partner to the IBM sales team in Europe and Asia Pacific.
