Grass Roots Meetings & Events employ off the back of inaugural MPI Connects

Grass Roots Meetings & Events has employed a talented industry jobseeker following the inaugural MPI Connects event.

The event, which took place in April at Westminster University, brought together industry employers and talented jobseekers. As a result, Grass Roots Meetings & Events has employed Bournemouth University’s Takara Patrick as an Event Coordinator and she began her role on the 15th June.


MPI Connects combined insightful education with speed-dating style meetings whilst  enabling young jobseekers to learn more about potential positions, opportunities and interview techniques. Content also included body language, what employers really look for and how students can make their CVs stand out from the rest. Employers were also asked to share their experiences related to student and graduate employment.

Hamish Reid, UK Commercial Director at Meeting Professionals International, said: “One of our main aims is to aid students with the transition between full-time education and finding a career. MPI Connects was created for the sole purpose of connecting jobseekers and students like Takara to potential recruiters so for a global company such as Grass Roots to hire as a result of the event is a real success.”
