More than 80 people attended the annual function of UKZN’s Alumnus Association in Europe held at South Africa House in central London.
Chair of the Alumnus Association in Europe, Mr Bruno van Dyk, welcomed the gathering and introduced the speakers: President and Chair of Convocation, Mr Fanle Sibisi; Professor Adrian Furnham who delivered the main address, and Executive Director of the UKZN Foundation, Professor Anesh Singh.
In his address, Sibisi stressed the need for graduates to “give-back” to their alma mater and gave an update on the recent student protests.
Furnham provided a most entertaining and thought-provoking address titled: “Money and Motivation at Work”.
Singh gave an update on the role of the UKZN Foundation and encouraged everyone to consider donating to the University.
South African canapés and drinks were served after the talks and guests were able to network and catch-up with fellow graduates. A lucky-draw was held and UKZN specific gifts were presented to lucky winners. Folders with the latest UKZN information and UKZN mementos were distributed.
