Henley’s 70th anniversary online HUB

Earlier in the year, we asked our alumni for help in celebrating Henley’s 70th anniversary by sharing their memories and future predictions for our online HUB. And respond you did!

A big thank you to the over 200 alumni who have already shared their stories. The HUB is now live and ready to view!

A big thank you to the over 200 alumni who have already shared their stories. The HUB is now live and ready to view!

The HUB is split into three main sections, the first of which offers an interactive walk through Henley’s 70-year history. Starting in 1942 with the war-time discussions about creating an administrative staff college in the UK and moving through to the present day, the timeline includes recollections of visits from world leaders, ground-breaking research and much more in-between!

The second section focuses on bringing together the experiences of alumni, Henley students and staff, and our partner institutions. There is still time to add your memories and predictions to the HUB. You can either get in touch via the ‘Have your Say’ tab on the site or take a look at the questions at the bottom of this page and send your responses to Henley’s 70th Team.

The third section of the HUB looks forward to the next 70 years and beyond. It considers what the world will look like in the future, what businesses will have to do to continue to flourish and what Henley’s role will be in shaping that future, as a leading provider of business education. The predications focus on a wide variety of subjects, such as the growth of digitisation, the changes that technology will bring as it is used to disrupt markets and the increased role that ethics may play in business decisions. Discover more predictions and contribute your own here.

The HUB is part of a range of special events and activities, including a special anniversary dinner for alumni on the 21 May 2016 – do save the date!
