Meet the committee

Tess Brook

Second Year BSc International Business and Marketing

As President my main focus is to ensure LUBS society continues to grow and thrive on campus and beyond, by constantly communicating not only with the university representatives, but also with local and global employers, identifying and creating opportunities for the society and its members. Leading and coordinating the committee’s 11 members is an extremely important part of the role, delegating responsibilities and supporting each committee member in their tasks. I compile agendas for the weekly committee meetings and attend university-wide executive assemblies on behalf of the society.

As General Secretary I am responsible for writing a monthly newsletter which informs all LUBS members of upcoming activities within the society. By working closely with the President, I endeavour to ensure that the committee works together efficiently, so that all of our LUBS events are enjoyable and a great success. My role involves writing agendas for weekly meetings, taking minutes and also carrying out risk assessments for each of the events we hold.

As Events Secretary , I am responsible for the two biggest events that LUBS has to offer, the trip abroad and the ball! I have been working with  travel companies over summer in order to secure the best location and value for all of our members for this years trip. I’m also looking forward to organising the LUBS ball when term starts again by looking at different locations and entertainment to make the night even bigger and better than it was this year. I will be working very closely with the Publicity Secretary in order to create all the hype for our exciting events and socials.

My role in the committee is to organise all the socials throughout the year including Freshers, Halloween, a secret social, end of exams and more. The aim of the socials is to bring all of our members together, make them feel part of a community and make connections within the business school. As a part of my role I have regular meetings with events managers and strive to get the best possible experiences for our members.   Decorating venues, selling tickets and promoting events in lectures are also some of the elements of my position as social secretary.

My role as Marketing Secretary involves managing all forms of communication across the board to our fellow LUBS members and other stakeholders involved with our society. I monitor all social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Email to ensure all our exciting news and events are broadcasted to the correct audience. I work closely alongside the Design and Merchandiser, as we work on the website together. I use my marketing skills to not only promote our social events but academic ones too, this enables our members to be aware of the vast variety of fantastic opportunities we have on offer for them!

Second Year BSc International Business and Marketing 

As the Design and Merchandise Secretary I work closely with the Publicity Secretary, coming up with creative and eye catching ways to market our socials and events. My role involves working with photoshop, Canva and other online design platforms, a great way for me to learn more about graphic design as my skills currently are more in practical art. From designing the freshers T-shirt’s to creating our website, these promotional materials will hopefully create a buzz within our society and give everyone the information they need to attend our exciting events.

'LUBS Society is a great, inclusive society which has helped me to make lasting connections.'  

Victoria Eley

"As a LUBS member for the past few years, I would highly recommend joining this society to make the most of your uni experience! Of course the socials are a major appealing factor (who would say no to a free bar tab!) and are great for meeting other students from different years and courses. Not only does LUBS offer the opportunity to network with other students but also with a number of the leading graduate employers ( eg. PwC, Deloitte, Unilever, Procter and Gamble etc) as they organise many career events throughout the year. I have attended numerous informal networking events, interview workshops and it has been a great way to ask any questions and explore areas with the experts! I found these opportunities very beneficial when finding a work placement.'

Lucy Anderson 

My role as treasurer is comprised of supervising the society budget, overseeing the all of the sales income (membership fees, ticket sales and career events) and expenditure (sports teams and socials). As a result, I am required to devise an annual budget, forecast future costs and act as a partial relationship manager to a diverse range of firms. It’s a great responsibility and has helped develop my financial literacy.

'The LUBS Society has allowed me to improve my networking skills whilst being introduced to inspiring people in the business world.'

'LUBS has allowed me to take part in networking events which I found to improve my confidence when talking to professionals.'

Jess Mount
