BSAS Grill the President Webinar

08 Nov 2021

For those that couldn’t attend our Grill the President event on the 26th of October, don’t worry, as the session video is now live and online and available to view on the BSAS website. It was an incredibly successful event, which saw BSAS President Professor Michael Lee, beat the hot seat and survive the pressure of our inquisitive Early Career audience, all under the watchful eye of our event chairs – Lucy Ross and George Peart. During the session, Michael offered attendees some fantastic advice on how to make a successful transition from student to professional, and what steps to take to help ensure a positive future in their chosen career path. He also provided an invaluable insight into the many benefits of a BSAS membership and the vital work that the Society does to ensure a prosperous for future for the animal science field.

‘It was a great privilege to field the questions from our early career scientists, who are the future of our society and the sector. The passion and interest from the students were clear and our future is in good hands. I would also like to thank Lucy and George for doing such an excellent job of chairing and keeping me on my toes’ Professor Michael Lee

'Thank you to everyone who joined us for Grill the President! It was a full hour of grilling Michael on all aspects of animal science and BSAS; from advice to student's undecided on their next career step to how BSAS can help African communities achieve sustainable livestock production. We can confirm Michael did an excellent job in the hotseat and provided a comprehensive insight to what BSAS can offer its members. We look forward to speaking with you all again soon!' Lucy Ross, Co-Chair, Early Career Council.

'The key message to take away was that BSAS provides its members with a vast and growing network of contacts, support and opportunities – come and join us!' - George Peart, ECC Co-Chair
