Business Leaders Insights - Guest Speaker - Alex Clancy

What is 'Business Leaders Insights'?

The BLI was devised out of our member surveys which consistently indicate a requirement for big-picture insight and interaction with key figures. A top-level networking event, targeted towards business leaders and owners. Headlined with a keynote speaker discussing what they do for the local business community. 

Alex joined Yeovil College as Director of Employer Engagement in November 2021 bringing extensive experience in leading business development and employer engagement teams to the College. Prior to moving into education, Alex spent 12 years in the retail and technology sector with market leaders in their sectors Specsavers and Dyson, working across a range of account management and business development roles. Alex holds a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Business Management. His previous role in education includes a five-year period as Head of Business Development at one of the largest colleges in the South West. As a result, Alex has extensive Apprenticeship, Commercial, Traineeship, Work Experience and industry Placement knowledge which will further support the Colleges ambition to meet our local employer needs whilst also raising our learner's attainment and ambitions. During his education role, Alex worked with some of the largest employers in the country including the NHS, Babcock, Hobbycraft, DSTL, Chemring Countermeasures, MoD, Dyson and numerous Councils. 

Alex is extremely proud to be part of the forward-thinking innovative and passionate Yeovil College team and is looking forward to working with all communtiy stakeholders to provide a leading experience for our students, employers and everyone else associated with the College.
