Career Speaker Series

From start-ups to STEM, law to medicine, TASIS England Upper School students have the opportunity to learn from experts in different fields.

The Career Speaker Series is brought to you by the TASIS Parent Association (TPA), together with the TASIS College Counseling and Marketing departments.

Our speakers share what inspires them, how they found their passion, and the realities of their profession. Students are encouraged to dialogue with our speakers and find out the "why" behind a variety of careers. The line-up for speakers is developed in collaboration with students and our community.
