The past two days have been a whirlwind of fun and excitement — so much so, that I am making up for lost time by combining days 5 and 6 in this blog. On Saturday, we had the opportunity to hear from a recent alum about her experience working for the Civil Service in England. Her work regulating nuclear threat reporting was extremely pertinent to recent events and was really interesting.
Hello! Today we visited Ernst & Young (EY) where Danya El Zein, a Denison alum from 2008, spoke to us about her role as a senior manager. She helps multinational businesses perform mergers and acquisitions and offered some insights about how to use a liberal arts education in the workplace. This visit was extra special as President Weinberg sat in on our session after arriving in London earlier in the week!
Hello, again! Today was another fun and educational day. This morning we were visited by Chrystal Denys who is a Commercial Specialist for the US Embassy in London. We learned a lot from her about how Brexit will affect businesses throughout the UK and the world as a whole. We then went to Macfarlanes and had lunch with Kelly Koltes who is a Denison alum.

We will be visiting several businesses and organizations such as the London Stock Exchange, the U.S.
