Informal networking events




We hold numerous work-related and social events during the year, encouraging members of the WMS community to take time out of their day to get to know their colleagues, build relationships and develop a sense of collegiality without relying on social activities outside of core working hours.

  • 3C (Coffee, Cake and Catch-Up) meetings
    These very popular meetings are hosted every month by sub-groups within our divisions, with members taking it in turns to bring in homemade cake and other bakes for everyone to enjoy.

  • Colleague Catch-Ups
    Held every few months, these relaxed networking sessions bring together colleagues from across the School. At some of the sessions we invite speakers from other teams or other parts of the university (such as the Arts Centre or Warwick Retail) to come along to talk to us.
  • Summer BBQ
    Every summer, staff and PhD students are invited to take the afternoon away from their desks and come along for a complimentary barbecue lunch, which features activities including a quiz, rounders and outdoor board games.

  • Christmas Party
    In December, we organise a staff celebration for our colleagues to relax and catch up with colleagues over some refreshments, festive music and a quiz.

  • Game Show Jamboree
    First held in 2017, our Game Show Jamboree sees teams of staff and students come together to go head to head in a series of quizzes based on the format of popular TV gameshows. Our reigning champions - a team of MB ChB students - has won both of the events so far!

  • Leading Lights Lectures
    Professors within WMS are given the opportunity to give a lecture on their research for anyone from the school who wants to attend, as well as their own friends and family members. These popular lectures are a great way for other members of the WMS community to get to learn about research being conducted in the school and chat to those involved.
