SHOUT Next Week: COT's Fiona Fraser on "50 Shades of Green"

Our February event is coming up next week so, just in time for Valentine's Day, we invite you to a racy talk from COT Education Manager (Student Services) Fiona Fraser.

'Fifty Shades of Green' on Wednesday 13th February 2013

About becoming an OT practitioner in today's tough climate, this talk is of particular importance to current students, those who have recently qualified and are job-hunting, and those considering occupational therapy education. So come along, and get your heart racing about OT...

About our speaker: 
Fiona decided she wanted to be an occupational therapist aged 13! Therefore, she was naturally very excited when she qualified from Cardiff University in 2001. Fiona initially returned to her roots in Somerset and worked in a variety of older adult mental health services. She then moved to Worcester to take up a senior post and made the shift to acute adult mental health.  
Fiona got involved in the work of her professional body soon after qualifying, as it was an excellent opportunity to network and ease her anxiety of being a new graduate. She helped organise her regional COT study events and got involved in the work of the regional committee.  Fiona took up her post at the College of Occupational Therapists in March 2005 - and still considers that she has the best job there. Her role is entirely focused on the potential and current student members of the organisation - ensuring that the professional body supports students throughout their journey into professional practice.  
Fiona completed her post-graduate MSc in Advanced Occupational Therapy last year. Although she is enjoying not having assignments at the moment she knows a PhD will appear in her career path at some point in the future...

To book your seat at this popular event please email and, unless you hear from us, assume your place is booked.
The event will take place in the Robert Winston Building at our Collegiate Campus. Registration and light refreshments are from 5.30pm. The talk begins at 6.00pm and SHOUT events usually finish before 7.30pm. 
Costs: £2.00 for students and BAOT members, £3.00 for non-members.
Following the event we will hold an informal reflection session 'Wednesday Wind Down' at a pub on Ecclesall Road. Join us there to discuss and tweet your thoughts on the talk content and how it may impact your practice.
