We ask that the group is respected and members adhere to a number of simple rules:

  • The purpose of the group is to network or share business knowledge and information; all interaction should be based on this premise.
  • Members must demonstrate politeness and respect for each other, conducting themselves in a highly professional, honest manner at all times.
  • Any use of inappropriate language or harassing behaviour will result in removal from the group.
  • Alumni are welcome to post links to job vacancies at their companies, however the group is not a space to ask for jobs. Any such requests will result in the removal of the post and a possible block from the group.

"Properly employed, LinkedIn is an enabling medium. Businesses can inform of the services they provide, or seek the services they require. In addition, the more recent capability of LinkedIn permitting recommendations and skills endorsements has enabled me to e-publish recommendations for my students and alumni, which they can show to prospective employers and graduate programmes."
