Prof. Adrian Bell meets future ICMA Centre students in Beijing

The 32nd floor of the International Trade Centre in Beijing proved to be an excellent venue for the first welcome event for ICMA Centre students joining programmes in Reading in October 2013.

The view from CafeXplus was amazing overlooking the ‘giant underpants’ building and stimulated informative conversations between our new students and alumni from the previous two years of our programmes.

Professor Adrian Bell, Head of the ICMA Centre, who hosted the gathering answered questions about the ICMA Centre and Reading and promised the students an intensive and rewarding study experience. Getting a taxi home proved to be beyond Adrian, until rescued by his friendly future students!
