OXFORD ALUMNI CHAPTER

 

Chapter Introduction

A warm welcome to the Oxford Alumni Chapter. The chapter is recently formed (May 2020) and is now working as a small committee (with support from the Oxford Brookes Alumni office) to grow the alumni network in Oxford. We look forward to growing the connections through a series of events and activities over the coming years in the Oxford area.

Our LinkedIn page will be the online home of the chapter so please do follow us for the latest updates and news. We would also ask that you share this page amongst alumni friends and colleagues and also please do take the chance to introduce yourself to members of the group.

Daniel O'Discroll

Chapter Leader

I graduated from Oxford Brookes in 2006 where I studied Economics & Business BA (Hons). I went back to Oxford Brookes in 2020 to study a postgraduate qualification in executive coaching and mentoring. I work as a consultant and executive coach running Engagement Consultancy. I work with not-for-profit and higher education institutions on audience engagement, strategic planning and learning & development. Prior to running my consultancy I worked in various senior leadership roles at University of Birmingham, Oxfam and the Royal Bank of Scotland. I live with my wife and twin boys in Oxfordshire.

Placi Espejo

Events Lead

I graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 2000 and really wish to showcase the excellent learning environment at the university. I want to enable Alumni from the university to connect with each other as I believe that real connections are invaluable for businesses and their individuals. I have worked on local economic development, tech transfer, global programmes promoting entrepreneurship and establishing new commercial eco-system nurturing innovative companies. I am a mentor with entrepreneur societies, local accelerators and schools and a Deputy Chairwoman for Oxfordshire Business First. I love the buzz of making a difference by supporting entrepreneurship.

Joseph Parton

Engagement Lead

I graduated with a History degree from Brookes in 2014, and immediately took on an internship within the University's Alumni Relations team. Since then, I have stayed local to Oxford, other than a brief stint in London working for an international payments company. Most recently, I worked as the Partnership Manager for one of Oxford's largest international summer schools, Oxford Royale Academy, a role which involved regular and varied global travel. Like many others, I have found myself placed on furlough during the Covid-19 pandemic, but have kept busy by volunteering with a range of charities, including as a delivery driver for the local food bank.
