The Best Student Life. Bristol SU

Committee Fest is Bristol SU's annual training event for incoming committee members. Our sessions will help you develop as a leader and provide excellent experiences to your members throughout the year. This year our training will take place virtually and will be open to all committee members no matter your role. 

Can't make it?

We'll be hosting lots more sessions at the start of term and throughout TB1. We'll also be uploading session recordings where appropriate and hosting them on this page, so check back after the event!

Bespoke Treasurer Support

Feedback from outgoing Treasurers has highlighted that one-to-one support alongside the mandatory incoming treasurer training is much more effective than large training sessions. This is why you won't find any Treasurer specific training in the timetable above, if you would like support understanding financial processes or developing a budget please email to book a session with one of the team.
