The conference also has speakers from companies such as Unilever. You can do a simple background research on these by doing a company/organisation search in the ABI-Inform and EBSCO databases.

Our top tip for using Alumni Library Online (ALO)
We’ve only mentioned a few of our online resources here today – there are many more listed on the portal. Don’t be put off by the name of the database, thinking that it’s ‘only’ an engineering or management database. Most of them have a surprisingly wide coverage so try searching for your chosen topic in all of them - you might be very pleasantly surprised by the results that you find!
