My experience as a student member of IMI has been brilliant. I was previously the student representative and during my term, I found attending Council meetings and being part of the Institute very interesting. It was a great opportunity to meet other IMI members and I felt very welcomed throughout the whole experience. I would encourage all new student members to apply for this opportunity!

I presented as part of the New Voices at the Harrogate Conference in 2018. It was such a great experience and it really helped me overcome my fear of public speaking, as it is in such a supportive environment and the response I had was so encouraging. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has not presented before. Jess Leonard
