Bank Holds Sixth Annual Butterfield 411 Student Networking Event

The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited (“Butterfield”) yesterday
held its sixth annual ‘Butterfield 411’ Student Networking Event at the Bermuda Society of Arts in City Hall.


The objectives of the Butterfield 411 are to create opportunities for local high school graduates and
college/university students by helping them to make important business contacts and develop their networking
skills.


Donna Harvey-Maybury, Butterfield’s Executive Vice President, Human Resources said Butterfield 411 is
designed to get young Bermudians thinking about the importance of networking.


“This year we encouraged the students to ’bank on their opportunities’ and offered advice about how to make
the most of career opportunities after graduating into a challenging job market,” Donna said. “Each year, this
event is organised by Butterfield’s talented group of Management Trainees, so it really is an event run by young
people, for young people.”

After hearing talks by Donna and Curtis Dickinson, Executive Vice President, Wealth Management, 411
attendees participated in a short networking game where students earned ‘dollars’ by impressing Butterfield
staff with their speed-networking skills.

Alisha Jones was the first student to collect 25 ‘dollars’ and won a 12MP Nikon digital camera. Ty’esha Oswald
was the second student to cash in and received a $75 Phoenix Stores voucher.

The evening was brought to a close by Bradford Kopp, Butterfield’s President & Chief Executive Officer who
emphasised the importance of choosing an employer where there is a breadth of opportunities and where there
is a fit with the candidate’s aspirations.
