ILP to resume How To Be Brilliant sessions

(UK) – Support sessions return for lighting students as ILP How To Be Brilliant team announces partnership with Bega.

The Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP) has announced plans for the return of its How To Be Brilliant series – designed to attract students, interns, apprentices and new entrants to the lighting profession.

The How To Be Brilliant initiative seeks to connect the lighting community, giving junior members of the industry the chance to connect with an inspiring expert who will talk about lighting in a way that formal education doesn’t necessarily cover. The 2021 series of fun and friendly, digital CPD events has been sponsored by Bega.

The first session will be How To Be Brilliant at Telling Stories With Light, given by lighting designer David Gilbey, Founder of d-lighting, on 1 March at 13:00 GMT.

Michael Wilson, Bega UK Managing Director, commented: “We are thrilled and proud to become a part of the How To Be Brilliant team. The work the ILP does to support and inspire new generations of lighting designers is important to the whole industry, and aligns with the Bega ethos and dedication to long-term sustainable practices. Our commitment to How To Be Brilliant strengthens our relationship with the Institution as a Premier member, and builds on the volunteering experience our staff have within the ILP community.”

Jess Gallacher of the ILP added: “How To Be Brilliant is a wonderful way for our charity to share knowledge about better lighting and nurture career development. The initiative started in 2014 and over the years, we have helped students blossom and become established in successful careers. It’s great news that we can now bring back and continue this work despite the effects of the pandemic, with online sessions including CPD talks and networking. We are delighted to have the support of Bega in bringing the lighting community together in a friendly and supportive way.”
