How exciting! This is our first London meet-up and it's all about YOU. You're not attending to represent your company or because you've been told you have to attend. This is all about a fun evening with a group of people who are just like you - they care about their careers and want to develop themselves further.
This evening will be an informal affair and will be about gathering suggestions on what as a group we would like to do for future events.
To get the thoughts and ideas flowing we will have two speakers:
Joe Twyman - Co-founder of YouGov and inspiring leader. Joe will give us a snapshot into his career so far, his experiences of setting up YouGov and how he has developed his career to get to a successful executive position.
Saffron Fidgett - Career Coach & founder of social enterprise Career Circus Ltd- welcome and introduction to the group
Throughout the evening there will be a 'career corner' where you can get your CV's critiqued or on the spot careers advice from Saffron (an experienced Careers adviser, recruiter and coach) so come armed with your CV and career questions if you would like to take advantage of this free advice. For those that are looking to set up their own business/go freelance or develop some additional skills we have our 'Skills Swap tree' where you can hang your business card on one of the branches and swap cards with other freelancers at the event.
Plus there will be lots of opportunity for you all to chat and de-stress after a days work with drinks from the bar, so all in all a fun and useful evening.
I hope you will be able to make it?
Spaces are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis, so RSVP asap, indicating if you would like to bring a friend/colleague along :)
Hope to see you on the 20th!
Best wishes, Saffron
