Even though these guys are in their particular fields, it doesn’t mean that we can’t learn from them and use them in our own specialisms.

This is open to EVERYONE that’s interested in either progressing their career or looking to network with professionals to gain knowledge and advice. We’re especially interested in meeting other professionals from different sectors so we can host events for a variety of industries.

There’s no cost to the event, just bring yourself with an ambition of progression.
