Meet other business professionals in a friendly environment
12:00 The Mikado, our unique networking workshop, opens the afternoon. It offers a mix of one to one discussions, tips, and a chance to ask for help, advice or specific introductions.
12:45 At our pre-lunch Drinks Reception, 30 minutes of open networking offer the chance to meet or catch up with more exceptional people.
13:15 A superb 3 course meal with wine is served. With planned seating and small tables, there are more opportunities for introductions and discussion.
14:30 (appox) We have first-rate speakers who share their knowledge with us. The talks are like mini master classes and you can always take away a little nugget of information.
We meet at the beautiful Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane in London.
With its elegant rooms, delicious food, and central location, it provides the ideal environment for a relaxed meeting.
The service is impecable, and the ambience is relaxed.
We have a terrific variety of speakers from the world around us, and not just business. In the past year alone, we've had someone from a think tank, a foremost economist, an artist, restaurateurs, an aquaculturalist, and a scientist who grows marijuana for a living.
Here is who we have lined up for the coming months:
April 12 - Andrew Priestley
May 10 - Kresse Wesling MBE
June 14 - Patrick Dunne
NON-MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND TWICE
