SUSAN KENCH HOSTS THE MIKADO
We know how hard it is to enter a room where you don't know anybody so we make it easier for you. The time is built around a topic so that everyone moves around the room to discuss it. No awkward small talk required. It's a bit like speed dating for business and we have lots of fun doing it.
Susan Kench is a LinkedIn tutor and she will be giving us hints and tips as well as getting everyone talking.
In 2018 Steve found himself in the media spotlight when he discovered he had (completely unwittingly) become the face of an international online dating scam, after scammers stole and used photos from his social media profiles.
He now uses the extraordinary story, equally horrifying and hilarious, to educate people on how to protect themselves online – and how to turn even the strangest of circumstances into a business advantage.
Steve was named National Speaker of the Year in 2015 by the Professional Speaking Association, and is the author of two books, ‘The Authority Guide to Presenting and Public Speaking’ and ‘The Authority Guide to PR for Small Businesses’.
Steve started his career as a Broadcast Journalist for BBC TV & Radio News before running PR agency Vada Media for 11 years.

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.
In June, we will be meeting at
Simpson's in the Strand
London EC2R 0EZ
With its elegant rooms, delicious food, and central location, it provides the ideal environment for a relaxed meeting.
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:
June 13 - Steve Bustin on identity fraud
July 11 - Roger Bootle on the economy
August 8 - tba
