    INFLUENCERS AND INNOVATORS PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING EVENT


    Join our exclusive London networking event for professional people sharing interests, experiences and ideas.

    Attend this event if you want to meet people from a range of industries across the city and grow your social and professional network.

    Networking events can be a great way to either grow your business or professional network but it does take time. The grand surroundings of The Hilton London Tower Bridge Hotel offer attendees an informal opportunity to build and strengthen their professional network, with a reserved space where you can sit and exchange ideas, information and resources.

    An optional (one minute) pitch followed by free-flowing networking activities will allow you to have conversations with others and build connections instead of just collecting business cards! This set up might not mean instant leads but it is a great way to allow for collaboration and discussion where genuine professional partnerships can be made.

    There are no restrictions on the number or type of industry that people work in but registration is important for us to get feedback and continually improve the events we arrange. Drinks and nibbles are complementary.

    NETWORKING TRAINING: HOW TO WORK A ROOM


    Hate the thought of networking? Want to learn how to get the results you need from the events you attend?

    Walking into a room full of strangers can be daunting for most people - even 'seasoned' networkers! For many, the fear of networking at events stops them attending or has them standing unsure at the edge of the room, missing out on expanding their professional network, or raising their personal profile and the profile of their business.

    Change your perspective and improve confidence with our invaluable 'How To Work A Room' workshop, a must attend event if you are a new networker, or looking to become more effective. The training, which includes an interactive Q&A session, aims to remove barriers and eliminate fears by providing focus, practical tools, tips and relevant techniques, with content being shaped by participants' questions and concerns.

    Following the training, you can practise your newly acquired skills over a light supper with up to 50 other participants.

    Workshop Leader Heather White, Networking Architect, Smarter Networking
    At etc.venues Fenchurch Street, Fenchurch Place, London EC3M 4PB
