On 2nd December we held our ‘soft launch’ and first ‘unofficial’ gathering of the newest special interest group of the IoD City of London branch.
Our Young Executives networking Christmas drinks preceded the official launch of the group, due to take place on 28th January. The event was kindly sponsored and hosted by the co-working providers WeWork, who provided us with their facilities in Spitalfields.
Attendees were welcomed with a short introduction delivered by the chair of the group Christian Strand. The YE group aims to gather a collection of young influencers, would-be leaders and more seasoned executives who want to share experiences and take part in discussions, mentoring and networking. As our branch covers both the City of London and Canary Wharf we hope that the group will attract talented individuals from a variety of sectors ranging from the most long-established financial institutions to the newest dynamic start-ups.
Christian also highlighted the fact that the YE group dress code will be relaxed, ranging from business wear to informal clothing, essentially reflecting what would have been worn by the attendee to work that day. The aim is to make the group accessible to all sectors.
As well as beer, wine and soft drinks there was a selection of finger food and our ever-popular members business card draw for a bottle of Champagne.
