Our Young Executives group held an informal drinks gathering at the Telegraph Pub in the City. The Spring Gathering followed the successful launch of the YE group on 28th January and continued to showcase the dynamism of our newest sub-group.
Guests had the chance to network and get to know fellow business leaders, potential business leaders, entrepreneurs and IoD City committee members. The setting was relaxed and convivial with discussion ranging from the latest start-up trends to innovation in fintech. Attendees ranged from young entrepreneurs to more seasoned industry experts, many of whom shared their knowledge and experience. Without any speakers for this event, it was focussed purely on conversing and getting to know one another. Many connections were made and business cards were exchanged.
We also took the opportunity to reinforce - or rather deregulate - our dress-code, which is to reflect our diversity and inclusivity. Our members are essentially encouraged to wear whatever they would have worn to work that day, opening up the group to many members of the tech sector, many of whom are actively discouraged from wearing the traditional suit and tie. Attendees to our Young Executives events are now usually seen wearing everything from business wear to something more casual.
