  3. Our 'Networks' series of events provide an opportunity for members to share their approaches to managing successful employee networks and communities.  We usually invite a guest participant with relevant expertise to join us.  

All our events take place over lunchtime or breakfast and last approximately 1 hour with time for networking before the event.  Our events are held in the City and occasionally in the West End.
