The British Computer Society's Young Professionals Group is taking social networking outdoors this summer following the resounding success of previous events such as FestiveNetworking and EasterNetworking. This is an opportunity to enjoy a few drinks and a barbeque whilst meeting the friendly faces of the YPG and people from other professions onboard a boat while cruising down the Thames. It is about networking with like-minded people interested in hearing what you do and why you do it; it is about bringing people together because effective networking means creating networks that are sustained by common interests.
As with all YPG events, you’ll find an open and relaxed environment in which to meet strangers and catch up with friends. You’ll get the chance to inter-connect over a barbeque with members from other professional and social groups, such as Women in Technology, the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators, the Law Society, Chartered Institute of Marketers, and many more. And, of course, there will be live entertainment throughout the evening in the form of The Fallen Heroes along with a cash bar.
The Young Professionals Group is part of the British Computer Society (BCS).
The BCS is the only Chartered Professional Institution for Information Technology (IT) and exists to provide service and support to the IT community, including IT practitioners and employers of IT practitioners. The Society also acts to generate public awareness and appreciation of the concomitant social and economic benefits IT.
