INSOL Europe: Summer Speed Networking

INSOL Europe: Summer Speed Networking

Zoom Meeting
Time: 17:00 – 18:00 CET
Platform: Zoom Meetings
Cost: Free
Type of event: Virtual networking
Who can attend: Members of INSOL Europe

After the recent successful networking event for our Young Members Group, we are very pleased to announce that we have decided to open this up to all members of INSOL Europe!
The event will take place on the evening of Thursday 17 June, and will be free to members on a first-come-first-served basis, limited to the first 100 applicants.

Using the concept of ‘speed dating’ each attendee will have the opportunity to take part in 5 private (one to one) live video conversations with other members of INSOL Europe. Each conversation lasts approximately 6 minutes before you are automatically moved onto the next conversation. This format is designed to accelerate business contacts during a time whereby we are unable to travel.
Guests are encouraged to bring along a glass of their preferred wine/beer/soft drink from their fridge and tune into the session from the comfort of their home or office.
As each conversation is relatively short, it’s useful for each attendee to prepare an “elevator pitch” so they can quickly provide a clear summary of who they are and their area of expertise.
Please contact Event Manager Harriet Taylor for more details.
We look forward to seeing you online!
This networking event is kindly sponsored by Edwin Coe LLP.
