Event Description:

Are you a Business Professional at the start of your career? Join us for our next SYP event of the year.

What are the Somerset Young Professionals events?

The aim of these events is to encourage professional networking and relaxed socialising for younger business professionals in Somerset. While older members of the business community have already established their network of contacts and regularly attend business functions, we recognise that there isn't much aimed at younger or more junior professionals at the beginning of their careers. These events are a great opportunity for personal and professional development in a casual environment. 

This is the chance to start building networks and confidence in a relaxed environment. We begin with a short icebreaker for all attendees, to make sure that everyone gets to know each other. We understand that it can be daunting coming along to these events alone, so we allow companies to book on up to 4 employees to each of these events.

This month's topic will be looking at leadership in the workplace, and how leadership is needed in any role, regardless of status. We will be joined by guest speaker and Director of charity School in a Bag, Luke Simon.

Luke has previously been an expedition leader and started up the charity School in a Bag with the intention to help poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world. He will be discussing the importance of leadership and sharing his own experiences. Leaders set the tone more than anyone else on a team, department or organisation, and their attitude is contagious, this presentation will demonstrate how you can be a leader no matter on your position within the organisation.
