HOW IT WORKS

1. No need to book ahead, just turn up at 6.30pm (unless you need space for a larger community event/ meeting)

2. Tuck into your complimentary dinner

3. Join the quick hello and welcome led by the facilitator. Identify the people and projects you'd like to talk to – or share your own project.

4. Break into separate areas for events, co-working or networking:
