3. Why should I attend one of your events?
We offer a comprehensive programme of events, some of which are totally free of charge. For example, our regular monthly networking event Drinks with YEN is a free event where we give you the opportunity to meet up and bring people from both the public and private sector together in a relaxed, fun and friendly atmosphere. Unlike many other networking events you will have the opportunity to meet with some great people who simply want to expand their network and not sell you their services.
If you decide to become a member we offer an extensive events programme to include notable local speakers, training courses, seminars and coaching sessions.
