Each speaker will share their own insights and will be able to answer any questions you might have. By having only 20 participants on this programme, we make sure that each of you will get the most out of this experience.

VISITS TO SECRET LONDON SPOTS
You’ll be able to see the best view of London from the top of a skyscraper; you’ll get to visit the most exciting exhibitions of the year, and you’ll discover where London’s creative community spends their free time.

After presenting certificates to each participant, we’ll have some drinks and a party.
