Event description

Description

Book your seat for our June event.

Implementing good simple systems can take you a long way, whether it be in avoiding the misery and cost of a cyber-attack, or finding the right work life balance to be productive when working from home.

Delightfully, our speakers this month span both topics.

Cyber security risks – what do business owners need to know?
By Alex Stanier, IT services and security expert

In the past eighteen months, cyber attacks on SMEs have massively increased as “the bad guys” realise that rather than targeting the corporates who now have their IT security pretty well locked down, the SMEs who are growing through sapling stage (5 to 25 staff) have almost no awareness, and little or formally crystallised business processes.

In this session Alex will:

  • Explain the areas of cyber security risk that small business owners need to be aware of
  • Give you some pointers on how to reduce your risk of attacks.

Alex has runs IT services businesses for thirty years both in large organisations, including BBC Education and Olympic Broadcast Services and SMEs across multiple sectors.

How to organise yourself to achieve better outcomes
By Vicky Silverthorn, Organisation & Decluttering Professional

“It starts at home; if your home is in shape, other elements of your life will follow.”
Vicky will share her experience and top tips on how to be productive and implement practical simplistic systems to achieve greater efficiency and improve your work/life balance. Her talk is bound to give you new impetus in:

  • Keeping organised at home/work & keeping your home life separate
  • Recognising the importance of your work systems and what systems to have
  • Avoiding wasting time with unnecessary processes.

Vicky has appeared on ITV's This Morning numerous times and does frequent radio and media interviews. She is a published author - her book ‘Start With Your Sock Drawer’ was published in 2016 and a second edition is due to come out on audio books this summer.

Vicky started her first business in 2010. After ten years working as a PA for well-known names such as Lily Allen as well as professional sports people she decided that she wanted to concentrate on the area of Professional Organisation and Decluttering. Vicky finds herself inundated with requests from people wanting to get their homes in order.



+ Create your Vizzmee Video Business Card

On arrival all attendees will have the opportunity to create a video business card using the pioneering Vizzmee application, so it's easier to make connections and remember who you have spoken to. We can offer you this opportunity because Vizzmee founders, Adam Fillary and Ferenc Collins (https://vizzmee.com) are generously working with The London Group to pilot their new application.



Plus:

One minute Elevator Pitches and Business 2 Business
A chance to introduce yourself, pitch your business (if you wish) and outline business opportunities that may be of interest to other attendees.

Wine and refreshments
Arrive at 6 pm to network over a complimentary glass of wine at The Captain's Table in the Officer Mess on the lower deck of the Hispaniola - yes we meet on a ship moored on the River Thames!

This event is open to all - invite your colleagues, clients and partners.

If you are planning to join us, please book your ticket (annual members free, non-members pay £10 + Eventbrite fee, total £11.25 via Eventbrite or £15 on the door).

Location:

The London Group events are run monthly, usually on the last Wednesday of the month starting at 6:00 pm in the Officers Mess below decks on board the R.S. Hispaniola - the R.S. Hispaniola is a beautiful ship moored on the river Thames. Embankment is the nearest tube, exit riverside, cross the road, turn right and go under the bridge and it’s the first ship. From Waterloo it is a pleasant walk over the Hungerford Bridge.
