About this Event

About this Event

The Huddersfield Professionals network was created in Spring 2019. Since this time, it's grown and become a vibrant and valuable network, with a great mix each time of both new and returning members.

In November, we won't be having a guest speaker, but will take the opportunity to reflect on the HPN, and have some activities around the room to give feedback, put in requests for next year and volunteer to take a more active role. Mostly it will be about connecting with people you've met at the events, or meeting new people and enjoying an evening together.

Description

The Huddersfield Professionals Network is an opportunity for people to meet up cross business/industry and learn from each other. Each session has a different topic of conversation. This is a great way into networking for people who haven't done much before, or aren't sure what to expect.

We're hosted at Arcade Cafe, a local business located in the beautiful Byram Arcade. The session will be informal and Arcade Cafe serves both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

Please follow our organiser page for notifications of next events.

If you have any questions about our events, or any feedback please contact our organiser Jessica Lockwood at Huddersfield.professionals@gmail.com

About our Team (a note from Jess Lockwood)

I can't say how proud I am of the Huddersfield Professionals Network. I was looking for exactly this kind of event in Huddersfield, where I could make some connections, learn about other roles, businesses and points of view. When I couldn't find it, I set myself a challenge to create it.

I'm so proud of what we have achieved in 2019 and the way the network has grown. The connections I've seen formed and the new people I've been able to spend time with has really shown me this was the right thing to do.

This will be the last session until 2020, and at HPN we'd like to take the opportunity to recognise some of the people who have made the Huddersfield Professionals Network a success.

Amber, Blythe and Thomas from Arcade Cafe - without the support from this fantastic independent business we wouldn't have been able to get this free event started. Thank you from all of us for the space and the great range of cakes and drinks which keep us going!

Abigail McAlpine, Michal Thomas Czerniak, Simon Taylor, Ann Franssen, Sarah Lockwood and Vikki Bassek - our guest speakers from 2019. Thank you for your engaging sessions and for being generous with your time.

Richard Caufield - thank you for the free use of your images of our wonderful town. They remind us all of our roots which connect us.

All our attendees and supporters over the year - Thank you so much. We couldn't have created this without you. Thank you to everyone who's been sharing out posts and attending the meet up's - either once, or every time. Thank you for being open and for sharing your experiences. Thank you for making connections and giving as much as you take from the network.

Event agenda:

6:00pm – Welcome from Jess, sign in, grab a drink and networking!
