Event description


The Energy Institute London YPN is delighted to invite you to the first ever YPN.inspire conference.

Our event will be focused on delivering inspiring stories and thought-provoking presentations.

The full day conference will feature over 10 speakers, including a lawyer named as one of the 10 outstanding young people in London in 2013, an entrepreneur from the Forbes 30 under 30 list, the CEO of a company producing ground-breaking hybrid air vehicles, a renowned health and wellbeing coach and many others great personalities.

During the breakout sessions delegates will be able to enjoy exclusive art exhibitions by Aron Klein and Annette Taylor-Andersen. The event will conclude with a presentation by the winner of the YPN competition for the most inspiring story among our community.
