Ready to network? Make new connections at our IRL networking event

Join us at Creative Lives in Progress headquarters in Holborn, London, for a free, interactive workshop on making connections, followed by networking sessions. Register now for the chance to network and connect with fellow emerging creatives in a relaxed setting.

😖 Networking is a term that can make many of us shudder: bad jokes, name badges, forced or awkward conversation… but it doesn’t have to be this way!

😎 We’re back in June for another IRL networking event hosted at our very own studio in Holborn, London.

What to expect on the night:

  • Top tips on networking and making connections
  • The chance to meet fellow emerging creatives
  • Creative exercises to get involved in
  • An opportunity to ask creative career-related questions

The event is split into two parts. You can choose to attend one or both parts of the evening in our registration form.

Part 1: Workshop on networking and making connections (1 hour)
18:00 to 19:00 BST

If you’re new to networking, fear not. In this interactive workshop, we’ll be on hand to share some top tips on networking and meeting new connections. Together we’ll explore how and where you can reach out to new contacts, as well how to make the most of your existing connections.

19:10 to 21:00 BST

After a short introduction from our team, we’ll kick things off with a short warm-up exercise. Following this, you’ll have the chance to network in smaller groups throughout the evening.
