Well, that was interesting… and tiring, but never-the-less; FUN!
Six weeks ago when I decided to set up Let’s do Lunch: an Urban Girl’s Guide To Making Contacts – and Keeping Them, I hadn’t thought about exactly how I could extend it from just being a blog – into a brand or a business! It occurred to me that if I’m trying to find the answers to questions about making contacts, I’d have to put in the practice by organising my own events!
However, little did I imagine I’d be sharing my ideas of building a platform for students, recent graduates and young professionals to network and collaborate, with 4,000 students in one day so soon after creating it!
In collaboration with my role as LCC Officer, on Wednesday 30th Sept, I had the opportunity to talk to students about to embark on a new chapter of their lives by attending University of the Arts London, about how networking and showcasing their creative talents from an early stage will be beneficial for them. With events, socials, projects and workshops with a focus on networking being organised, it’s no surprise most students showed keen interest to be involved with “Let’s do Lunch – The Urban Guide Network“!
