IBM Hursley Clubhouse

Cost:
This is a free event but numbers are restricted, as is security due to the clubhouse being a members only facility. Therefore booking is essential. Please also say when booking if you would like a discussion with a senior BCS member.

This is jointly with Hampshire Branch and BCSWomen.

Description:

Come along and meet your fellow professionals.

The first part of the evening will be structured short networking discussions, allowing you to meet a good number of people, and the second part will be freestyle to allow you to continue earlier discussions or start new ones!

The evening will start with a drink before the main Speed Networking session.

Speed Networking is a formalized way of networking where you will be organised into pairs and given 3 minutes to hold a conversation. At the sound of the bell one member of the pair will rotate round, so you have a new partner for the next 3 minutes. You will meet approximately 10 people in this way. This will be followed by informal networking where you can continue a conversation with someone you have already met, or meet someone new.

Throughout the evening there will also be BCS local Branch members, who are experienced in the BCS membership processes, on hand to answer any questions you may have on BCS applications, membership upgrades, including FBCS, also for CITP, CEng, CSci and EurIng.

If making use of the senior BCS members for advice a copy of your CV and your application so far will enable them to provide better targeted advice.

General enquiries are also welcome.

The Clubhouse serves food and drink, so please stay for the evening.

The clubhouse is open until 10.30pm if you wish to stay for a drink after the event.

If you wish to eat there is a varied menu available from the bar until 9pm.

If making use of the senior BCS members for advice a copy of your CV and your application so far will enable them to provide better targeted advice.
