SOLD OUT: Meet the Network Event

'Meet The Network' is an opportunity to connect with at least 15 new people, 
in a relaxed yet structured setting, who want to help make your New Year’s 
resolutions a reality.

Still need inspiration to join us? Hear directly from those 
who have attended previous events: 

“It seems to me this is a necessary lifeline for all NZ women 
living and working in the UK. I was impressed by the high level 
of conversation and critical thinking in the audience. Nice to be a part of it.” 

“The network provides a unique opportunity to interact with 
a range of wonderful, welcoming, women who have a 
‘can do’ attitude.” 

“Wish I’d known about the network sooner! It was a 
fantastic evening and great to meet kiwi women with similar 
experiences trying to get on in Britain.”
