The free-to-join Young Professionals’ Group is open to anyone under 37 and designed to foster practical skills and business knowhow across a range of disciplines. The informal initiative will also develop links and commercial prospects between likeminded individuals. The group will host a series of cross-profession networking and training events, starting in February, and organisers said plans were underway to secure a number of exciting high profile guest speakers.
Laura Jackson, Partner at BDO Northern Ireland said: “Like most local companies, we strive for excellence and opportunities to grow, develop and harness emerging talent within our ranks. Half of our partners joined us as graduates and have forged outstanding careers. We’re pouring our experience and approach into the Young Professionals’ Group so a lot more young talent in a range of sectors and disciplines can move through the gears. When people meet and share ideas, great things can happen. People coming together through this group will find support to help them grow and develop in their careers. We recognise that links made within network have the potential to help shape business decisions in the years to come. The Group is opportunity to meet people from across all sectors, and learn and develop new ideas through creative conversation and networking.”
The first four Young Professionals events have been scheduled for 2017 and the first event will be held on the 21st February with the following events taking place during May, September and November.
