Merton Chamber of Commerce and Love Wimbledon’s WYPG 24th May
Thank you to those who attended our second Wimbledon Young Professional’s Group event of 2018, on the 24th May at Made in Italy.
Despite the sun not actually making an appearance for us, we had a great mix of professionals turn up from across the borough and surrounds. From Solicitors, to Marketeers, to Musical Directors in the West End, and everything else in between. It was a great atmosphere and we have had very positive feedback of connections and leads made, which is fantastic and exactly what WYPG is for.
Guests were welcomed by Merton Chamber’s newly appointed chair, John Merriman, encouraging guests to enter their business into this year’s Merton Best Business Awards, as he is a previous award winner of two categories himself, and could vouch for the huge advantages his business has gained since his award win! He encouraged attendees to keep up to date with both Merton Chamber and Love Wimbledon, to make the best use of all of our valuable connections and opportunities for business in Wimbledon and borough wide.
We then heard from Love Wimbledon’s Katie Owen about the exciting things coming up in the town centre during the tennis fortnight with the Big Screen returning and straight after, back by popular demand, the Summer Sit Out kicks off for 3 weeks. She also reminded attendees to remember to OPT-IN to stay in touch with Love Wimbledon and to apply for your Privilege Card if you work in Wimbledon and you’ve not got one already.
The speeches ended with Jordan Clark of Morrisons Solicitors, our sponsor for the event, giving a bit of background to the great work that Morrisons do and their continued support of WYPG since they handed it over to us in the summer of 2017.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Morrisons Solicitors again for their generosity, supplying the bar tab and delicious pizzas throughout the evening.
Watch this space for the next WYPG event which will be late July, early August and do invite your colleagues to come along.
