NETWORKING DIFFERENTLY: Presented by Panimo
facilitated by Jodi Rabinowitz and Jack Walton
So many people in the creative industry rely on networking as a major contributor to getting jobs.

We want to help make networking easy and getting jobs as a creative that little bit easier.
Come to our first event where we celebrate the importance of creative work and meet new people.
