Purpose of the Group
While older members of the business community (i.e. BBBF) have already established their network of contacts and regularly attend business functions, we recognised that there was nothing really aimed at younger or more junior professionals at the beginning of their careers. Furthermore, we felt that it was imperative that each and every one of one of those Young Professionals (YP) was able to equip themselves with a professional network that will be of assistance to them as they progress up the career ladder.
We aim to put on a number of social and professional networking events to give YPs the opportunity to meet on a fairly regular basis in a friendly environment with members of the BBBF and invited guests so that they extend their network but also learn from senior business community. The Young Professionals SIG was set up in 2015 by young professionals, for young professionals.
