This meetup is sponsored by the Society of Professional Consultants (SPC) and is open to members and non-members.
We'll have a short general session for everyone and then break out into small virtual meeting rooms. We'll all switch rooms after a few minutes so we get chance to carry on conversations with people we haven't met. You'll get a chance to make new connections and learn what's happening with your colleagues.
There's no registration fee to attend. We're limiting the meetup to 25 people so please register and save your spot. We hope you can join us!
