Young professionals stage networking event

Have your say

Sheffield’s young professionals are launching a new monthly networking event tonight, called The Happening at The Hop.

The meeting, at The Hop real ale and music venue, in the West One complex, off West Street, is the brainchild of JCI Sheffield the personal development organisation for young business people in the city.

The organisation, which was named the most outstanding chamber in the UK, last year, has high hopes that The Happening will be a major success, after boosting membership by 150 per cent.

New president, Sandra Pilarczyk, said: “We always enjoy a healthy turnout to every JCI event, so we hope this monthly ‘Happening’ will be a success.

“Last year was a phenomenal year for JCI and the volume of new members joining the team is very encouraging. It shows how important our organisation is for the development of young professionals in Sheffield.”
