"I found Corporate & Cocktails a few years ago, when I became a stand-alone HR Manager for an SME, having worked for much larger organisations, and been part of bigger HR teams. It’s lovely and informal, and I always meet someone new to chat to. By 5:30pm to have a cocktail, great people and a good speaker waiting is fantastic! I highly recommend this networking group for friendly, genuine contacts."

" Corporate and Cocktails is unique in that it offers opportunities for professional development and learning, alongside an informal and relaxed approach to networking. Not forgetting the cocktails!"
“Corporate cocktails has become my favourite HR networking group quite simply because of the format and the atmosphere which is informative, warm and friendly. Many events of this type turn into a commercial opportunity for sellers to HR professionals. What sets Corporate Cocktails apart is that the content is put together as a knowledge sharing session and not a sales pitch. If you're interested in finding peers to hear their opinions and share ideas, this is the perfect event to do so…”
" I met Andy on LinkedIn last year and was intrigued by a networking group that seemed to offer both a professional and social side. Since then I have attended several Corporate & Cocktails events – including the sub-groups for independent HR Consultants. The events have always been interesting, with stimulating conversations and a mix of HR backgrounds. In addition, the online discussion boards on LinkedIn are a really useful way to gauge opinion, find out what other companies are doing and seek advice. I’ve also used the forum to advertise HR roles. C&C is the only networking group of its kind and I am delighted to be involved. Thank you Andy!"
"I found C&C 3 months ago, since joining I've had more support than I ever knew was out there. I'm early on in a challenging HR role with lots of new challenges. Having a community I can ask any question to, and get a host of HR experts take on is worth it's weight in gold. I can't wait to go to more events"
" I have not long been a part of the Corporate and Cocktails group but I have been impressed how their events stand out from others that I get invited to. Firstly the topics covered always seem relevant and interesting. The speakers are informative and entertaining. Secondly the group is always friendly and welcoming and the cocktails certainly help with that.
The events are informal but have structure and there is plenty of opportunity to network and meet new people. I'd be happy to recommend this to HR folk who want a change form the old routine"

"I attended my first Corporate and Cocktails event last week. It was a lively and well supported evening with an interesting topic, well presented with lots of time to network and meet fellow practitioners afterwards over drinks and snacks. Despite having to travel into London from Essex for the event it was worth it and I shall be coming along to future events. Thanks for organising a great evening"
