Urbano is London's largest and leading independent business networking community, connecting hundreds of member companies of all sizes and sectors in London and beyond. Our events are all designed to be catalysts to connections and opportunities, bringing together as wide a range of businesses as possible.

Our event with Ann Pickering should be of particular interest to companies and individuals in our People or Tech Communities - HR and employment specialists and advisors, recruiters, providers of mobile and digital services, workplace and wellbeing experts, leadership and management specialists, training and development - or those looking to generate business connections with such companies*.

If you or your company or your clients have an interest in how to encourage diversity in its workforce and workplace, how technology is changing recruitment, how mobile will change its operations, or you believe you offer such companies the tools to help them react to the future of a digital workplace, book this event!

* Or you may be a business with a focus on pitching your services to large corporates like O2. Why not meet over coffee?


Our speaker at this event is Ann Pickering, CHRO and Chief of Staff at O2 (Telefónica UK) .
