Urbano Engage - Business

Urbano is London's leading independent business networking community, connecting companies of all sizes and sectors from PLCs to SMEs, in London, the UK and beyond.

Urbano hosts a calendar of different events each week, from speaker breakfasts to seminars and workshops, networking lunches and evenings, designed primarily to bring together those representing companies from our different business Communities: Build, Media, Finance, People, Host, Tech, and UWACTE (Urbano Women In Architecture, Construction, Technology and Engineering).

Urbano Engage Speaker Panel events look at major issues facing businesses, from reducing our impact on the environment and delivering on Net Zero Carbon legislation and the environment to the benefits of new technology on specific sectors, to encouraging SMEs into the supply chains of larger organisations to HR and employment issues. Our overall focus is to shine a light and lead a way for us all to be better business people and do the right thing for ourselves as business leaders, our companies, our employees and the wider society.

How to start and grow your own company - lessons we have learned

Timings: 11:00 - 12:30pm

As Covid sees a lot of people appraise what they want from their working lives - or have had this decision forced up them - we want to help those starting their own companies to learn from the experiences of a wide range of Urbano Members who founded and now own succesful companies from across all sectors.

Mark Herring, Urbano's Connector-In-Chief, will be asking each of them to share the key points on their growth journey and share this information with you. He will also ask questions submitted by participants.

Book this free event and make sure the first steps you take as new entrepreneurs are the right ones!

Our Urbano Member speaker line-up includes:

Arit Eminue, Founder/Director of recruitment and training company DiVA Apprenticeships

Elle Moss, Founder/CEO of creative agency Drew London

Brant McNaughton, Managing Director of web development agency Ecce.

Louise Turley, Director of high-end commercial and residential designs at FT Architects

Jess James, Director of dynamic sustainability consultancy JAW  

This panel event will be facilitated by Mark Herring, Urbano's Connector-In-Chief.  To date, Urbano has organised over 500 events, nearly all hosted and facilitated by Mark, instigating conversations and connections between thousands of companies across all sectors to create value exchange and opportunities.


More about Urbano Network 

Since Urbano began in 2011, we have had a proud track record of championing opportunities for women, especially in historically male dominated industries and sectors, such as construction and engineering. To develop deeper connections between women in SMEs and larger companies: UWACTE (Urbano Women In Architecture, Construction, Technology & Engineering*) where women in Urbano member firms can develop and enhance their connections across our network.

As part of our proactive approach to helping members find new business opportunities, we send out a weekly Tenders & Opportunities Notice gathered from over 100 keywords relevant to our pan-sector membership (Build, Finance, Host, Media, People & Tech). For the latest list, please click here: Tenders @ Urbano
