London networking event - Urbano Networking Event with Daniell Morrisey

i2 Office - London Mayfair

i2 Office - London Mayfair

Urbano and its networking events' calendar is designed to be diverse and attract different audiences, often to the same event.

This event features Head of Talent at BBC Comedy and should appeal to those in the Media and People Communities.


Urbano Media events are aimed primarily but not exclusively at those in the creative sectors, such as advertising, branding, marketing, film, TV, visual and graphic, web and design industries - and also those who supply these sectors.

Urbano People networking events bring together companies and individuals across the HR, employment, management, recruitment, training and development sectors to expand their knowledge bases, and build connections and develop opportunities for themselves and their companies.

This event should appeal equally to those who are looking for freelance opportunities in production or scriptwriting, or for insight on managing a team of permanent and temporary contract employees (see below for Daniell's presentation theme).

Urbano connects every attendee at the event, facilitating introductions between those who didn't know they shared a client or sector in common.

He will look at the opportunities for smaller companies within the BBC and pass on his experience in HR and recruitment.
