Urbano networking breakfasts give company directors, business owners, entrepreneurs, corporates, professionals and creatives across a range of sectors a chance to make connections, build associations, and learn from some of the UK's most informed and successful entrepreneurs, business people and cross-sector specialists.

Urbano speaker breakfasts are stripped down conferences, featuring great speakers, allowing attendees to discuss the issues featured in the guest presentation and plenty of opportunity to network with the speaker and the other attendees from all sizes and types of companies, from PLCs to SMEs.

Attendees will also have the chance to take a tour and hear first hand about their work with the University of London. This event is primarily aimed at professionals within the Architectural, Construction and Design sectors as well as HR and other employment/recruitment/talent management and retention professionals.
