If you’re creative, entrepreneurial and bursting with big ideas, sometimes it’s worth sticking a middle finger up to ‘traditional routes’ and doing things your own way instead.

That’s why we’re so excited to announce that our next event is all about celebrating people who have, or are trying to, forge their own path.

Interested? Here’s five reasons why you don’t want to miss Go Think Big Innovators

1. The line-up

The one and only Monikah Lee will be joining us on the night to host the event and grill our incredible panel of creatives and tech whizzes who include…

2. The location

We’re heading to Shoreditch, the heart of London’s tech and start-up scene, and taking over the roof terrace of Hackney House to soak up the sun (and all of the career stories and advice, obvs).

3. The conversation

On the night, we’ll be asking our expert panelists to share their stories and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. We’ll be covering the highs and lows of going it alone, and asking our speakers to spill the secrets that have led to their success.

4. The contacts

After the panel there’ll be time dedicated to networking so that you can meet each of our panelists and ask them your questions. You’ll also get the chance to meet other like-minded attendees, and share your experiences and insights with each other.

5. It’s completely free!

We won’t charge you a penny to come along, so you’ve got nothing to lose! And, we don’t want to bribe you or anything, but we can confirm there will be snacks available.

This event is for people aged 18 and over. To find out more about the event and apply for the chance to come along, click here.
