The Young Professionals networking event

Young professionals have come together at a networking event in Lichfield.

The event took place at Apres on January 28 and was hosted by SucceSS – the professional services arm of the Southern Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce & Industry – and was sponsored by Ansons Solicitors.

Louise Richardson, a solicitor with Ansons Solicitors and main host for the event said:

“It can be difficult to meet other young professionals, but this network provides the ideal framework and opportunity to do so.  Hosting the events at the Après bar also provides the ideal environment to meet in a relaxed and pleasant manner.”

Louise is handing over her role as host to Neil Faunch who will continue to build upon the work that Louise has put in to developing the network.

Neil added:

“I am delighted to be taking over the role and I am looking forward to hosting the next event”.

The next young professionals’ event will be held on April 29 at Apres from 6pm to 8pm. The event costs £10 plus VAT and places can be reserved by contacting the Southern Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce & Industry on 01283 713189 or emailing

Alternatively users of LinkedIn who want to keep up to date with the network can join the group and opt to receive event notifications. All you need to do is search for Southern Staffordshire Young Professionals Group and click the ‘join’ button.

    I’ll be staying away from meetings for young professionals who have difficulty meeting people.
