“It’s all about relationships”
EWL Club London is the founding branch of EWL (#Eventprofs Who Lunch) – the event industry’s boutique networking club – bringing like-minded event professionals together to develop their network, exchange information and debate business challenges.
Part of EWL Club (UK) which officially launched in January 2016, we held our first event in April 2015 with the aim of encouraging open dialogue around topical issues important to us as organisers and professionals in the events industry, and the ideal of un-networking – the art of leading with ourselves and not our business cards.
Our events are a break from the norm, relaxed and informal, open to both planners and suppliers – no shameless selling, no ego and no hierarchy! – and with limited numbers to encourage flowing conversation and discussion so we can get to know each other better.
We organise monthly mastermind lunches and coffee mornings centred on peer to peer knowledge sharing guest hosted by industry thought-leaders.
“A mastermind group is simply a meeting of highly motivated professionals who share a common goal and are looking to encourage and help each other improve.”
There’s no better way to un-network than over great food, in great surroundings, with great conversation. When you attend an EWL Club event you’ll enjoy and experience delicious food, in an exciting venue, whilst making great connections with your events industry peers.
Here’s what a few of our #Eventprofs have to say:
“Location, timings, topic and audience numbers all worked brilliantly and it was refreshing to engage, network and learn without the need for any hard sell in any capacity. Would definitely attend again and recommend.” – David Young | NFS Hospitality
“The EWL Club started in solid fashion and has quickly become a must-attend networking lunch. Helen has demonstrated an ability to bring together a number of high-profile industry experts for networking and valuable discussion on a diverse range of industry topics.” – Alan Newton | Eventopedia
“The EWL lunch was a great opportunity for me to network and get involved in an extremely interesting, topical debate about women in business, whilst enjoying a delicious lunch. I’m looking forward to future EWL events and being part of the expanding #eventprofs network.” – Sarah Netherway | ACT
“An excellent opportunity to network with your event peers in an informal and relaxed setting – and a great lunch too!” – Rikki Ellsmore | CIPFA
“I would highly recommend attending an EWL Club networking lunch. It was fantastic to meet like minded individuals, from across the industry, in a hand-picked venue. The conversation was really well structured and led by an expert moderator, so that topics discussed were relevant and informative. I’m looking forward to the next one!” – Anna Green | The Broadsword Production Group
“I really enjoyed the inaugural EWL Club lunch – great discussion, great food and great company. I’d highly recommend it to others.” – Jane Baker | 2Heads
