Young Professionals
New site, new blog

Hi there young professionals

Welcome to your new blog page!

I’m Chrissie from the YP committee and I take care of all things marketing so I’ll be the main contributor to this blog.

We’ll be posting about a variety of relevant hot topics based on five main categories:

– Our events
– CPD and skills
– ‘Spotlight on’ interviews with both young and more senior (I’m trying to avoid saying older!) professionals to give you an insight into how they got where they are, and to help you get to know some of the faces you’ll see when you join us at one of our events
– News
– Topics requested by you

We hope the new blog will help you to get to know us and what we’re about, so you feel more comfortable coming along to one of our events for the first time. And if you’re already a veteran member, then we hope this blog will help you keep up-to-date, see photos from events you’ve attended and add some extra value to your association with Coventry & Warwickshire First Young Professionals.

It’d be great if you want to leave comments or even add to any of the posts we write. Two-way communications are definitely encouraged! If you’d rather contact us privately, then feel free to email me at or you can contact any of the other committee members and let us know if there’s anything you’d like us to post about.

I’ll finish off with a few memories from two of our most popular events from 2014 – the bowling social and the Christmas party. We hold socials roughly every quarter, which provide a great opportunity to make friends, in addition to the usual business networking. I’ve been involved with the YPs for about 3 years now and have been really surprised just how many people from the group I would now call friends as well as colleagues.

See you again soon,
