Tuesday, September 13, 2011 – 19H00-21H30 at KPMG
Welcome to a new season at our usual meeting place, KPMG offices in Lyon Vaise (51 rue St Cyr, 69009 Lyon)!
We will start our evening with our Annual General Meeting (which will take about 20 minutes).
- Progress report since the last AGM (8 June 2010)
- Financial report since the last AGM
- Plans for the 2011/2011 season
- Election of the WPNG Steering Committee (you need to be a paid 2011/2012 WPNG member in order to vote, so please pay now or bring your checkbook to the meeting)
Then we will give the floor to the organizing team of TEDxLyon, to tell us a bit more about this exciting event coming to Lyon on November 10, before we continue with our main topic of the evening, the N in WPNG… NETWORKING!
Do you consider yourself a great networker? Or do you think it’s more a necessary evil? And what exactly is your definition of networking…? This session will be led by WPNG’s own Marion Chapsal, business coach and blogger on women in management, and will focused on you and an opportunity for you to meet other WPNG members through more structured networking. We will discuss in small groups what networking is all about. What do you expect from it? What networking ‘tools’ do you use? What do you get out of it and… how do you profile yourself? Each group will summarize its findings after the discussions.
There should also be the opportunity to do ‘before’ and ‘after’ personal presentations so you can bring the things you’ve learned during the discussions into practice right away! A little preparation goes a long way! So come prepared – start thinking about the above mentioned questions – and don’t forget to bring your business cards!
Reminder: 2011/2012 membership fees are now due: please make out a check for 30€ to WPNG and hand it to our treasurer Marie-France Derderian, at the meeting. Alternatively you can post your check (the address can be found in our latest newsletter).
And please don’t forget to bring either a healthy snack or drink to the meeting. Home-made quiches, cakes and other dishes are always appreciated and the purchased varieties are welcome too.
