What to do in January 2021

We know you may be missing Socialising, Networking, or basically, just any form of human contact! The world of events has been completely turned upside down, with every event either becoming a Drive-Through or of course, through Zoom, MS Teams, Skype, the list goes on! Although it’s not the same, virtual events are still a great way of keeping connected and they offer you a form of escapism. For today’s post, we thought we would write up a little round up of all the virtual events taking place in January 2021!

What to do in January 2021 - New Year New You

The Learning Zone

Of course we had to start with a great event that Regent College London are holding. Created by The School of Computing & AI, the Learning Zone will feature monthly Guest Speaker events. We will be hosting guests from various industries to explore more about their life experiences, tips and tricks alongside a Q+A Session whereby attendees can ask to find out more! The sessions will take place at the end of each month, and we will be kicking off with our very first event on Friday 29th January 2021, from 5:00pm-6:00pm!

The first event features Tara McBride, whom has many years of experience within the IT Industry. Tara was previously the Head of Computing at a London University and is currently an IT Manager. Simply click this link to join: https://bit.ly/3oG6Gnf
