Coventry’s Young Professional!
Brian Coleman, a senior administrator based in our Coventry office, has recently assumed the role of Chairperson of the Coventry & Warwickshire First Young Professionals Committee for the coming 12 months.
Brian has been involved with the Young Professionals (“YP”) group for the past few years and was keen to take on the role of Chair when the opportunity arose.
The YP group comes under the main body of Coventry and Warwickshire First, a networking forum for professional and financial service providers in the region. The group exists to promote and assist the younger professionals to develop their networking skills and build a pool of contacts in the local business and professional community, especially amongst their peers. The group aims to provide a relaxed forum for those young professionals to begin their networking.
The YP committee works to facilitate this by organising regular and varied events over the year which includes seminars, socials and informal networking events, the backbone of which is ‘Thirsty Thursday’, an informal monthly get together held on the first Thursday of every month at a venue in Coventry or Warwickshire.
Brian says, “The informality and regularity of the Thirsty Thursday is key and I would like to see that the first Thursday of every month becomes a standing event in the diaries of young professionals in the area.”
The BRI Coventry office is pleased to support Brian and the YP group throughout the coming year as we recognise the important work that the group does in promoting the future business leaders and the emerging young professional community.
