It feels a bit mad that we are on the precipice of March already (where does the time go?!) but here we are on that strange day that pops up every four years. With spring so close we can almost touch it, let’s take a look at what’s coming up next week (and briefly touch on what’s happening in the rest of March too).
We have a two fantastic dinners lined up for Tuesday next week, the first being a fundraising dinner with Joe Krancki from Frog Capital, and the second is our women’s only dinner with Kathleen Saxton, founder of The Lighthouse Company. Read on to find out what you can expect at each one.
Dine with Joe Krancki – Partner at Frog Capital, on when he invests
Want to know what an investor looks for when they invest in entrepreneurs and companies? Of course you do! Our next fundraising dinner is with Joe Krancki, partner at Frog Capital, who will be giving us the inside scoop on what businesses get a big, fat yes from him and why.
At Frog Capital, the investment team focus mainly on innovative, rapidly growing companies who operate in dynamic markets. Since Joe joined them in 2009, he has sourced and worked on many of Frog’s investments, including EDITED and Rated People. So, what are you waiting for? Grab a seat at Joe’s table, share what you are currently working on, and meet your peers over a delicious meal and a glass of wine (or two!).
Dinner is at 6:45pm on Tuesday 8 March at The Happenstance, The City
Dine with Kathleen Saxton, founder of The Lighthouse Company & co-founder of Advertising Week Europe
As part of our Women’s dinner series, we have great pleasure in welcoming Kathleen Saxton to join us as our next after-dinner speaker. Not only is she the founder and Chief Executive of bespoke headhunting firm The Lighthouse Company, and co-founder of Advertising Week Europe, she also manages to find the time to offer her services as a pyschotherapist too.
Kathleen will be telling the story at our next ladies only dinner of a girl from Gravesend who scaled the heights of the advertising and media world before taking the entrepreneurial leap to launch her headhunting company. She will be sharing some of the most pertinent themes from this year’s newly released results from The Lighthouse Company’s annual New World Talent Survey, as well as some of the most enduring trends from the past couple of years.
Dinner is at 6:45pm on Tuesday 8 March at Jamie’s Italian Piccadilly, Soho
