Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with Paul Tavner, from Mendeley's community team.

Paul will be joining us for dinner and then sharing some insights and tips on building and engaging a community within education, one of Mendeley's many strengths. There will be plenty of time for questions at dinner or in the Q&A.
