Tomorrow’s business leaders and decision-makers met for the latest Young Networking Group event at Sheffield Tap.

With beer flowing, shots being taken and conversation buzzing, the YNG team were pleased to say the evening had been a great success! After a hard days work, it’s always nice to kick back with a drink or two, so Wilson Field were very happy to play host to some of the best and brightest in the finance sector.

The idea for the Young Networking Group came from Wilson Field and has been running for about two years attracting 40-50 people to each social event which ranges from pizza making to casino visits and cocktail making.

The latest event was a beer tasting session at Sheffield Tap attended by companies including Wake Smith Solicitors, DLA Piper, Shorts Chartered Accountants, Cirrus, CRS and DLP Planning.

One of the organisers, Brogan O’Callaghan from Wilson Field, said; 

“We have found a way to introduce, and build, relationships between the younger element of professional people working in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire through relevant, fun and interesting social events.

“Our intention is to allow people to become familiar with networking, grow their confidence and share their experience, so they can connect with others and feel supported.”
