A face to face meetup for professionals living in Surrey, UK.

We get together ad hoc to chat about work – learning and development, marketing, business, HR, technology, career and all sorts of other things besides.

We are a group of, largely, L&D and HR professionals that meet up in a pub in Surrey. It’s a casual networking group that enjoy chatting and learning from each other. All are welcome!

To get involved, just email jo@lightbulbmoment.info and be included in the email list!
