Weekly Newsletter #68: BYP is on the London Underground!




Hey BYP Network,


I hope you're having a great week. We're delighted to share that we're on the London Underground. You can now catch us at Canary Wharf, Liverpool Street, and London Bridge. Take a snap if you see us! 


We're also running a competition to celebrate. If you see our advert, share it on your social media and tag us on Twitter or InstagramThe first FIVE people to tag us will win free tickets to our BYP Senior Leadership Conference! 


We're now THREE WEEKS away from the Leadership Conference and we cannot wait to celebrate with you! We can't wait to share this journey with you - it's been a year of preparation and hard work for our biggest event to-date. 


We're delighted to have received so much recognition and attention, but what we're most excited about is our reception from our community. This conference is all about our community - it's about upskilling our workforce and uniting on a grand scale. We hope to share testimonials and to hear how much people benefit from our events and our network. 


Most of all, we want to share stories. One of our keynote speakers, Mike Sherman, who leads corporate, network and product strategy, new ventures and innovation at BT Group Plc; was speaking to me earlier this week. His journey has been a whirldwind - from launching his first c


ompany at the age of 23 and taking in $100 million in revenue to becoming Partner and Managing Director at the renowned Boston Group - these are essential stories that we need to hear and learn from. 


It's going to be a day of learning, growing and coming together, and it's a historical moment for all of us! 


A huge shout out has to go to our team who have worked tirelessly on making this the huge event it is, our fantastic sponsors who have backed us and our mission, the brilliant corporations who are supporting their colleagues and buying tickets, and most of all, to all our supporters. We're set to sell out over 800 tickets so THANK YOU! 


Being featured on the London underground marks a big moment for us. In one of the world's most multicultural cities, you can see our network - what we're about, what we stand for and why you should be a part of it too.  


See you at our conference!
