Network Natter text with cup of coffee

Scotland Branch Network Natter

Sign up for a digital coffee break with Scotland members on Tuesday 5th July, from the comfort of your own home. We all miss the general chatter over coffee at in-person events, so here’s the next best thing!

We know that our members are still facing a number of challenges at the moment and along with general networking we’d like to hear how you’re doing, if the Network can help in any way and how your projects are going. Do also tell us about any successes you’ve had in recent times!
