Networking is vital for personal growth, increasing your professional network and your knowledge. Two networking groups — the 21st century Marketing Meet-up and the historic Worshipful Company of Marketors.

Keith Rowland explains the fascinating history of Livery Companies, including swan-tupping, the origin of the phrase "at sixes and sevens". Find out why members can drive their sheep across London Bridge. The Worshipful Company of Marketors believes "in the power of marketing to deliver economic and social good" and Keith explains the importance of networking and the Marketors out-reach programmes to support young marketors into the profession.

Joe Glover "the Marketing Meet-up Guy" talks about his idea of setting up the Meet-Up. Designed as networking for those that don't like networking, the Meet-ups soon outgrow their Cambridge start-up base and become UK wide. Just before Lockdown, the first US Meet-Up was held. Joe explains how he has developed an organisation that was set up for face-to-face networking into a thriving virtual community.
