The concept

The concept     The 2008 Event     The 2009 Event     Contacts    

For a second time, on Tuesday 7th April 2009, NetworkandRoll brought together 140 guests at the Condition Publique events venue in Roubaix.

Following the success of the first event, the 2009 edition followed the same format: a British-style professional gathering together with the creation of an original French-British work of art.

36 guests signed up to the speed networking, which took place in the first part of the evening, allowing each participant the opportunity to meet twenty or so people from different professions in less than forty minutes. Uniquely, the speed networking meant that everyone was able to make a flash presentation or ‘elevator pitch in English and/or French in a relaxed multicultural environment.

This year, as a focus to the second part of the event, Laurent Houssin, cartoonist and co-author of many song adaptations (notably Beatles) did a series of live drawings interpreting the French-British rock-pop-electro group TV Glory as they played.

A novel idea, an evening enjoyed by all.
