jkr Platform

A monthly event that enables you to hear first-hand from some of the business world's leading innovators.

The format is informal – an opportunity to chat with like-minded people over a drink and then listen to a successful entrepreneur share the lessons of their experience. Previous speakers have come from widely varying backgrounds but all embrace a truly entrepreneurial approach to business challenges.

We meet at our London studio on the third Tuesday of every month. The event is open to marketers only and Chatham House Rule applies. If you'd like to attend a Platform event, please e-mail Amy at amymaw@jkrglobal.com and she'll see if she can put you on the list.
