Sponsorship partners and Cake
Young Professionals in Construction is 1 year old and to celebrate, we hosted our 1st Birthday Party.
In its first year YPiC has grown to 650+ members, we threw a party to get as many of us as possible together, network and enjoy some tasty birthday cake. As is now expected, the evening began with an informal networking game - a YPiC version of pass the parcel. The abridged format of the birthday classic went down well with all in attendance; the parcel circulated the small groups for 6 seconds, the music stopped giving the holder 10 seconds to speak on a random topic. We were delighted at the laughs had and the positive feedback we received.
As this was a birthday party, we took the decision to tweak the evening format slightly. In lieu of a key speaker, the night was given over to a live DJ to provide background beats and some exciting sponsor unveiling. Between the drinks, networking game, cake and a short committee speech, the night passed at pace.
A key component of the evening was our formal announcement of two YPiC headline sponsors; Savills and Thomson Gray. Each company recognises the importance of what YPiC does for below Director level engagement and the YPiC committee are delighted to have them onboard. The support offered by Savills and Thomson Gray for the next year allows YPiC to continue to grow and bring another four events to market, towards the end of 2016 and into 2017. Exciting times indeed.
