Gay Professional Network: social and business networking with guest speaker Paul Burston

Join us for a social and business networking drink in the Civil Service Club, a stone throw from Trafalgar Square on Tuesday 24th November 2020.

We are delighted that Paul Burston, a British journalist and author will come and speak about his latest book The Closer I Get, that was partly inspired by his experience of online harassment.

Paul worked for the London gay policing group GALOP and was an activist with ACT-UP before moving into journalism. He edited, for some years, the gay and lesbian (later LGBT) section of Time Out magazine.

His first novel Shameless, published in 2001, was praised by The New York Times.

All members have the opportunity, not at all compulsory, to say a few words, if they choose to do so, 2 minutes maximum each but most fit this within 30 seconds like “Hi, I am J-F and organise events, chat with me after to find out more or if need help with any forthcoming celebration, meeting, incentive, conference and events.”

The privatised area reserved for us is at the further end of the main bar so order your drink(s) in passing and join us, pick up your badge and start meeting likeminded people. 

Your name (when you register) is on the list at the reception, there is no need to print any confirmation, we expect you.

It is a free event to our contributing and honorary members and they take priority in the bookings: badges are prepared.  Non-members are asked to pay £10 towards the organisation of the evening either in cash or card on arrival.

Share this event with and invite your friends and colleagues, ask them to join us on (Membership is only £20 a year…)

Please share this event on Facebook and Twitter with your friends.

I very much look forward to seeing you then.

With all best wishes,

J-F for GPN
