BAG Deputy Chair
"It was an absolute delight to attend this event and to host the networking skills discussion table. The BAG NextGen group is a thriving group of diverse young professionals who are snapping at our heels as future leaders and role models of our industry. This was a wonderful opportunity to spend time with these fabulous individuals, to share our knowledge and experience from across the years. These occasions are also a chance for those of us in the latter years of our careers to learn from the NextGen, and to be inspired by their new ways of thinking and working."
