Network members invest a lot of passion, time, energy and resources into organising and running events for their people. GWN thanks everyone involved – organisers, speakers, audiences and their respective agencies.
We encourage networks to share information about the events that have been held. This means information about the event is not lost and it can help to inspire others beyond the bounds of your own network. Sharing information about your event can introduce new ideas for other networks such as: new topics, formats for events, speakers, resources, use of technology, and can highlight future collaboration opportunities between agencies.
