A Very Networked St. George’s Day

[tweetmeme source=readinggd]Our April Girl Geek Dinner in Reading was on Thursday, 23rd April and we had 24 girl and guy geeks at Il Gusto.

The dinner was kindly sponsored by our friends at Symantec who, this time, also gave a lovely prize for a draw: gorgeous champagne that, no doubt, will be enjoyed by the lucky winner Safeena Azar-Burnett.

We enjoyed meeting again with some “regulars” as well as new faces. We hope to see you soon at the next event – we will publish date and venue shortly.

Thanks for coming along and thanks to Symantec for their support.
