We’ve started the year with a bang – or shall we say some very fine pastries!
This morning we hosted our first 2018 Community Breakfast to celebrate the new year and give our Cocoon members the chance to network in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
Our Head of Community Yating and our Community & Event Coordinator Jack welcomed everyone and announced the upcoming events and community highlights over the next couple of months, which include a large Chinese New Year celebration of the ‘Year of the Dog’ on February 16th involving Chinese delicacies, decorations and festive activities. Other planned activities include a book sharing event, where the book lovers in our community can discuss and exchange their latest must-reads, as well as our 2nd ping pong tournament after the first round was extremely well received and many of our avid ping pong players in the building are eagerly awaiting round 2 to get their own back ;)

Major large-scale events to look forward to include our annual China-UK Hi! Technology Festival during London Tech Week. This year will see an even bigger line-up of expert speakers and industry professionals along with all that the Festival is known for – great panel discussions, lively debates and plenty of networking opportunities with both UK and Chinese industry professionals, entrepreneurs, investors, government officials and academics.
We will also continue to host Meet AI in collaboration with award-winning robotic start-up Emotech. Meet AI is a monthly AI knowledge-sharing platform and networking event for AI enthusiasts in London. You can read more here.
