For example tomorrow, Tuesday 7 August 7:30pm - Outside the Box, An inter-disciplinary networking evening. Beer / Soft Drinks are only 10 RMB and Wine is only 15RMB and the canapes have been made by the Red Tree Restaurant.

Our friend Paul from IWannaBuy is offering each and every FCGroup member (yes that includes you and yes membership is free) a 100RMB discount on any purchase of an air purifier, humidifier or coffee machines - any model. The discount code is at the bottom of this email.

Then nest week,Tuesday 14 August 7:30pm, we have our signature, long-running, continually popular - HR, Headhunter, Career and Professional Development Social Networking Evening. There is a very good reason why this event has been running since March 2007 and it is highly recommended.

Tuesday 7 August Outside the Box.

This inter-disciplinary networking evening is for people from all professions and industries that wish to meet, mix and mingle with people from other industries and professions.

In these days of over specialization a stimulating evening with people outside one's own industry is often like a breath of fresh air and can fuel original thought, problem solve and be fun.

A warm night, a private secluded garden, drinks at unbeatable prices and some great people make this an ideal chance to enjoy a fun and relaxing evening and at the same time to make some new connections and friends.
