Young professionals

A TAYSIDE business network set up for young professionals has doubled its membership in its first six months.

Tayside Young Professionals (TYP), a non-profit organisation, was established in October 2011 and attracted 55 members to its launch event.

Now six months on the group is going from strength to strength with more than 100 members involved.

TYP aims to give those in the early stages of their careers the opportunity to network with their peers in a relaxed and informal environment. Get togethers are held on the last Thursday of every month, giving members the opportunity to develop their business skills and build personal and professional relationships.

To mark the six month milestone the group has organised a networking skills session on Thursday, March 29, hosted by Thorntons Solicitors at their Yeaman Shore offices in Dundee. The event is being presented by Gary Mulholland, Associate Director, Innovation and Enterprise at Dundee Business School, University of Abertay.
