Four Broadgate, the leading financial and professional services PR agency, has launched its young journalist networking initiative, ‘Hack to the Future’. The inaugural event took place on Wednesday night at the Adventure Bar in Covent Garden.
‘Hack to the Future’ provides a forum for journalists, relatively new to the financial and professional services industry, to meet with Four Broadgate and establish new contacts. It is also a chance for journalists to meet with other hacks from similar publications.
Roland Cross, director, Four Broadgate, says: “The young journalists of today are the editors of tomorrow. We have an eclectic mix of individuals at Four Broadgate who come from a variety of backgrounds and each one knows how it feels to be starting off in a new job, a new industry, or for some, moving to a whole new City. ‘Hack to the Future’ provides a useful platform for like minded individuals to get together and swap ‘survival’ stories while building up a network of useful industry contacts.”
The event was attended by journalists from a wide range of publications including Money Marketing, Professional Pensions, Your Money, Work Place Savings & Benefits, Your Mortgage and Insurance Risk.
Taha Lokhandwala, Professional Pensions, said: “Hack to the Future is a terrific idea. For some new journalists, starting off in the industry can be a daunting experience: learning the ropes while trying to build your contact base. This event was an opportunity for me to get together with other journalists, share experiences and meet the friendly and professional Four Broadgate team.”
