The event focuses on how to develop a successful career and find peer-to-peer support within the licensing community. The event will take place in The Dana Centre Café, adjacent to the Science Museum, London.

At the heart of the event will be a talk by Victoria Saint from Turner, Cartoon Network Enterprises, who will be drawing on her career in brand and entertainment properties to give attendees insight and advice on how to succeed in licensing. Following Anya Hollis’ talk there will be an opportunity for attendees to have a drink and network with others within the licensing community.

Flip remains one of the key elements of LIMA’s mission to educate professionals about the licensing industry and to support people in their licensing careers. Ryan Beaird, UK programme leader for flip, commented: “This is the second London flip networking event and this year we’ve decided to give people something new by giving them exclusive access to two of the industry’s successful players, letting them get a real insider’s knowledge into what it takes to progress in this internationally focused industry.”

The price to attend is £10 inclusive of VAT, which includes refreshments at The Science Museum’s Dana Centre (165 Queen’s Gate, South Kensington, London, SW7 5HD). The ticket also grants access to the Science Museum’s free ‘Lates’ Events which begins immediately after the event at 7.30pm.
