Great Activ Evening at Corporate & Cocktails

Cocktails lined up ready for the HR attendees (and Adrian and Nikki!)
Adrian Lewis and Nikki Roberts from the Activ Team were privileged to attend this week's Corporate and Cocktails event in London, which featured an employment law quiz.

'Corporate and Cocktails' bill themselves as a fresh and lively human resources (HR) networking group and run regular HR events for HR professionals in London.

As Andy Selway, group organiser and very experienced HR professional says, "there is a reason the word “work” is in “network". It's because networking can actually be quite hard."

To change the mould of HR Networking, the Corporate and Cocktails events are informal, fun and friendly.   As Adrian said, "it is great to put faces to the names of the people you work with in an informal setting  - most HR people are people-people like us, so it's fab to avoid the stuffiness and just have a good time while sharing skills and learning."

The 14th July event featured a very successful quiz on HR law, however our own stars, Nikki and Adrian did not even come close to winning!

Every quiz has its winner, and members of the winning quiz team each won £100 experience voucher courtesy of Red Letter Days - as well as the respect of everyone present, as the quiz was pretty challenging!

It wasn't however only the quiz team who were winners that evening, as Activ Absence held a free prize draw for a bottle of champagne which was won by the lovely Natasha Mitchell, Group HR Manager at Adaptavist.

The whole evening's events were captured on film by talented photographer Naomi from and you can see the results at The Corporate & Cocktails website.

It only remains for the team to say a huge thank you to Andy Selway for organising the event, and we look forward to the next Corporate and Cocktails with enthusiasm, delight and just a little bit of a hangover!
