All past and newcomers, do feel free to bring your friends to this event, it’s FREE and it’s up to YOU to make the most out of it especially during the infamous Q&A session
(think: why is our broadband issues not being answered etc ).
For those who came before, you would know that our new venue is a lot more favourable so we do hope to see you again. Do note also that we do NOT have a dress code, as this is an informal session and we welcome all questions including personal ones! (ie when did you make your first million.. or something to that extent)
