TEN NEWS - April, 2008

Dear all,
Time has past quickly since we first launched TEN a year ago. We have worked hard at delivering our members interesting news and an improved approach to business networking online. Now we are going live too and one major change you will appreciate is that we are going to focus more on organising corporate events which our members have requested for frequent networking. The first offerings will be calendar of happy-hours for young professionals in Brazil, Think Tomorrow in Brussels and SaVVy Club events in the UK.

1. Young Professionals Happy-Hour: Thanks to Camille Richardson´s invaluable support, we are initiating a calendar of young professionals happy-hours at JW Marriott in Rio de Janeiro city. The first event will happen on Apr 17th and is limited to 60 people only. Register right now.

2. Think Tomorrow: Visionary and entrepreneur, An De Jonghe was quick to understand how social networks will impact organizations and individuals by changing their approach to business, recruiting, job seeking, socializing and entertaining. She organized "Think Tomorrow" to open up a global debate that will help everyone nderstand and appreciate the possibilities for business today. Be an early bid and register right now.
