UK Publishers’ Walk and Talk: Knole Park Walk
21 August @ 10:20 am - 3:00 pm BST
Join us for our next Walk and Talk event in our new series where you can meet up safely outdoors. Everyone is welcome to join us as we get some exercise – with a fix of nature – whilst connecting with others across the publishing industry.
The walks are led by Justyna Pezik, an experienced walker and hiker. Justyna has worked in publishing for 22 years, both in editorial and rights, and alongside her busy workload has gained a Mountaineer License and hiked mountains all over Europe, North and South Americas and Asia. In her spare time she leads community walks for a local charity, so she knows her stuff!
The second walk will be happening on Saturday 21st August 2021 at Knole Park in Sevenoaks, Kent*. To take part, please book your place asap. We hope you join us!
*Sorry to all our members across the UK and wider world who cannot make this event. We would love to extend this to members elsewhere – so if you are interested in setting up your own Walk and Talk, please do get in touch!
