UK Publishers’ Walk and Talk: River Lee Country Park
19 September @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm BST
Join us for our next Walk and Talk event, 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.
Our next walk will take place on Sunday 19th September at the River Lee Country Park in Cheshunt, UK*. To take part, please RSVP at the bottom of this page. We hope you join us!
It will be led by Laurence Koster, Commissioning Editor at Cambridge University Press & Assessment, where he publishes multi-component print and digital products for Primary English Language Teaching, for learners worldwide. He works in a global team based in the UK, Spain and Mexico. Laurence has hiked in far-flung places like Iceland, as well as much closer to home in Cambridgeshire.
