17 May 2017


Grant Thornton from 6.00pm

£5 for members and £7.50 for non-members

Back by popular demand the OYPS poker night!

Grant Thornton have kindly offered to host the evening. Don’t worry if you have never played before we will teach you how to play and mix up the tables so that you learn the game really quickly. Members of the committee will also be on hand to give tips and advise during the evening.

For all you poker experts, there will be a winners table where you can battle it out for glory with the other top notch players. Beware we have had novices win in previous years, and they wiped the floor with the so called experts!

The event is £5 to members and £7.50 to non-members.

The cost will include nibbles, so please sign up in advance. We will start playing poker at 6.30pm.

Become a member. Join the Oxford Young Professional Society (OYPS) today.

Membership is just £25 for one year.

Membership will mean you get FREE entry to at least two events per year and discounted tickets to most other events we run. Our year runs from October to October.

The Oxford Young Professionals Society (“OYPS”) is a local professional organisation that provides a ‘forum’ for graduates and junior members of staff (ie non Senior Managers/ Directors/Partners) to learn how to network. We hold both professional development and fun events during the year.

Regular attendees include people from (amongst others): Freeths LLP, Grant Thornton, Pennington Manches, Carter Jonas, Royds Withy King, Knights, Shaw Gibbs Ridge, Savills and Blake Morgan.

Networking is an important skill set to develop as part of your career progression as eventually it will not only build up your own professional contacts, but it may also lead to referrals (both in and out) as well as giving you the ability to pick up the phone direct to someone with a legal, property or other query.

We hope you will become a member and join us at an event soon.
