CMU:DIY x Urban Development
CMU:DIY teams up with Urban Development for the monthly Industry Takeover Seminar
Every month CMU:DIY teams up with Urban Development to co-host the Industry Takeover Seminar at the Red Bull Studios in London. Each edition is focused on a different topic and taps into the knowledge of a panel of industry experts.
CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke kicks off the proceedings with an overview of the featured topic, after which the panel offer insights, opinions and practical tips. There is then plenty of time for questions and networking.

As a UD Creative you can also download the Takeover Tips 2016 book packed with the insights and advice we shared at our 2016 seminars (check out chapter one here), plus you will receive each chapter of Takeover Tips 2017 as they go live.
