This Funzing Experience:

Funzing Talks @ Night: with former MI5 whistleblower and author Annie Machon.

Love him or loathe him, Donald Trump's election as US President has certainly put a ginger tom cat amongst the elite American pigeons.

The push-back from the American establishment began as soon as he became the Republican nominee and has increased pace over the last year.

The designated villain-in-chief: Russia.

Wild claims of "Russia hacking the elections" have become established, if evidence-lite, fact. Are they true? If not, why and how are they being made, and what is the motivation behind the allegations?

Using her experience as a former British intelligence officer as well as her current work with notable CIA, NSA and FBI whistleblowers, Machon will attempt to unravel this modern Gordion knot.

Venue: Cafe 1001, Brick Lane

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

Earlybird Tickets: £12 (SOLD OUT)

Standard Tickets: £15

Funzing Talks @ Night is a new concept which aims to take the well known 'Tedx' style talks, and make them more accessible. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work beers.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a Funzing Talks @ Night event makes the perfect after work mid-week activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
