  • This location is shown only to members

Let's meet up and share our experiences. I am a very host with Airbnb and other similar websites. Whilst this is a very rewarding experience there are many struggles as well and we can help each other out with great tips and ideas.

    Met people that offered some useful tips on hosting. Thanks Tanya for organising.

      You're welcome, Yvonne.

      Zeeshan, there was no "speech" with general tips since everyone is at a different stage, of course. The format was more discussing with each other and helping each one with the issues and questions they have. Hope you can join us next time.

      June 24, 2014

  • tanya

    Thanks to everyone for coming, will send you a detailed email soon!

  • Martin

    I was very impressed with everyone I spoke with and have many new ideas to consider in my new business venture. I hope to continue to enjoy my new friends and be a part of this very interesting group.

    • tanya

      thanks for the feedback, Martin and I'm glad you found it useful. Lovely speaking to you and hopefully see you again next time!

    Would have loved to join but Monday is hectic and I really shouldn't miss my yoga session. :(

    June 23, 2014

    • tanya

      I understand, no worries. And yoga is useful, I'm a big fan myself (I do Bikram)

  • victoria

    Sorry I am going to have to back out, can't leave work

    June 23, 2014

  • Martin

    My pleasure Tanya. What time would you like me to be there and what supplies or other items can I contribute to an enjoyable and worthwhile experience for us all.

    June 23, 2014

    • tanya

      I will get some name tags so no need to bring anything, Martin, thanks. But it's nice to know someone is there to help out if need be

      June 23, 2014

  • Martin

    Would you like some help setting up? Name cards etc. will be no problem and getting every one sorted out will be easier if you have some help. Perhaps a general message of reminding people of the venue you have found, start times and an agenda might help, even if only basic.

    1 · June 22, 2014

    • tanya

      Thanks, Martin. Any help is always welcome

      June 22, 2014

  • tanya

    I booked us a few tables at the back of Electricity Showrooms pub/bar. It should be relatively quiet so we can talk to each other in peace. So excited about meeting you all :-)

    June 22, 2014

    • victoria

      Is there a tube station within walking distance?

      June 22, 2014

    • tanya

      Old street is ten minutes walk away, Victoria

      June 22, 2014

  • Kwame MA M.

    Hi Sandra, would it be ok for me and a colleague to attend, learn more about the group but sponsor by providing teas and coffees - for FREE! :)

    1 · May 29, 2014

    • Kwame MA M.

      Sorry, would love to but we only sponso teas and coffee! Maybe someone else could do that, right Cherish???

      June 2, 2014

    • tanya

      Thanks for the offer, Kwame! I have decided to have the first meet up in a pub but maybe I can take you up on your offer at a future meet up? I still hope you can join us?

      June 22, 2014

  • tanya

    It seems there will be quite a lot of us so I'll most likely have to book a venue. Most likely in a bigger pub around Old Street. I have few in mind though the World Cup fever is not helping ... Really looking forward to meeting everyone on Monday!

    June 18, 2014

  • Debbie M.

    I will be on holiday that date, hopefully I will get to the next meeting

    June 10, 2014

  • Martin

    Let's all stop going around in circles guys, Tanya is capable to ensure the best venue available, so let's not get too involved with this. One of London's splendid parks would be good enough so it's not really an issue that needs to go further. Just my thoughts of the moment, but please don't throw stale bread on the night, I like mine with vegemite and some real butter and a good aim so the ducks don't get my share.

  • ana m.

    hello Tanya , what about meeting i.e at Weatherspoon
    Liverpool St. Station ?it's easy, confortable, wide 7 best at all got delicious beers. also the one Weathsp nr Old St

    1 · May 30, 2014

    • ana m.

      but that one is just 1 wide space, heavily crowded , noisy

      it's a bit of a feature of Wetherspoons that they're all a bit crowded - less crowded on Mondays though

      June 2, 2014

  • ana m.

    hello, a central place to meet Royal Festival Hall, blue & green rooms with wide space, easy to move, free 2 bring your own stuff 2 eat/drink
    Also, if the weather is Ok,QUEEN ELIZABETH HALL ROOF GARDEN & WOODLAND GARDEN

      Hi Ana, The Blue and Green Rooms sound good - Are they the same as the Level 4 Interval Bars shown below? Not sure how the roof garden would work for a meetup - people need to be able to find the Meetup easily or they give up and there needs to be a focus (nearby bar). I imagine it will get busy until the performance starts (7:30pm) and then we'll be on our own. http://www.southbankc...­

  • Aparna

    Hi Tanya be good if you can make somewhere central...appreciate you have a difficult task!

    1 · May 30, 2014

    • tanya

      Will definitely be central, Aparna!

    Tanya, Check out the Bishops Room in Ye Olde Mitre near Holborn Circus. It's a popular, superbly historic, unspoilt, but challenging to find pub, with a Landlord who I know well but he's quirky! (Sorry Scotty, if you're reading this). No room hire, but you can't really book the whole room unless you guaranteed around 24 people which you can't do easily through Meetup unless you charge! See images here: http://yeoldemitreholborn.co.uk/functions. Reserving the two high tables near the windows works for groups from 6 to 10. More than that it's best to book and fill up the whole room, start at 5:30 and finish the formal part at 7pm so that other pub goers can then use the room too - keeps Scotty happy and you won't need to pay room hire. Mondays are good nights because they are quieter. If I were you I would charge £3-6 through Meetup/Paypal and see what happens. Let me know if I can help in any way as I am an experienced meetup organiser and networking host.

      Thanks for all your advice, John! I'd love your input, looking forward to meeting you at the Meet Up!

      June 2, 2014

  • tanya

    Thanks, everyone. I'll update the location one week before the meeting. The number of people going keeps rising so it's best I choose a location that can accommodate all of us once I know the full number :-) I'm really excited about meeting you all!!

    How about we let Tanya just update the location once she's decided?!

    Hi, love to join you. I hope the Meetup venue turns out to be near a tube - and somewhere with not too much background noise. If you have that in Shoreditch you are sure ahead of the West One.

  • Sandra F.

    Sorry can't make the first one as Mondays aren't good for me at present-but I hope you all have a good session.
