    Harpo Club Report! A wonderful time was had by about FIFTY! (50!) assorted Harpies, squeezed together at the Poetry Cafe. As promised, there was a delectable mixture of artists (including two cartoonists), writers, film makers, photographers and printers, website designers, marketing experts, PR professionals and entrepreneurs.

    This was more successful than the chaotic, albeit enjoyable, Crown and Two Chairmen meeting and next month's meeting will build on this and concentrate on meeting in the upstairs area (because it's nearer the bar!.

    Personally, I was rather surprisingly reunited with two old friends - one from Ha! (Humorous Arts) times - Phil Munnoch (aka Captain Zip), and the other from the London Writers' Group era - Honza Kozel.

    Great to get such positive feedback and offers of support from Sasi and others. Great to meet her artist's model friend, Pete from Soho, too.

    It's amazing what a little casual networking can do.

    Well, the guest list is filling up at an alarming rate both here and on the Facebook group. If 25% turn up we'll have an adequately cosy gathering. Good mix of disciplines, businesses and roughly 60/40 split between male and female. Just THINK: if you're NOT coming, WHAT will you be missing? Eh???

      Is live to come but am waiting approval!

      Good to see you after all Emily!

    Wish we could find a venue which doesn't become so noisy!

    February 17, 2014

    • Simon E.

      I think that's down to the enthusiasm of the gathering, SJ - it was better than the Crown and two Chairmen. Next month we'll be upstairs - so more sociable sitting around tables, face-to-facing.

      Thanks Elaine - hopefully we can build on this and grow the Club in future months.

      And, as often mentioned, if it makes it easier for you, do bring a friend.

    Hello to you all. I hope the meet up is as exciting as Simon feels. Sadly, I have had a better offer (client wants to buy me supper in my favourite restaurant), so I shall have to catch up next time.

    Have a good evening.

    Patrick

    February 13, 2014

    • Simon E.

      That IS an irresistible offer. A CLIENT buying dinner, eh? How can I get into your world, Patrick?

    Hi Simon,

    While this might sound negative (it is not), I don't think I have ever been as excited as you are. :D I look forward to picking up some of the energy that you are generating.

    See you in a couple of weeks.

    Patrick

    February 3, 2014

    • Simon E.

      I bet you have Patrick!

      February 3, 2014

  • Simon E.

    Only two weeks to go! Are you as excited as I am?

    February 3, 2014

  • Simon E.

    YES, AT LAST. I have got through to The Poetry Cafe and we have a series of provisional dates lined up for The Harpo Club. The first on is DEFINITELY on Monday Feb 17th starting at 6.00pm. Admission is FREE to this one and, subject to discussions with the Poetry Cafe, a small admission fee will be charged for future events (hopefully less than the original £6.00 for the cancelled one).

    A special guest speaker will, hopefully, make an appearance but only for about twenty minutes, as the key thing is that Creatives meet Business People and start collaborations!

    Looking forward to seeing you all on Feb 17th!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
