    Hello Xiao min - thank you for your email. I'm sorry I missed you on the skype call last week. This week I'm away so hopefully in the near future. I'm thinking of starting a beginners course at London SOAS in July. What do you think?

    best wishes Colin B

      I think taking a regular course is quite necessary for a beginner. Welcome to join in our next group meetup as well :-)

      Hi Xiao min

      I just clicked to see how the course went on saturday and I notice that it said I 'attended'? Does that mean a space came up? Oh no! I was in on saturday :( I assumed I would get an email to confirm that a space had come up? Such a shame! But I will be at the next one!! I hope it all went well.

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.
