Work Jam + Networking
Working alone is no fun… Solution? Work Jam! Get things done and meet like-minded people while working together. Join a group of no more than 6 people in the above-mentioned location, get out your laptop/notebook, declare your goals to the group and start working! Our 5-minute breaks between 25-minute work sessions will also allow you to know the other participants. Want to make it even more interesting? Every time a Work Jam happens in one of our 90+ groups around the world, our Telegram work jam channel will also magically be active, so you can also feed your goals for each session there: The group is limited to max. 6 participants, so if you can't make it, please cancel to allow someone else to join. If you arrive first, please write a comment below about where you're sitting and how to identify you (e.g. shirt color). If you don't see a comment, you are the first person, so please post one and join our Telegram channel in the meantime so you don't feel alone Why Work Jams? Working together is proved to boost productivity. It will create the accountability as you will declare your goals and results for each session. Also, meeting new people while working together will connect you to potential team members, clients and friends. It's a powerful mix of focused work with networking short breaks. What will happen? We'll start with introductions and networking (first 10 min). Then we'll do 4 Pomodoro sessions of 25 minutes each, with 5 minute breaks between each pomodoro work session. How we'll work We'll follow "Pomodoro Technique", which is a popular time management and productivity method of 25 minutes of work and 5 minutes break. If your group is big enough, you can just create a pomodoro timer at and start it when everyone is ready. Before you do, it is optional for everyone to declare their goal for the session. If you rather stick with our "global timer", join us at and receive the link to the timer there.
