I could use a few good instructors with some creative ideas!
As some of you may know, I have been holding events almost every week in my other meetup Tokyo Business English http://www.meetup.com/Business-English/ in which we watch a video from Ted.com and have a discussion.
We have been getting a nice group and needed more space because so many people wanted to attend. We get a nice mix of nationalities and English levels and the level of discussion is quite high. This is for people who are serious about discussing important issues as you can see from the possible list of videos here:
Well, we have found a much bigger place and we are celebrating this Sunday.
As we have a nice big space I am looking for other instructors to help out facilitating discussions using Ted.com or doing your own specialty. My groups have over 1000 members and we can generally get over 10 people for a workshop, seminar, lesson etc.
Please contact me if you have ideas or please join us this Sunday in Shinjuku Sanchome to watch what is going on:
1: Ted.com discussion (5-7 pm 500 Yen participation fee)
2: Just come and enjoy discussion with a very diverse and engaging crowd from 7 pm. We can continue discussion and enjoy a few drinks.
From 5pm to 7pm: 500 Yen
From 7 pm: Y800 including first drink and light snacks
By the way: If you are interested in the 5 pm discussion, we will be watching this video:
Nina Godiwalla is the bestselling author of Suits: A Woman on Wall Street, which The New York Times describes as the Devil Wears Prada of investment banking. It's an insider's perspective on her experience at Morgan Stanley from an outsider's point of view- woman, second-generation Indian American, and Texan. Suits was chosen by USA Today as a top pick, and FORTUNE CNN Money call it a "must read."
Hope to see you, we will be changing many things for this group now that we have a new home.
