Last job ended? On hiatus? Mat/pat leave? Looking for your next experience? Feeling a bit feral?
You normally work in design, product, strategy, research, content, sales/biz dev, development, or brand/marketing in the digital space (did I forget anyone?). You might be a freelancer, contractor, or full-time worker, or some combination of these at different times.
Stay connected to the industry and meet new people. Perhaps you have an idea you want to run by people, or there’s a new area you want to explore. Maybe you have a side project with which you want some help.
Initially, I see this as more of a casual social group for people to connect, rather than a group that holds big presentations with speakers and panels (there are already other groups doing that). But down the road, who knows?
As this group ramps up, we’ll be looking for:
- Ideas for types of meetings/activities – e.g. new member meeting, drinks, mock workshops, walking meetup in a park, “speed-dating”, etc. - Specific places to meet (preferably central, free or cheap, for up to about 20 people) - People interested in hosting meetups (days, evenings, weekends)
Post to the discussion board or message me directly if you have any ideas for the above. I’ll take all of the ideas I can get to set up the first few meetups.
