Description

Hey everyone!

Let's huddle around good food and great drinks as we share interesting stories and draw inspiration from each other to celebrate the close of 2018 and welcome the year ahead.

Theme: Reflection and Resolution

We will be inviting 5 speakers to share with us their key takeaways for 2018 and their expectations / goals for 2019. Presentations will be in the PechaKucha 20x20 format, with 20 images each showing for 20 seconds.

Expect an evening of sharing, reflection and resolution among great company.

As space is limited, we're keeping the size really cosy so we hope you'll be able to make it :)

Venue partner:Ode to Home

‘Ode’ or a celebration of ‘Home’ is our lyrical way of sharing our passion for homemaking. We have built both a collective concept and a physical space where you can discover makers of well-made products for daily life and a quiet spot to experience mindfulness. We strive to provide accessible products and resources so you can always retreat home to a safe space where both your body and mind can take a break after a long day.
