Open Sauce is an inclusive, fun space to inspire and excite as wide an audience as possible.
The aim is to bring together and engage an audience of ambitious, bold and curious individuals, keen to learn, connect and share. It's networking, but not as you know it.
We want small businesses, large businesses, public sector organisations, corporations, creative practitioners, developers, designers, marketeers, artists, students, pretty much anyone and everyone, to come along.
Over the course of a well-curated evening, you'll have the chance to hear from six interesting speakers as they share their passion via 20 slides. They'll each have just 6m 40s to convey a thought, a message or an expertise in a fun and entertaining way. And hopefully you'll meet someone fun and interesting too.
Does that make it sound a bit like speed-dating(?) Honestly it's not. Open Sauce is to all intents and purposes, a business event. It's just a little bit different.
For January's event we've lined up a very special guest host – the one and only Dave Birss – speaker, broadcaster, author, ex-creative director and all-round good egg. You're in very capable hands. So best get a ticket now...
Chris Thorpe – Founder, I Can Make
Craig Eldridge – Front End Developer, Intergage
Deanna Rodger – Spoken-word artist
Leanne Spencer – Founder, Bodyshot Performance Limited
Pip Jamieson – Founder, The–Dots
