It began with a handful of marketing/planning bloggers getting out from behind their desks and meeting in a cafe in North Sydney. Organised by Emily Reed, we thought it was such an amazing and fun thing to do that we decided to do it again … a week later.
Two and a half years later, the Sydney Coffee Mornings have turned into a vital and energetic event. Each Friday an ever growing group of people meet at the Single Origin Cafe on Reservoir Street in Sydney’s Surry Hills. There is debate and discussion, fantastic food, brilliant coffee and more smart people than you can hit with a stick.
All this is made possible by the gracious Gav, who makes us welcome each week, and the long suffering Single Origin team who make sure we are well caffeinated and, at times, entertained.
Next week, on June 10, I will be talking about our coffee mornings as part of Creative Sydney – Come Together – The New Creative Networks (please note, you need to book tickets – eventhough they are free). I am pulling together some pictures that capture some of the ambience – and thinking back through some of the stories I have heard or been part of. But tell me – what’s yours? Have you been to coffee morning? Why? What did you love about it? Do you have a favourite picture you can share? This one of Gav is one of mine.
