Dirty Rotten Socials are back and, in collaboration with Do Lectures, invite you to inject purpose into your life and your business. For those not yet in the know, the series looks at different ways to drive change. Join David Hieatt and Mark Shayler to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in.
'Do Does Soho With Purpose' will look at how you apply purpose to what you do. It looks at why purposeful disruption is the only game in town. We are going to talk about how to make sure you’re climbing the right mountain and how to do a shed-load (technical term) of good on the way.
You know that crazy idea that you keep writing-off? The one at the back of your mind that keeps waving its hand and shouting “me, me, now”? The one that you know will change you? The one that will change more than you? The one you were born to do? That one?
When are you going to do it? When are you going to back yourself?
Come along to be inspired and to give yourself or your organisation a kick in the pants. Better may not be easy, but when did easy build great?
This is the fourth Dirty Rotten Social curated by The House of St Barnabas in parternship with movers and shakers in the cultural and social world. The event will take place in the atmospheric Chapel of St Barnabas.
Tickets include a copy of a Do book and a glass of wine, to be enjoyed in the interval with a side of great conversation.
The Do Lectures exists to close the gap between what you are and what you could be. They are the encouragement network.

More recently David has created Hiut Denim, a jeans company that is helping to bring back the jeans industry to Cardigan, a town that used to have Britain’s largest jeans factory. Its purpose is to give 400 people their jobs back. David has a cult internet following, and has spoken at Apple, Google, and many other top companies and events.
