Event description

Description

Bad events suck so we created 'Brolly'. Described as 'The best £10 I ever spent', Brolly is your resistance strategy against the ever-growing amount of events that should have been a blog post.

The first-ever 'Battle' Brolly will be happening on 19/02 at Fora, Folgate and tickets are strictly limited so get yours now.

We'll be answering the question 'War...huh? Is it good for business?' in a special setting with Ex-Royal Marine/CEO of Decision Advantage, Gareth Tennant, Si-Fu Kung Fu Master, and a very special guest that will be announced nearer the day.

An evening of activities and experiences will be curated by Paul Armstrong, HERE/FORTH.

Brolly is made possible by Fora and Buzzbar - the world-first walk-in marketing and production service.


MORE ABOUT BROLLY:
There are three types of Brolly:

Basic Brolly - one superb speaker, giving the dark secrets of their industry/a topic. (20-30 mins)

Battle Brolly – two opposing views battle for your approval (and final audience vote). (30-40 mins)

B!tch Brolly– a challenging, one-person focused rant with Q&A to change people's mind on a topic. (20 mins).

Brolly was created by HERE/FORTH, the emerging technology advisory for Fora. Founded on the symbol of the humble umbrella. Our founding principles; don't be boring, have bold, honest and safe dialogue, say something of value, push things forward and have fun. After all the brolly is a bastion of safety against the elements for us Brits as much as a symbol of defiance in other parts of the world. Rain or shine, it’s a versatile beast.

Previous Brolly Alumni include Arcadia, Jane Evans, JamJar Investments, Rory Sutherland and more are planned with the likes of Sifted (FT's new startup arm), Wired, Google, Seedcamp, Seen Connects and more.

The Brolly house rules:

Ask tough questions, but no ads - we pick people who don't dodge them so fire away but please no adverts.

Drinks - Alcoholic or not, they flow at Brolly. From 450-year old leaf cold brew from Grass People Tree to the latest gins and beers from amazing brands, you're unlikely to have heard of a lot of what you experience at Brolly. Please share your experience wildly.

Surprises - We throw them in all the time but they're not being thrown into the back of a van variety. Go with it and you're welcome. ;)

Show up - Hey, it's your money but we tell the speakers who doesn't show up so make sure you're good and attend because taking a space stops someone else attending.
