North Shropshire Jelly
Kindly hosted by Coton Oaks Internet Cafe, on the B5476 half way between Wem and Whitchurch, SY13 3LQ. 10.00 am to 4.00 pm. A chance to get out of the (home) office and work alongside other like-minded business people for a day for FREE.
What is Jelly?
Jelly is a casual co-working event where homeworkers, freelancers, small business owners and office based people who want a change of environment once in a while can get together with their laptops once a month to have a change from their usual working environment, meet some new people and work together in a social environment.
Jelly is a mixture of work, chat, sharing ideas, helping others with business issues, passing on tips and even collaborating on the birth of a new project. Jelly is NOT networking - the aim is not to meet new clients, pitch your business or try to sell - anyone blatantly doing this will NOT be popular - there are plenty of excellent Shropshire networking groups where you can do this - and you can find out about them at Jelly.
Jelly was started in the States and is now increasingly popular in the UK with over 40 active co-working groups already., So, if you ever feel isolated and want to meet some other like-minded people in a different work environment, then Jelly is for you - it's free - so jump on in and give it a try!
What is the cost to attend?
It is FREE to attend, all you need to do is bring pennies to buy yourself tea and coffee. LUNCH is available or you can bring our own lunch - but please don't bring it into the cafe!
Do I have to stay all day?
No, we don't barricade the doors:-) It's up to you when you come and when you leave - obviously the more that stay for most/all of the day, the more vibrant and interactive it will be.
Do I qualify?
As long as you have work to keep you busy and you're a business person consider yourself qualified. If you don't have a laptop, don't worry, Coton Oaks have laptops that we can use - just bring a memory stick with your work on it. The more variety of people we have attending the better! Even if you're still researching your business, you are more than welcome to come along and get some inspiration.
Who's organising it?
Barbara Rainford of Strawberry Fields based in Whitchurch, Shropshire.
