How do you usually meet new amazing people?
I’m guessing you’ve never really asked yourself that question before. And I’m also assuming that historically its either been randomly through a friend or maybe through work.
What if there was a way to repeatedly meet interesting, pre-vetted, people?
would you be interested?
I’ve been thinking about hosting a link up once a month where myself and one co-host will:
1.) Choose one random alcoholic beverage (as we all know its a catalyst for social bonding).
2.) Invite one interesting person from our own networks individually.
3.) Ask those invites to also invite a +1 from their own networks.
So the result will be 6 people invited where you will only know a maximum of 1 person. The beauty of it is that everyone has been invited by someone else who finds them interesting. Therefore making it highly likely that you will find overlaps in interests with that new connection
The objective would will be to meet new people as well as to have open (and real) conversations about:
- who you are
- what you’re currently working on
- what you’re struggling with
- what you’re aiming to do
- how anyone can help each other
But don’t for one second think it’s a formal occasion, its a be yourself occasion.
So you’ve been invited…
Each month there will be a different small group of eclectic people.
The point of the night is to get unique ideas and perspectives outside the normal world of people we hang out with. And a chance to meet unique and interesting people making things happen in London over a strong drink.

What To Bring
A big question you’re facing right now:
“What are you struggling with? / What’s a current challenge?”
Bring an idea of how to answer that for yourself.
The challenge can be large or small, personal or professional. Common topics may be for help on career stuff, personal relationship questions, business strategy, etc.
We’ll give 7–10 minutes to group think about each person’s challenge. And of course, all conversation is off record.
If you would be interested in this give me a message on twitter
(P.S I suggest Hennessy as the drink of choice for the first night)
