Back in April 17, we joined local co-working space, Assembly Bradford. A space for freelancers, creatives and professionals founded by four Bradford based entrepreneurs. We were asked if we’d like to take on the first networking event for the space, our answer was of course yes.
The aim was to showcase the Assembly space, its freelancers and their offerings, whilst also offering a relaxed environment to network and learn – “Morning Assembly” was born.
Our workshop session, “Digital Mentoring and Knowledge Sharing” covered the importance and benefits of knowledge sharing and mentoring in a digital capacity.
With an early start, the ping pong table was moved aside and our presentation corner was ready to go for an early 7:45 start! (It is Morning Assembly after all!)
Tea, coffee, juice and a little breakfast soon got bodies woken and mouths chatting for a bit of pre-workshop networking. We had people who knew Assembly well, some who had heard of it and some complete newbies, everyone was welcome and everyone was active throughout the workshop which we loved! Questions were raised and answers were offered, discussions throughout the group showed how keen the Morning Assembly audience were to share their knowledge, brilliant, just what we’d hoped for!
There was plenty of time following the workshop section of the event for another coffee and a good chat with other attendees, some detail swapping and great discussion around business questions and issues carried on from the workshop before heading on to work-filled days.
This was the first of a series of networking events hosted in Assembly Bradford, keep an eye out for future events on Assembly’s Twitter page. With a community of designers, publishers, architects, writers and many other creatives, there’ll be plenty to see, hear and learn.
