#4good brekky – a place for Adelaide changemakers to meet

Update: Thanks everyone who came along to the second #4good brekky! The next one will be held from 8am on Friday, 30 September at Big Table in the Adelaide Central Markets on Gouger Street. Hope to see you there!

If you’ve ever chatted to me, or read my blog, you probably know that I love to connect people. I do it in my work as TACSI‘s Connector/Communicator… I do it in my volunteer work, I do it for fun (like when I was online matchmaking through 100 dates!).

So it’s no surprise that my latest idea is a new way for people who do good stuff to meet each other. #4good brekky will combine a bunch of my favourite things – breakfast, great coffee, and conversation with people who have great ideas & are working to put them into action!

There are a lot of great meetups already happening in Adelaide, (hello NetSquared! hello Socadl!) but I’m hoping this meetup won’t just be technology/social media people (much though I love them and certainly identify as one of them!). When chatting over this idea, Katy from Connecting Up commented to me that she really needs to spend time with her “hands in the dirt” doing stuff to make social change happen and she wants to connect to other people like that, and I totally agree. So please, help me spread this invitation online and offline to people who are doing good stuff in Adelaide. Renew Adelaide, I’m looking at you! Radelaide, I’m looking at you! Format, I’m looking at you!

Inspired by the wonderful community building of Kate Kendallย who started #socialmelbย brekky in Melbourne, #4good brekky will happen before work on a Friday morning. For many of us, meetups during work hours just aren’t doable – and swapping ideas when you’re freshly caffeinated in the morning can be a really inspiring start to the day!

If this sounds appealing, pleas come along for a coffee or brekky before work! The first #4good brekky will be on Friday, 5 August from 8am at Big Table at the Central Markets.

    Bloody excellent idea. I just can’t do brekky that early on A friday – I work a 12 hour day on Thursdays … am exhausted on Friday mornings… but keep me posted.
    Cheers

    not so doable for those of us whose work day starts at 8 and or outside the city but a great idea nonetheless.

    Hi Emily! Thanks for the feedback! I am thinking of doing an after work meetup sometime too – would that suit you better?
