180 seconds For You
(NB: After consultation we have decided less speakers with (a little) more time will make for a more enjoyable experience for all)
This month’s Weegie Wednesday will be a little different. Instead of having one speaker, we have holding a mini open mic slot. This will not be a performance (though it could be) but an opportunity for eight people to tell us who they are, what they do, what they want to do and maybe who they’d like to meet at Weegies. And all in three minutes flat. This is entirely what Weegies is about, networking and enjoying the company of like-minded people.
The event will start at 7.30 as usual and our brave speakers will talk from a little before 8pm.
If it works, we may incorporate a short ‘notices’ slot in future events.
There are still a couple of slots available so, if you’re interested, do get in touch as soon as possible. Or just come along and enjoy eight speakers for the price of one (except it’s always completely FREE).
Contact Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like one.
