Whether you are a freelancer, small business owner or an employee, LEAN COFFEE is a gathering of people who work within the creative industries and would benefit from a supportive environment in which to discuss, and get advice on, topics around their working lives.

Examples of topics that have previously been discussed include: 

  • should I be using Facebook, Instagram or Twitter
  • how can I deal with feedback better
  • how much self promotion is too much
  • how do others schedule in 'me' time
  • what is creative cross training and what would be good for me to do
  • what is the best platform to use for social media scheduling
  • how do I get new clients
  • how can I market myself more effectively within my industry
  • and many more topics

The session is facilitated by Alice Davies, founder + director of Wild Folk, startup business coach, life coach and creative consultant. The group is purposefully kept to a small number so that there's plenty of opportunity for peer-to-peer advice, support and sharing of experiences. 

What people are saying:

'LEAN Coffee was a really inspiring, practical hour. Alice listened to each individual's shared issue and was excellent at cutting to the core of what we needed, and advising us on how to take action towards that goal. It was great to meet other people in similar and completely different industries and to share ideas and advice in a small group. I'll be going again!' Lulah Ellender

‘LEAN Coffee is a great melting pot of ideas and meeting place for interesting people. Highly recommended to help you think through ideas and spark new ones.’ Fiona Cooper

'Inspiring and grounding, the session provided renewed energy for areas of my business that I may have a tendency to shy away from. The open sharing of ideas helped clear a couple of sticking points with the added bonus of making valued new connections.' Catherine Cridland
