If you are a creative person who also wants to meet likeminded individuals, then CreativeMornings is perfect for you!
This was my first ever CreativeMornings event and I am in awe of what a good concept it is. The event gathers together lots of exciting and eager people, providing a great, relaxed atmosphere to network in. It is also free! Breakfast is provided with a selection of teas, coffees and juices as well as traditional Montreal-style bagels, courtesy of the event’s sponsor Brosso Bagels. They are beyond delicious!
The guest speaker was Edinburgh Food Studio founder Sashana Souza Zanella who admitted to us that she found being asked to speak on the topic of genius a little daunting. But she was confident, well spoken and truly inspiring. She discussed how she finds it difficult to consider individual genius, but prefers to think of a process of action that is brought around by collaboration. By definition, genius shares the same etymology as creativity. She tells us about her company and the risks they took to set up the crowdfunded restaurant and food research hub on Dalkeith Road. They run several events a week in which the general concept is to provide a fine dining experience at a reasonable price. Sashana discusses ‘Genius’ as being achieved through intuition, community, innovation and persistence. exploration and learning and knowing when to have fun and when to focus. She was very inspirational and herself created a buzz of ideas.
These events occur monthly, with different topics and local speakers, so if you were interested to get involved next time, you can find all of the information on the CreativeMornings website. If you are a creative person who also wants to meet likeminded individuals, and you’re not too opposed to an early start, then CreativeMornings is perfect for you!
