It was a great start to the Leicester Creative Coffee Club at the Graduate Bar of De Montfort University. I’d invited my colleagues Maxine Aldred and Karl Craig-West from the Federation of Small Businesses along and we had a great chat with Sue Thomas, Shani Lee and Toby Moores as to how we could engage [...]
Not exactly soft, since around 30 people came! Creative businesses and creative academics mixing it up and sharing bright ideas. I heard some extremely lively conversation going on, although the large fluffy fresher’s week penguin which waddled through didn’t contribute anything especially intelligent as far as I could tell. I’ll be back again in two [...]
I hope this message finds you all well. Let me know if there are any other media oriented folks in the greater NYC area or at least some who come through town from time to time.

A few of us have started to post content on to the site, but we need more input from the community. If you want to write some creativity related posts or articles, then that would be great, but if possible we want everyone to join in the conversation, even with a short post or some [...]
As David (Tebbo) has already related, Toby, David and I met up just before the first CCC meeting at the Star Café for a bite of breakfast, before we headed to Foyles Café. Our chosen venue co-exists with Ray’s Jazz - that meant we got some cool bepop, and later on fusion from the likes [...]

I met Toby Moores last year at Office 2.0, and we discussed the creative collaboration work he was doing at DeMontfort University in Leicester. Over the last year, we’ve kept in touch, and I recruited him to participate in a panel at this year’s Office 2.0 conference on “Culture and Collaboration,” on how to unleash [...]
Well. That was fun.
David, Toby and I met for breakfast. Ostensibly to plan the event. In fact, Toby cleverly sent me off on a wild goose chase thereby stopping me making too many ‘organisational’ suggestions. Those that I did make were totally ignored.
And a good job too.
About eighteen delightful people turned up with all sorts [...]
