Beers & Ideas

  • Project Management,
  • Self-initiated,
  • Identity Design,

Frustrated with the norm of creative networking events, I decided to start my own

A new way to collaborate

Beers & Ideas is a networking event with a difference. It gives creative folk the opportunity to voice their ideas in a public forum with the view to collaborate with others in the room. Got an idea for an app, but can’t code? See if there’s a developer who you can hook up with. Need a designer to visualise a project concept? Get a beer down you, and start talking to people.

The concept derives from an open mic format, with the option to present with a presentation on screen. Free to attend, with free beers (whilst they last).

Across three years and four different venues in two cities, I hosted four Beers & Ideas events

Some shots from the last event in April 2017 at BottleCraft in Stoke-on-Trent

Limited edition beers, coasters as well as t-shirts and posters were all planned to be produced for the events
