Are you trying to do something different within your current system, whatever system that may be? It could be your organisation, the education system, the healthcare system, or you’re starting a new social enterprise. Are you trying to work in a new way or start something that will disrupt how things are traditionally done?
Being in this space can be exciting, inspiring and challenging. But it can also be frustrating, tiring and, at times, a bit lonely, because others might see you as a bit weird. So how energising is it when we discover others who are in this space too?
If you’re looking for a place where people understand that you’re trying to do something different and can give you moral support, and possibly practical help, the Fire Starter Breakfast Club might be it.
It started a few months ago and is a monthly space for all fire-starters, quiet disruptors and system-shakers, risk-takers, rebels with a cause and civil disobedience makers. You may see yourself as all or none of these things but that doesn’t matter. It’s not about the labels, it’s about the work.
The intention behind the Breakfast Club is that it is open to all as a kind of drop-in, peer-support group where ideas and learning span across boundary lines. Whatever you’re into, if you need some sustenance, come and meet other like-minded individuals from different areas and sectors. It’s very informal, with our general discussion being around what mischief you’re making at the moment and what help you might need.
We meet monthly between 8.30 and 10 am, usually in Starbucks on Leith St. However, the next one is at the Melting Pot. If you fancy adding the dates to your diary, they are…
- 12 October 2016 8.30 – 10.00 – Melting Pot, (please BYO coffee for this one!)
- 9 Nov 2016, 8.30 – 10.00 – Starbucks, Leith Street (near the Omni Centre)
- 14 Dec 2016, 8.30 – 10.00 – Starbucks, Leith Street (near the Omni Centre)
- 11 Jan 2016, 8.30 – 10.00 – Starbucks, Leith Street (near the Omni Centre)
It’s a great way to start the day!
