'Rent and Expert' needs a location - ideas?
So the hardest part for me on these little events we like to throw is securing the right venue. Part of it lies with the uncertainty of how many people will be there, the other is making sure the location has all the bells and whistles we need (primarily room to move around - for the unknown number of attendess - and WiFi).
Our very first 'Rent an Expert' event is coming up on Thursday June 15th and I am needing help to secure a few things within the next week:
(1) Good restaurant/bar/cafe/office location with plenty of seating space and WiFi. As the event will be from 5:30pm - 9pm, we need to make sure we don't impede on the busiensses prime time hours of operation and that our group will have a quiet space to play.
(2) A handful of sponsors for $100 each to cover some of the costs (snacks, drinks, other supplies).
If you have any ideas on potential sponsors or venues, please leave a comment here or shoot an email to kristie [at] brainjams [dot] org. I would surely appreciate it.
And as an FYI, a little bonus just announced for those signed up as experts...the one who collects the most money from their 'clients' over the course of the evening will win a copy of MindManager Pro 6.0 for the PC (a $349 value). This is a fantastic program that enables you to quickly organize your ideas and information.
For more information, please visit us at the BrainJams wiki and the blog.
See you on the 15th!
