Revel In Our Members’ Wealth Of Knowledge
We are excited to continue our semi-monthly Lunch and Learn, a time for our wonderful coworking members to share their wisdom while we gather for a community meal. At each session, one of our members leads a discussion about a particular area of his or her expertise, and we all then have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in meaningful conversation. Topics vary widely, in alignment with the diverse skill set of our members, and may include: technology, data analysis, literature, environmental sustainability, education, emotional healing, conscious marketing and more.
Every second and fourth Tuesday of the month from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
This event is free to attend.
Please bring your own lunch. A substantial side dish will be offered.
