Extend your skills and keep learning. What’s not to like?

This workshop on Friday 25 Jan, from 10h to 11h30, had been on my radar for a while.

It’s held at Space at 61 in Nunhead, south London, a small-business hub and venue run by marketeer Shona Chambers.

Thanks to a post by men’s stylist and personal shopper Sartoria Lab on Shona Chambers Marketing Group on Facebook, I booked a place.

After all, collaboration with other business owners comes in all shapes and sizes.

Perhaps you too have used Pinterest for research, from a home renovation project to storage solutions.

Posting content on Pinterest? That’s an unknown to me, so I’m keen to find out more.

Space at 61, about a 15-minute walk from Honor Oak Park station, hosts everything from small-business workshops to pop-up dining events and children’s dance classes.

The venue is owned and run by Shona, whose career in insight and marketing includes posts at media company CBS and insurer Axa.

A couple of months back I attended the First Friday networking event at Space at 61.

Local micro-magazine publisher Angela Burgess talked about building up SE Magazines over the past 15 years.

To declare an interest: I now advertise in SE22, a magazine covering Dulwich in south London. It’s one of SE Magazines’ titles.

I also write a monthly column in the magazine about digital skills. The Feb 2019 column focuses on company anniversaries, and is a version of this blog:

(Thank you Stephen Shillito for the advert and column’s graphic design.

I know Angela, Stephen and Sarah Gilfillan of Sartoria Lab from the network Cooking with Scissors, which meets in East Dulwich.)

Space at 61’s next First Friday meeting? It’s on 1 Feb from 10h until 13; Jo Breeze will talk about crowdfunding for small businesses.
