Things coming into focus

Its been a week since I set up this site and registered the @forefrontleeds twitter account. In that time we've amassed 70+ followers and the response I've had has been great. I've had a few people show interest in coming and talking and had plenty of offers of help which is fantastic as I'm definitely going to need it!

There is still plenty for me to get sorted before the first meet-up but I thought I'd share my thoughts on the format etc and see if anyone has any ideas they'd like to add.

Format

The idea at the moment is to have 2 or 3 talks of around 10-15 minutes each. This should account for the first hour or so. These talks will hopefully set the tone for the rest of the evening which will basically be a chance for people to have a good chat a few drinks (alcoholic or otherwise).

When?

At the moment I'm hoping for some time during the week beginning the 18th November probably the Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday but this is dependent on venue availability.

Where?

As of writing this I have no idea! At the moment this is my number one priority. If anyone has any suggestions (or any friends with bars!) then please let me know! Hopefully this should be sorted by the end of the week.

What next?

Keep an eye on the twitter account as I'll be anouncing the confirmed date and venue on there first, at which point I'll be looking to confirm our first speakers. With a bit of luck the next time I write a blog on here I'll have a lot more things confirmed!

Cheers
