Feb 17th update —
Green Drinks is on Tuesday, March 14th from 5:00- 7:00PM at the The Drake Eatery 517 Pandora.
We get a thoughtful mix of new and familiar faces each month.
We’ve been running since 2006.. providing fresh opportunities for like-minded, like-hearted folks to meet in an open, unstructured, lightly facilitated, audibly comfortable, flexible environment. Helpful to remember that keeping conversations focused, rather than long and rambling, brings more value and opportunity.
Conversations that uncover new resources and solutions
I ask many people at Green Drinks about a project they are excited about, an experience they are working on, or something they’ve learned from.
In this clip…Gregir, an engineer is talking about his success in finding work and friends, after his first visit to Green Drinks.
Green Drinks is about asking good questions, and listening for some of the gold from other’s experiences. Hearing new ideas we may not have access to anywhere else.
Green Drinks successes are marked by fresh conversations, and ‘light bulb’ moments..of bringing people and ideas together and effecting change. Green Drinks’ mission to help build and support sustainable community is furthered by helping connect people in a rich talent pool.
Making the most out of Green Drinks What do you want people to ask you about at this month’s Green Drinks? We call this your “Green Drinks’ theme.”
