August 7th Update  —

Green Drinks is  on Tuesday, August 8th 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.

Here Mal talks about how recognizing colleagues can bring new energy to businesses small and large.  To view more from our Green Drinks Playlist

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.”
