Small Businesses IRL
26th November 2019
Table Talks is a talk and dine supperclub series featuring 4 ladies discussing their work and presenting one topic of discussion for each course. The events are open to all genders and won't necessarily discuss female issues but mostly general topics of current interest. We just want to put forward some amazing ladies to lead these talks!

This event's theme is all about Small Businesses IN REAL LIFE. How did we do it? How did we start? Where are they now? Come and meet some amazing lady entrepreneurs who decided to follow their passion and start their own brand. Find out more about the highs and lows of being your own boss, meet some exciting people and unwind on a tipple (or two!).
We are partnering with a funky new space (they're only 2 months old!): Make Town in Hackney (a few mins walk from Hackney Central Overground). This lovely space is a textiles & craft studio and most importantly "a central hive of buzzing creativity, focused on inspiring and guiding you through your personal journey of making."
