Kindly hosted by Grays Hotel, Telford from 9am to 5pm - full venue details here - a chance to get out of the (home) office and work alongside other like-minded business people for a day a month the wifi & space is provided FREE (PLEASE NOTE you can buy lunch at the venue from £4.75 and tea and coffee will be available at a special price of £1 per cup).
What is Jelly?
Jelly is a casual monthly co-working event, where homeworkers, freelancers, small business owners and office based people who want a change of environment once in a while can get together with their laptops to have a change from their usual working environment, meet some new people and work together in a social environment.
Jelly is a mixture of work, chat, sharing ideas, helping others with business issues, passing on tips and even collaborating on the birth of a new project. Jelly is NOTnetworking - the aim is not to meet new clients, pitch your business or try to sell - anyone blatantly doing this will NOT be popular - there are plenty of excellent Shropshire networking groups you can go to.
Jelly was started in the States and is now increasingly popular in the UK with over 40 active co-working groups already. So if you ever feel isolated in your home office/work office and want to meet some other like-minded people in in a different work environment, then Jelly is for you - it's free so jump on in and give it a try!
What is the cost to attend?
The space & WIFI is provided free of charge. However, we do ask all attendees to purchase food and drink directly from the venue, otherwise that's just plain cheeky....
As a hotel, Grays have a full menu of snacks and meals and drinks to keep you more than happily fueled. Tea and coffee will be available at just £1 per cup.
Do I have to stay all day?
No, we don't barricade the doors ;-) Its up to you when you come and when you leave - obviously the more that stay for most/all of the day the more vibrant and interactive it will be.
You may even want to stay on, have a drink and grab a curry as wednesday night is football and curry night at Grays! Or pop next door to use their snooker & pool room....
Do I qualify?
As long as you have a laptop (or other work) to keep you busy and you're a business person consider yourself qualified. The more variety of people we have attending the better! Even if you're still researching your business you're more than welcome to come along and get some inspiration or get a change from your current work or office enviroment.
