December’s JellyLiverpool was held in the new Leaf Bar & Café on Bold Street, where delegates traded their normal working environment for long tables and benches, which added an altogether different vibe to the day.
Word is clearly spreading that casual co-working is the way forward for freelancers and home workers, as despite the cold and snowy weather we had a great turn out with some new faces participating in the Jelly experience and in particular we had more females join us, which was great to see.
JellyLiverpool provides free wifi, free coffee and, on a good day, free butties, but mainly offers those in need of inspiration an opportunity to work among other creative people in a welcoming environment.
Jelly is a casual grass roots way of expanding your contacts and can lead to some interesting working partnerships and collaborations. We are now attracting such a diverse bunch including freelance software developers, IT boffins, Designers & Technical Developers as well as Web Communicators and Trainers.
Just a reminder that there no specific criteria to participate in JellyLiverpool. Join us for the day or just drop in for an hour or two. It’s entirely up to you. Everyone and anyone is made welcome whether you are a freelancer who usually works at home, or you just fancy a break from your normal office, come along and try the Jelly experience. You’ll be made very welcome.
Signing up before hand isn’t compulsory but if you want to see who else is attending check out JellyLiverpool on Facebook.
