United Kingdom
3:00pm Mar 9, 2013


Hi guys,

The location for this Powwow will be as follows:

Nordic Bar
25 Newman Street
London
W1T 1PN
www.nordicbar.com

The bar is behind Oxford Street. You can see the map on their website for more details. The Nordic Bar is not normally open at 3pm but they will open just for us. We'll have a private room. No charge for entry. I did try to book the King and Queen (where the events are normally held), but sadly it was not available. Anyway, the Nordic Bar will be a new experience for us!

The official starting time is 3pm as requested, but I'll arrive a bit early, and we'll probably continue until about 6-7. I'm sure some people will want to stay for more drinks after that. I wouldn't arrive too much after 6pm though in-case we've all gone already.

This is mainly a way to network and meet other translators. Please bring business cards if you have them, or CV's. Feel free to invite anyone who might be interested. I'll ask a couple of experienced member to circulate and try to make sure the shy attendees get a chance to chat with everyone. If anyone wants to volunteer to help out, please leave a comment below and I'll get in touch. Mainly it would be good to have a backup in case I get sick on the day and can't attend.

Please do post any questions or concerns, this is the first meetup I'm arranging. If there are any problems on the day you can call me on 07770 753 717. The Nordic Bar can be reached on 020 7631 3174, they will help you if you get lost!

Looking forward to seeing you all!
Best,
David

Hey David!

Thanks for thinking about this. I think we've met before on one of these meetings. The usual venue was the King & Queen at 1 Foley Street, where there was always an arrangement that the function room is free for us, if everyone donates a pound to a charity that the owner supports. Maybe it's worth taking this into account? Goodge Street station is nearby, as are buses.

Oh, and the usual time was 3 PM. Obviously, as the organizer you're free to do it as you wish.

Cheers,
Michał

Agenda? Feb 14, 2013

Hi guys,

is there's any special agenda for the get-together, or is it just a sort of a sociable meeting?

Hi guys, I did try and book the King and Queen but they were booked up, so I found an alternative. Maybe we could have a discussion after the event about where to hold the next one. I've moved the time to 3pm as you suggested. I also got a couple of emails about that. 3pm seems to be the popular time. Thanks for your comments

Agenda Feb 20, 2013

Hi, I don't think there's any need for a particular agenda; it's just a good way for us to mingle with other linguists. Hopefully there will be a networking aspect and also a social aspect! Of course, if anyone has anything they wish to propose in terms of a talk or anything we'd be delighted to include it. Thanks!
