PLATF9RM Spooktacular Social

After the brain-tweezing success of our September ‘Let’s Get Quizzical’ Social, October sees us embracing Halloween in spooktacular style. It’s fancy dress, obviously. We want to see you in your freakiest outfits and we’ll be giving out a prize for best costume.

There’ll be mini pumpkin carving, face painting and potion-inspired drinks. We’ll probably end up in The Pond afterwards, assuming they don’t kick us out for being too gruuuuuuesome.

The Art of Masterful Coaching by Aboodi Shabi

MEMBER ORGANISED EVENT

In this masterclass, we will look at how to deepen our capacity to be present to the client, to listen beyond their goals, and to go beyond our techniques in order to serve the client in discovering an authentic articulation of who they are.

This will be a thought provoking and stimulating workshop, offering questions and new perspectives about coaching and the world in which we do our work. The day will be highly experiential with plenty of coaching and reflective exercises and will cover the relevance of coaching in our times, working with moods and emotions in coaching, working with the body in coaching, and the use and management of self in coaching.

Virgin Start Up - How To Tell (Sell) Your Story

Virgin Start Up - How To Tell (Sell) Your Story

“The greatest tool of communication given to us by Mother Nature is the power of storytelling. And telling is selling!”

So what does storytelling have to do with your business? Everything. If you can’t convey a story then your products or services are not going to appeal to your audience. Our brains value stories over anything else.

Having a great business idea alone is no longer enough. People now want to know the story behind the business, what it stands for, why they should care and why they should buy it. It’s why so many of the most successful new businesses are putting story telling front and centre of what they do.

Join us at PLATF9RM on Thursday 19 October where we will have an amazing selection of guest speakers sharing their invaluable experiences and knowledge that will help you tell your story so people listen and sell your product so people will buy!

PLATF9RM Let's Get Quizzical

After the success of our Totally Tropical Social, we’ve decided to test your general knowledge for September’s event: it’s the very first PLATF9RM quiz night!

It will be teams of 6 with any Googling of answers punished, in true English passive aggressive fashion, by loud tuts from your neighbouring teams.

At 6pm Meat Liquor will be treating us with burgers, wings and gherkins...but don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about you veggies/vegans, tasty alternatives will also be provided! Alco-lols will be decided closer to the time.

Let the battle commence!

The Importance of Beeing

The Importance of Beeing

We welcome Stewart Graham to PLATF9RM for The Importance of Beeing.

A swarm of bees fell from the sky into Stuart's little garden and he was hooked. Since that day in May 2008 he has caught dozens more swarms, bottles hundreds of jars of delicious honey and fermented very many litres of mead which can only be described as rank. Each colony inspection is a sweet blend of fear and fascination of these weird alien insects whose genes determine it is worthy to sting and die for their sisters for the greater good. And all this whilst the bees, as a consequence of their ceaseless labour, ensure fruit for our tables and and cotton for our backs. Join Stuart to see his bees and hear why beekeeping is the ultimate extreme hobby.

There will be lots of beekeeping kit to get your hands on in this interactive session, and it will be fun and informative regardless of whether you like honey on your toast. Book your ticket here. Bee there or bee square.

Open to members and non-members.

Gary Parselle from The Private Press screen printing company will be there, and he’ll be doing screen prints of PLATF9RM’S most iconic elements: we can’t wait to see what he does with our classic red 9...

There’ll be the usual rounds of nibbles, Brighton Gin and Brighton Bier, plus we’ll have SeaCider for the cider junkies. What more do you want from a Thursday?
