Last night I experienced yet another first in my life. I attended my first #momondaysLondon event at the Western Fair Carousel Room. I had no idea what to expect and went in with an open mind. A friend of mine had posted on Facebook last month that she had a fantastic time at the February Event. By chance another friend had also mentioned a similar event in a different city. We chatted about it and decided to give the London event a whirl.
The doors opened at 5 and by 615 the room was beginning to fill. It is best to buy tickets ahead of time and even better-buy a table of 8 so that you can all sit together. Seating is assigned ahead of time–yet another reason to buy a table. There were refreshments and snacks for purchase during the entire evening as well. Each attendee received this programme that outlined each of the 6 speakers, the charity of the night and a warm welcome from Paula Morand, Emcee and Victoria Craig, Producer.
To say the energy in the room was electric would be an understatement. There was an eclectic mix of people with a variety of backgrounds. The momondays webpage states that you meet the nicest people and I would have to agree. I thoroughly enjoyed talking with those around me and everyone was happy to share their reasons for attending and what they do. The networking potential was incredible.
Each speaker was allotted a specific amount of time to share their story. This is part of what made the night so powerful. Everyone has a story to tell and these 6 brave speakers made a committment to share theirs. If you would like to speak at a local momondays event you can find more information HERE. Paula Morand was the wonderful emcee of the evening and kept things rolling. The evening always follows a similar itinerary. Half of the speakers share their story, an intermission (including a fun game for prizes) and the remaining speakers have their time to share their story.
Last night each story was unique. Each speaker had a slightly different style and message to deliver. Some made us laugh, some made us gasp and some made us think. A wonderful mix of life stories that included some sort of takeaway message. I can’t wait to attend another #momondaysLondon!
