NET in London


Last night we went with Shannon Hopkins to her NET meeting – Network of Entrepreneurial Talent – on the HMS President. Nathalie McDermott of OnRoad Media gave a really good talk on social enterprise as did some other young ladies from a fair trade startup.

After that we saw our mutual friend Jo Faith perform in the basement of a club. It was good to see Cindy Blick turn up also. Always an adventure to stay there with whoever else is crashing on Shannon’s floor or couch at the time (this time Carl and Jessica Stricker). Shannon immediately put me hard to work, coding html for my dinner and making images for her weekly email’s called Monday Morning Questions – which, btw, have replaced her old blog and thus no link to give you. But if you do want to support Shannon in her many missional entrepreneurial social enterprises (including The Truth Isnt Sexy), then let me know.

    Andrew – so good to see more people getting involved with social venturing. A good resource for connecting with other benevolent entrepreneurs and those looking to fund social ventures is

    gary – nice to hear from you.
    how did i create the image?
    i didnt have much time for a good job but i managed to bring it into photoshop, paint out the lettering with green, write “Shannon” in Arial font bold, (a little too skinny – a fatter font would be better), and under “layer” i hit “type” then “warp text” and then selected an arc of about 80% or so.
    then i just brushed out the star on the crown with pencil tool to create a cross.
    let me know if you get stuck.
