A Few Quiet Yarns has run for 12+ years bringing together a cross section of the tech industry from End User to Vendor, from CIO to Account Exec and everyone in between - in a relaxed networking environment, created by the 3 rules below that focus on "Meet the person, not the suit":
"No Selling" (You can talk concepts, but not pricing and product names)"No giving your card out" (You can be asked after a yarn)"You can't ask what someone does til the 3rd question" (Find out about the person first)
We employ the principles of gamification - break the rule, earn the consequence of being walked out with a "Red card" and equally good behaviour can earn you Life Membership
