Covo member Betsy Burroughs has been doing an informal, drop-in conversation salon at her SOMA loft every month since 2004. The Salon went on hiatus for the first time last summer but now is excited to be starting monthly FocusCatalyst Brainstorming Salons up again this Wednesday night, May 3rd 5-8pm, at Covo!
The Salons are just interesting people, interesting conversations. They aren't meetings nor is there a topic. Upwards of 50 people typically attended each month (unsure that will be the same going forward). Attendees skew a little more to men than women and included 20-somethings on up and a lot of artists, authors, filmmakers and tech people.
The FocusCatalyst Brainstorming Salons at Covo are going to be a bit different than the previous ones. One of the features of the Salon was the Salon Book Table piled with books written by Salon attendees. That's more of a challenge to do at Covo so that won't be happening this Wednesday but it may in the future.
If you want to get more of an idea about the Salons and the kind of people who've come to them over the years, you can read a few past invitations to them on www.betsyburroughs.com.
Hope you can join!
