OME Hospital Club

Wow - its our 10th event tonight (if you want to find out more go here) - it started off as an idea Kork had one day 4 years ago and its now become a proper thing. As ever equally worried about too many people turning up for capacity and simultaneously fearful - it will be just us and the speakers and a lot of food and drink.

Why does it work?
1. It is completely not a sales event (obvs we have picked up clients - but that's because we are great)
2. It has a small bit of content - but it really is about networking
3. People can drift in and stop for a beer - or end up in Covent Garden at 2am (I have done both)
4. Its kind of semi regular - 3 events one year, 2 the next and I quite like it that way.

Anyway - look forward to meeting some good folk tonight

A Seismic Event in History

OME are moving out of the Business Design Centre in Islington, We have been here (in ever expanding units) since we launched 9 years ago and I feel rather emotional about it all. we are heading to a beautiful location with crazy stuff like access to natural light, roof terrace and bar downstairs but it wont be the same as our lovely gloomy Stalag.

So does location affect culture?
1. I hope it marks a step up as we continue to grow and prosper
2. Maybe it will make us more professional as we will be in such a cool space.
3. But I hope it does not take away the fun and informal atmosphere that I think our staff and clients like.
4. Anyway - I think its a good excuse to have a summer party, so hopefully the landlord wont ask us to leave the next morning!
