Jelly craze set to hit Cumbria's business world
Last updated at 15:06, Tuesday, 27 March 2012
A business craze that started in New York six years ago will hit Cumbria next month.
Jelly, a casual working event similar to networking, was started by two US home workers who were missing the company of colleagues.
The idea is not to find new clients or win business but to build a support group of like-minded people to recreate the collegiate feeling of working for a company.
Cumbria will get its first taste of Jelly when two mums launch a group in Cockermouth on Monday, April 2 at 10am.
Hatti Burt, of Creative Soul Marketing and Charlotte Davies, a marketing consultant, are behind the event, at the Coffee Kitchen on Challoner Street.
Charlotte said: “Jelly is a friendly way for people to get out of the house for a change of scene, a chat and exchange of ideas.”
The event is free. Book at www.cumbria.eventbrite.com.
