Deli’s event space con­nects com­mu­nity

Southern Telegraph - - Business Update -

A pas­sion to in­spire lo­cal cre­atives and help busi­nesses grow is the heart be­hind an event space at Kent Street Deli, which now has an on­line book­ing sys­tem.

Ear­lier this year, Kent Street Deli’s Brooke Whit­more and au­thor Amanda Viviers held a Win­ter Cre­ative Fes­ti­val, a five-day fes­ti­val with top­ics rang­ing from cop­ing with down­turns for small busi­nesses to yoga.

“There was re­ally good feed­back from the fes­ti­val — this is a fol­low-on from that,” said Ms Whit­more. The flex­i­ble space will be used for a va­ri­ety of work­shops through­out the year, in­clud­ing mar­ket­ing and blog­ging work­shops.

The event space can also be used for com­mu­nity groups, cor­po­rates, start-up busi­nesses, AGMS and pri­vate book­ings.

There is no charge for the space — all peo­ple need to do is a have a cup of cof­fee and or­der food. “The heart be­hind this space is to make it a real com­mu­nity and col­lab­o­ra­tive space and that’s what we’re see­ing hap­pen,” Ms Viviers said.

There is also a range of Women in Busi­ness work­shops.

“Find­ing ways to equip par­tic­u­larly women in busi­ness, to find ways to gather and to help them learn and grow is re­ally en­cour­ag­ing,” Ms Viviers said.

Ms Whit­more said the space was re­laxed, wel­com­ing and of­fered in­ter­net ac­cess and a screen, which could be shared and mir­rored from your own lap­top. To cel­e­brate the new event space on­line book­ing sys­tem, Kent Street Deli is giv­ing groups and busi­nesses the op­por­tu­nity to win $500 worth of Christ­mas cater­ing.
