Where creativity unites us
The Common Table’s mission is to build a creative community that cultivates positive and encouraging relationships, fosters a venue for honesty and vulnerability, and creates opportunities for service, mentor ship and support. We desire to see our local communities gather monthly for an official meeting, as well as other activities including round tables, and one-on-ones. We believe there is greater fruit when relationships are grown through honest and encouraging relationships. We aim to leave strife and comparison at the sidelines and instead cheer on one another to excel in the creative talents we all have.
This event is scheduled for November 16th and will be held at Historic Seven Sycamores. Our hope is that The Common Table will be something that we can host multiple times throughout the year. Our first Common Table was held in the spring and turned out to be a huge success (at least for our first time)! The event included an appetizer/cocktail hour, a plated and served dinner, and featured speaker Mike Larson, a world renowned photographer who spoke to guests about how to develop your character within business.
Our second Common Table will be much the same. There will be a four course meal and our featured speaker is entrepreneur Ellen Bennett from Los Angeles, founder of Hedley & Bennett Apron Company. Ellen's list of apron customers is long, but includes Ludo Lefebvre, Thomas Keller, Nancy Silverton, David Chang, Mario Batali, and even non-food related customers such as Google, Jimmy Kimmel & Mindy Kaling! She also recently finished up an interview with Entrepreneur Magazine and has been featured in the LA Times, Oh what JOY!
