Who are we feeding?

We seek out great people. That has nothing to do with background, education or job title, and everything to do with quickness of mind, generosity of spirit and creativity in thinking. Anyone who is taking action to contribute towards a better world is welcome to register their interest in joining a table.


Next breakfast

July 2020: RENEWAL

How can organisations, places, societies and hierarchies renew themselves fairly, sustainably and ambitiously?

Each week we are approaching the theme of "Renewal" with a different lens. We're inviting unusual combinations of guests who share an expertise and passion for this subject to join us at breakfasts where they can pool their insights, experiences and resources.

The Hot Breakfast community is an invaluable way to meet new people to support - and be supported by - and to be introduced to new ways of thinking.

Thought-provoking, expansive and pioneering - I left the breakfast with my mind brimming with questions and ideas stimulated by the open and interesting views that the others brought to the table.

It's really important for us to all get out of our silos and discuss solutions together - for me personally that's about getting a better idea of what other people are doing, so that I can factor in some of those ideas to things going on in the legal world. I now feel a renewed energy and vigour!

Louise Hooper, Human Rights Barrister
