Description

Welcome to A Few Quiet Yarns 2020!

We're looking forward to hosting you and enabling you to come and connect with good folk of a diverse but tech focussed background, to share experiences and stories before talking shop - the aim, the "Meet the person first, then the suit". Here is the Oct 24th event video

Overview:

This is the No-selling Tech-Networking event where you are invited to "meet the person" by discussing your commonalities; sports, hobbies, favorite restaurant, as long as you don't ask "What do you do?" until it reappears naturally inconversation - as we all work in te tech industry, we know thats the fall back and that we we will "meet the suit/title/role" which naturally causes a judgement - hence "meet the person before their suit" is how we roll, and how we encourage you to roll if you attnd AFQY.

Sponsors:


Event Format:

This event presents the opportunity for all good people to form a social or personal relationship where you can understand the 'cut of a person's jib'.
