Virtual coffee with strangers

Do you want to try out a slightly different approach to meeting new people, sharing some knowledge, and learning something new yourself?

Start having virtual coffees with strangers as I do!

Strange to meet you - Coffee and Cigarettes

TL;DR - I maintain a Calendly link where people can book a 30-minute video chat with me (almost) every week. Here’s the link:

But why? I love meeting new people! I love going to meetups and conferences! That was all good until we all got locked down. So, I had to find another way to do it. We’re roaming free again, but I decided to keep my virtual coffee slots. I never could’ve known the encounters would be so rewarding!

Here are some stats:

  • I met with 73 people since I started sharing my Calendly link
  • We shared 49 cups of coffee, 14 beers, and 10 glasses of wine :)
  • 11 people asked me to comment on their CVs (I started counting it because I noticed it’s becoming a pattern :)
  • I met with 5 people in person after we had the virtual coffee

So, if you think you’d enjoy it - give it a go! I promise it’s fun!

I’d also like to invite you to book a virtual coffee with me:

You don’t have to be a stranger. Let’s catch up on the last 10 years we didn’t see each other! :)
