Saigon/CreativeMornings first event: Friday, January 14th, 8:30am, 2011

Mark your calendars. We're not going to tell you who the first speaker is, because that's a fairly large surprise but we can tell you that we remain committed to bringing world-class creative talent in to illuminate the creative process and have accomplished that in spades. The event will work like this: On December 31st, New Years Eve, we'll announce our speaker on this and other blogs and news outlets. We'll also include an online registration form. Registration opens January 1. You must register online to get on the list and the list will be limited to 30 people. First come, first serve. If you don't make that, we will keep a waiting list, but no guarantees, so early birds will get the worms, along with coffee and whatever we can dig up from mom's kitchen. The event will be roughly two weeks after registration begins and do expect the list to fill up quickly. On the day of the event, doors will open at 8:30am and our guest will begin promptly at 9. No one will be admitted after 9 so do plan on getting an early start that day. There will be a 30 minute presentation followed by 30 minutes of Q&A so we're all wrapped up by 10 and everyone can get off to work. Saigon/CreativeMornings are completely free to all attendees with generous help from our organizers and sponsors. Keep your eye on this blog and we hope to see you all on the 14th of January in a brand new year. Happy Holidays.


Swiss Miss, Creative Mornings900,000 people per month check into the SwissMiss blog for tasty design tips and commentary from Tina Roth Eisenberg, AKA SwissMiss. Along with running the blog and her studio, she manages a creative speaker forum that brings thought leaders in a number of creative disciplines in to speak and illuminate the creative process on a monthly basis. Free. Her series has become a huge hit and reservations for the 50 or so spots go in an hour of posting. A number of us thought we could use a forum like this on the Saigon creative scene. And so we had our first organizational meeting on beginning the process on November 18. I hope to have good news shortly on a 2011 schedule for these Saigon/CreativeMornings.
