The best long-term business models are those that seek to provide valuable services rather than seek the shortest route to profit.
We prioritise people over profit. We will not subject participants to spam or data collection, nor ask them for financial contributions. If you want to give something back, just buy a drink at the bar when you’re good and ready. Participants are free to enjoy the social space we provide without interference from us or advertisers. We don’t do audience participation, talk over microphones, ask you to move around, nor participate in novelties or games. No wristbands, ads, handing out flyers, sign-up lists, raffles, no messing around. We respect your personal space.
We don’t accept commissions for anything removing the need to advertise anyone’s products in our events or online. Occasionally we may talk about a free and language related service just because we want to.
