"Dinner for Five" or four, or eight...

Last night, I attended a dinner event at Abacus hosted by U.K. based DinnerPoint. I had read about it in the Financial Times. The concept is rather simple, put 4-8 professional strangers together at an upscale restaurant and discuss ... whatever. There were only 3 of us, but we had great conversation and a fun time networking and comparing circles of friends. Will Cochran & his college mate Fenner Austin (are those British names or what?) started the concept last year and now have 100s of dinner events all over the world. All you do is go to their website, create a profile, choose your top 3 cities in the world and wa-la! Each dinner event cost $20 + meals, wine, etc. So if you're stranded in Sydney, London, Tokyo, Dallas or Milan ... no worries! You've got a party of 5 waiting anxiously to meet you!


Soon... people all over the world will be eating dinner just like Jon Favreau

There's another version of dinnerpoint in London now called http://www.thesocialservice.com but as well as dinners they also arrange for groups of 6 - 15 people (mainly professionals from UK & abroad) to meet each other and enjoy other social evenings eg cocktails evenings/drinks in quality bars/pubs, night out at a comedy club, gallery/theatre visits etc

Works in the same way where users just book their place onto a Social that suits them and pay a small fee.

I used it first when I was in London on business and still meet up with a few of the people I met through it whenever I'm back in London. A success I think.
 
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
