Potluck Sessions Round 2!

Olivia-Repotente-Potluck-Sessions-Feb201627d

And just like that — the 2nd run of Potluck Sessions is done. It was such a pleasure to see new faces and catch up with old friends at the same time. The lovely people from Toby’s Estate Whitespace Manila gave us the warmest welcome and made the place just the perfect venue for an inspiring Saturday afternoon. Our speakers were all rockstars. Best part was they didn’t mind how we all shamelessly munched on while listening to them talk.

We are truly honoured to have partners who share our vision of building a community that shares: Moleskine, Bath Origins, The Bistro Group, Philstar Marketing and Development Inc, The Zen Institute, Buffalo’s Wings N’ Things, Chubby’s Rib Shack, Events Specialists, Independent Minds Productions, and Vitt Salvador (for the photos). We can’t thank you guys enough!

For those who were there, hope these photos will make you remember and smile. For those who weren’t, hope these will make you want to join us next time. See you all on the next one! :) Love, Studio O
