Hosted second Weekend Club

After a successful first outing and 15 subscribers, we hosted the second Weekend Club.

The goal here was to implement a bunch of improvements from last time, most of which I learnt through the survey sent out after.

This is what we changed:

🎶 Added background music, to provide a bit more ambience

🤼‍♂️ Made a dedicated area for collaboration, with whiteboards, stationary, post-its and pens

🖥️ Provided more screens to plug laptops into

💻 Scheduled a demo at the end of the day, to encourage accountability, inspiration and learning from each other

⏰ Made automated Slack and email reminders for future sessions, including all details

📖 Using Glide, we've created a no-code app with details of all Weekend Club members and upcoming sessions

This was a great session, and I was particularly impressed by the demo. Some ideas were earlier stage than others, but the standard is super high. I'm really excited to see some of these products out in the wild :D

Priorities for improvements next time:

📨 Finalise welcome packs for early subscribers

🤼‍♂️ Add a larger, portable whiteboard for collaboration

👥 Aim to add 5 more subscribers to hit 20 total (potentially the limit for the beta trial, running until end of January)

📝 Add a new section to our Glide app, aggregating all links in the #resource section of our Slack

I'm really enjoying this, as you might be able to tell.

    This is fascinating. I wish something like this existing in my neck of the woods (WA, USA)

      That's cool to hear. Attendees seem to enjoy it so far.

      My focus is to make a twice monthly event as good as reasonably possible, then see where it takes me. If I think there's an opportunity to scale, I'll seriously consider it.

      Would you be interested in setting something similar up locally?

        I wish I could but I'm working on my own idea execution. The "accountability as a service" stuck out as something I could really use.
