inspired WJ Talks

WJ London has teamed up with our favourite Shoreditch Hotel, The Hox to create three inspiring, interesting and exciting talks by people in the creative industries. One by yours truly - the Jack team, one by amazing creative agency Protein and one by Brille Records creator Leo Silverman.

Held in Hoxton Hotel's really cool new space, The Apartment, the talks all aim to inspire all you guys who are thinking about going it alone in the creative industries - setting up companies and making something new. Of course if you're just nosey as to how these companies came about then that's fair enough too!

These talks are free and there are Q&As afterwards along with some free drinks to get the ideas flowing and the ears listening. There are however 40 places per talk so you will need to sign up for your place, click the more link below to do that.
