Tom - I too do graphics and split my time between the UK and the US - would be interested in learning more about your background in addition to the graphics - including training, experience with corporations and doing graphic classes - best Chris Chopyak

Hi Tom
Welcome to the UK Cafe Tom. Don't worry about the newness, I don't profess to be a guru on the subject of cafe. It is great to see that are numbers are growing and there are now 4 of us in the north of England! I am in Leeds so if you are ever passing through then let me know and we can have a cup of tea and share thoughts on the cafe.

Hi Tom, welcome to the World Cafe. I too am starting out as a consultant and facilitator I send you my best wishes! I am in the Uk at the moment but heading back to NZ, where my business will be based, next year. Perhaps we could share ideas, problem-solve together! Best,Janine
