Bright&Early is a free, monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types designed to promote creativity in our city.
The concept is simple: come drink coffee + eat breakfast while being inspired by the creative community in our city. All for free.
This month's speaker, Jim Harper of Boxing Clever will be discussing how to never profit in advertising. He's going to teach whoever is there to never make money, keep making things that are unprofitable, and to teeter on the edge of mental insanity on a daily basis, by trying to cram everything into your life and agency before you die - hopefully.
