    Owner & Collaborators
    At MozLdn we have this really great large open common room, with Wifi, kitchen facilities and AV. The common space is open to fellow Mozillians to come and work from, and I have extended this invitation to our local partners. We always have someone in the space, working from one of the booths and making new friends at the coffee machine, which the entire team enjoys.
    In the last year the London team, in collaboration with WPR, has created an events program. In 2015 we hosted over 200 events with a small team of 10 people. In 2016 we want to increase this number and open the office even more to our community. This project will document this process and hopefully be used as a tool for other spaces.


    Show me the money- 28th of January

    Event request came through our london-events@mozilla.org address. Run by three young women, this free speaker series interested me so I offered to host. Set up was very easy, over a series of emails and the organisers were very well organised on the night. They arrived on time @5:30 to set up, and helped reset the room quickly post event. They supplied their own snacks and drinks. The speakers were thoughtful and interesting. The audience was of a slightly older age than we normally get, with 25 in attendance.
    Participants were not fully aware of Mozilla or our mission pre event
