Tipple.101 by James @BecomeKnown – Tuttle.101 by @NatashaSexton


April 2010 sees two meetup’s planned…

Building upon the success of @BecomeKnown’s March meetup (which received a great review in the local news and attracted some new faces) I’m very happy to see a true Tuttle101 community spirit emerging – hope to see you at one/both of these:

In addition… some feedback on the following would be most welcome please! ‘-)

Since I organised the first Tuttle.101 back in September 2009 I’ve tried to encourage one simple philosophy: ‘Tuttle101 is not owned or run by me @FellowCreative, it is in fact owned by, and exists because of a growing community of people – and this means that the community are free to shape it, use it, or discard it, as they please’.

I’ve done my utmost to keep the Tuttle and Tipple experience(s) very separate from the world’s of sales, marketing, corporate sponsorship and paid-monthly-memberships but since January I must admit that I have given much thought to the introduction of a logo/identity, not because I want to constrain, dictate or monetize, but because I believe that such a visual key may be useful in establishing further community support.

E.g. over the past few months various people have asked me if I could supply them some  visual assets for blog posts and articles but I’ve had nothing to give them – I’m convinced there’s only so many photos of people drinking coffee you can handle =)

With the above in mind, I’d like to introduce two things and I’d love to hear your thoughts please:

  1. an eNewsletter sign-up system (built using CampaignMonitor or MailChimp) to send out a single email notification each month to a Tuttle.101 and Tipple.101 attendee list (1 email per month, with a simple subscribe/unsubscribe feature – it’ll be concise and to the point, with a simple design theme!).
    >> NOW AVAILABLE HERE

  2. two logo’s for community use – one logo for tuttle.101, the other for tipple.101 (please tell me what you think of the following, they have been designed to work alongside pretty much anything in terms of imagery or colour – if the community like them I’ll prepare a host of downloadable assets for you to use on blog posts – and as you see fit).

The growing community of Tuttle.101 has lead to repeat comments, ideas and suggestions from attendees:

  1. Not everyone can make 9:30 am on a Monday morning.
  2. Coffee doesn’t calm nerves when introducing yourself to a room full of strangers – a beer or glass of wine might prove even more social.
  3. Its difficult to get round and speak to everyone at a single Tuttle, and many folk feel bad interrupting/joining others long conversations.


With the above in mind, we’re adding an evening Tipple to the February Calendar – inspired by the fantastic Royal Tunbridge Wells Twuddle.

Tuttle.101 – Monday 15th February 2010 (9:30 am)
will be upstairs in The George Vaults Rochester (Kent)
(35 The High Street, Rochester – click here for a map)


Tipple.101 – Wednesday 17th February 2010 (7:30 pm)
will be upstairs in The George Vaults Rochester (Kent)
(35 The High Street, Rochester – click here for a map)


A few additional things to note:

1) A big thank you to Matthew at Innovation Centre Medway who supplied the free coffee and tea at last months Tuttle.101

2) You don’t need to sign-up to attend either but please do try and leave a comment below (with preferably your actual name) so there’s a rough idea who and how many might be in attendance.

3) If you’d like more information about the above or would like to sponsor the coffee, please email Carl at tuttle101@fellow.ventures or call me directly on: 07929 601737. More information on the ‘now global’ Tuttle Club can be found via the original tuttleclub blog. We hope you like the sound of the above and look forward to seeing you there! =)
