Scanners Night

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

Here at Startacus we love finding out about all sorts of interesting people, places and things and then of course letting you guys know all about them too. And the latest of these is the curiously named Scanners Night. For those of you who don’t know ( don’t worry, we didn’t either), a “Scanner” is a term coined by the American author Barbara Sher and describes someone who is “a creative person with multiple interests and lots of ideas”.

If you’re the sort of person who has lots of creative ideas, scanners nightwhether it’s writing a book or starting a business; who always has lots of different projects on the go (many that perhaps never actually get finished) or who would absolutely dread the thought of having to stick to one job for the rest of your life, chances are you are a Scanner.
And the good news is , you’re not alone - there are lots of Scanners out there. And if you’re lucky enough to be in Central London, you could get the chance to meet some of them at a Scanners Night. Held monthly, Scanners Nights aren’t at all like a stereotypical business or networking meetup. Admittedly you may listen to an expert speaker or participate in a mini workshop; but you’ll also get the chance to do a whole lot more. You get the chance to get practical advice there and then about your own creative ideas and projects. Together with about 60 other people who are trying to turn their own ideas into reality, you get the chance to brainstorm, to share advice, to build new contacts and to come up with new ways to realise your ideas, whatever they may be.

The next Scanners Night is due to take place on October 10th and will see one of the founders of coaching in the UK, Myles Downey sharing some words of wisdom on “how to enable genius in ourselves and others.” Pretty inspiring topic!

If you’re interested in finding out more, why not give it a go yourself and get along to the next event. And if you can’t make it to London, you don’t have to miss out. You can sign up to get recordings of every Scanners Night so you can still be involved no matter where you are in the world.
