Like Minds at Social Media Week, London 2014.

This year Like Minds are at CrowdShed, the new crowd funding platform and co-working space, focussing on five key industry verticals each day. So you can look forward to two sessions a day of socially oriented discussion and debate around Food, Fashion, Drink, Music and Luxury during Social Media Week, London.

Plus, of course, five nights of networking in the hidden little gem that is Bradley’s Spanish Bar down the road at 42-44 Hanway Street. Bar Chick likes it there too.
