Be Ready for the World’s Best Design Events in 2018 — From design legends to hometown heroes, CreativeMornings speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme. 

Back to 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. With a pretty simple concept —breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month—, every event would be free of charge and open to anyone. Nowadays, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. And Daily Design News is about to show some great reason why you shouldn’t miss it!

We believe in the power of community. We believe in giving a damn. We believe in face-to-face connections, in learning from others, in hugs and high-fives.


What is CreativeMornings?

CreativeMornings is a breakfast lecture series for the creative community. They’re free, monthly events that feature a short talk, Q+A, and breakfast. The local chapters not only celebrate a city’s creative talent but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded people. These events always happen one Friday a month from 8:30 am to 10 am.

Why is Attending CreativeMornings a Good Idea?

#01. You’ll gain insights and best practices relevant to my work

From design legends to hometown heroes, CreativeMornings speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme. Past speakers include visionaries such as Seth Godin, Ben Chestnut, Jessica Hische, Debbie Millman, Simon Sinek and David Kelley, among many others. These accomplished individuals share their stories and lessons they’ve learned throughout their careers and in doing so, pass on invaluable knowledge to the audience.


#02. You’ll also make valuable connections

By attending the event and representing our company there, you will be able to tell others about what we do and make connections that can help us in the future. Every event includes networking time before and after a talk. This is a great opportunity to meet with creatives across various industries who are willing to share and learn from one another. Due to the free nature of events, CreativeMornings is accessible to a broad spectrum of creatives, from CEOs and students to startup founders and independent freelancers.


«We bring together people who are driven by passion and purpose, confident that they will inspire one another, and inspire change in neighborhoods and cities around the world» — from CreativeMornings’ Manifesto

#03. You’ll be able to use what you learn to create shareable online content

At any one of these events around the world, it is common to see people Tweeting, Facebooking and Instagramming throughout the morning. By being engaged in the online conversation, you will be able to further expand our reach and connect with the growing online CreativeMornings community around the world. Which means that, by posting on social media directly from the event, you will be embedding your company into a community of thought leaders and innovators.


#04. You’ll bring back lessons and best practices to share with your team

The CreativeMornings community is not only filled with talented people eager to share and collaborate but after listening to an inspiring talk and meeting with others in a spirited environment. So, you definitely will head back to your office filled with new ideas and information worthy of sharing with my colleagues.
