A friendly, supportive and productive monthly virtual networking meeting for entrepreneurs with any form of disability or health issues.

This is a regular opportunity to bring together business owners with any form of physical or mental health issues to network together, advise each other and build up contacts across the whole of the UK.

The monthly online networking session will feature a short 10 minute talk by a speaker with a health issue - or someone who is an advocate for those with a disability - before we go into breakout rooms so attendees can network with one another in a friendly and supportive environment.

This month's guest speaker will be Michał Kamil Piotrowski who will be presenting on 'Did you know creativity can help you with your business?' It's often all about thinking in new ways. It seems that being creative is difficult as we often lose the potential for free thinking once grown up due to the parameters of the systems we live in. However, creativity is easy to rediscover and one of the most fun and effective ways is through making experimental art!

Michał Kamil Piotrowski is a visual poet, text artist, and curator living and working in Folkestone, UK. He mostly writes experimental, visual, and technology-powered poetry. He enjoys making poetry interactive and he often works with found text. The themes he explores the most are technology, politics, love, and mental illnesses. His first book, an interactive text ‘The Cursory Remix’ (2021, Contraband Books) has been co-written by Google Translate. His second experimental book 'The Idiotlect Dicktionary' was published by Veer in 2023. His TED talk 'The Power of Experimentation: Poetry for the 21st Century' is worth watching.

These virtual networking meetings are part of the FSB's ongoing Business Without Barriers campaign which aims to encourage inclusive, supportive workplaces and offer advice for the country's army of disabled entrepreneurs.
