Thanks for tuning in to Cut the Crap on Thursday night. Let us be the first to acknowledge it didn’t go 100% as planned. The irony of talking about “a clusterf*** rollercoaster of emotions” while dealing with a clusterf*** rollercoaster of tech issues was not lost on us.
Many of you who attended are new to Cut the Crap. Some liked it. Some openly loathed it. One of you mused “It felt like I accidentally licked a psychotropic frog” (kind of a compliment, no?).
Usually, our events are in person. So far they've had really great feedback, but we struggled to translate the in person experience online. We started Cut the Crap because we were bored of business events with regurgitated wisdom, awkward networking and tired topics - so our goal is to create salon-style gatherings that champion debate, in depth discussion, daring topics and thoughtful disagreement.
The events usually have a marketing slant. Thursday’s topic "The Pitfalls of the Positivity Complex" was less marketing focused than usual, but it's one that felt apt in mercurial 2020.
We’d love to hear your feedback in a reply email. Feel free to go unfiltered, we can’t profess thoughtful disagreement while not being open to criticism ourselves. If the event wasn’t what you expected and you’d prefer not to hear from us again, just let us know and we’ll remove you from the list (or unsubscribe here). In the same vein - all the proceeds go to charity - but if you'd prefer a refund, let us know and we'll issue you one on Eventbrite.
Nevertheless, scroll on for the event wrap!
