Support Breakfast grew out of the Support Driven community as a weekly breakfast for London-based customer support folk to get together and eat pancakes, talk about our experiences with support and keep one another company.
If you’re into podcasts, you can find our Support Breakfast podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud, TuneIn and Google Play Music, as well as your favourite podcast app – just search for “Support Breakfast”.
We still meet almost every Thursday and people are welcome to drop in and out and attend on weeks when they can. Read more about the history and building of our Support Breakfast community in this blog post: Building a London Community One Breakfast at a Time

She hates bad customer service, wasps and homophobia.

She loves books (fantasy preferred), film, photography, stimulating conversation, eating copious amounts of plants and all varieties of tea and coffee. Dislikes dark winters, negative attitudes, injustice, inequality and animal cruelty.
