Philofaxy Meet Up - London - Saturday 17 September 2022

We are planning a visit to UK in September 2022

This event is open to everyone, there are no qualifying requirements... if you enjoy good company and you like organisers and planners of any brand then you will be very welcome and you will be amongst friends.

London - Saturday 17 September 2022

So this is a 'calling notice' for people who would like to attend the Philofaxy Meet Up in London

Please read all of the post before you apply for a place on the meet up.

When and Where

We will meet initially at 12 noon at Vapiano in Great Portland Street. This is not far from Oxford Circus underground station.

They no longer use a smart card to track what you have ordered: 

"All orders are taken by scanning a QR code at your table, and we bring all food and drink to you – no more queuing for the chef."

Alternatively download the Vapiano app and use that, I think that will be easier.

Don't panic if you don't have a smartphone.... we will make sure you don't starve or die of thirst!

You can read all about the restaurant on their website here

During the meal there will be plenty of time for chatting and sharing organisers...

Our meet up will finish at about 6:30pm but you don't have to stay to the end. 

How to book a place on the meet up

To get a place on the meet up you need to email: steve[at]philofaxy[dot]com and mark your email 'September 2022 London Meetup', you can book a place straight away.

As places are allocated you will receive an email back again confirming your place on the meet up.

Please do not book travel tickets etc until you have a confirmed place. I will attempt to confirm places within 2-3 hours of receiving your email.

Additional Information

If you aren't familiar with London or how to get to Vapiano from the station you are arriving at then use the Transport for London Journey Planner, it's generally quite good. 

Once we have our full list of people, we will exchange email addresses and if you aren't familiar with London you might be able to get someone to meet you at the station you are arriving at.

Your safety on the day and your enjoyment on the day is of paramount importance to me, so don't be afraid to ask any questions by email, I want everyone who attends to get the most from the day.

Thank you... any questions?

Free for All Friday No. 712 by Nan

As much as we love our organizers, they are only tools. It's up to us to use them to have a system for using them effectively. 

Do you follow a system like First Things First, Getting Things Done, or Flylady? Or have you come up with your own system?

I've tried all of these systems and found them too complex for daily use. Most days, I keep my calendar updated and make a list of which tasks would be the best use of my time that day—including the ones that must be done that day or else! My system is a work in progress. I guess I've learned something from all the systems I've tried, but I always end up going back to what works best for me. 

I think the best organizer is the one that makes your life easier, not harder! 

As always on Fridays, feel free to share your thoughts on anything organizer-related!
