Lean Coffee is a structured, but agenda-less meeting at which participants gather, build an agenda and begin discussing. Conversations are directed and productive because of the democratic nature of the meeting and the innate topic interest and expertise of the participants. Lean Coffee was created in Seattle, USA in 2009. See leancoffee.org for the original website.
Ad Esse are proud to further the Lean Coffee movement in the UK and use the format during our networking events.
