Enjoy dinner drinks and a chance to meet…
Charlotte Roach is Founder of London's exercise event business, Rabble, a sports club on a mission to revolutionise exercise by putting enjoyment at the centre of their activities. Their games are inspired by playground games (e.g British Bulldog), movies (e.g. The Hunger Games) or sports they have mashed up (e.g. Dodgeball)! Charlotte Roach was an Olympic trainee before a serious cycling accident. After rehabilitation, she cycled from Beijing to London (yes, you read that correctly!) to raise money for the air ambulance that saved her life. She’ll be sharing her story, how it lead to her launching her business and plenty of insider tips from the rollercoaster ride she’s had since she left her steady day job!

This dinner is perfect for…
People at the “ideas stage” with their business and looking to take the next step.
If you'd like to join but don't fall neatly within the above categories, please email us at hello@tablecrowd.com to discuss whether this is the right dinner for you.

The dinner conversation will be…
Charlotte is a truly inspiration lady with all she has overcome and achieved in spite of the setbacks she’s faced. She’ll be sharing her story including:
✓ Taking the leap from your day job to running your own business (what to expect)
✓ Her story – from idea – to launch – to growth
✓ Getting those first loyal users - and how they can help you grow.
✓ Her mistakes! Key business lessons learnt in founding and managing Rabble.
Expect to leave with practical advice (and plenty of inspiration!) for taking the next step with your own idea or business, as well as building the network you’ll need to support you in the coming months.

Who Charlotte Roach?
Charlotte Roach was an Olympic trainee, who had just been accepted onto the 2012 Olympics acceleration programme for triathlon, before a serious cycling accident ended her professional sporting career. Once rehabilitated, Charlotte cycled 16,000km through 16 different countries, raising almost £10k for the air ambulance that saved her life. She used the setbacks that she had faced through her cycling accident, to motivate her, on new journey and career. Rubbish at most team games and struggling to take sports seriously, she just wanted to play different games with her mates every day. Finding this surprisingly impossible in London she quit her day job to 'live off fear' and founded Rabble.

What’s included?
You get a private dining experience with a knowledgeable speaker, 2 course dinner with wine or 2 soft drinks plus highly curated and relevant crowd. This is an intimate dinner for 12 guests.
