Louise Holstein

Wine merchant and Mikes Table founder in London

Louise Holstein gave this ardent PechaKucha at London - Vol. 20 - PKNLDN 20 - WeWork and definitely garnered herself a new legion of admirers impressed with the wonderful work she is doing connecting strangers together over food around a table.

Louise set up Mike's Table 3 years ago. Mike's Table puts on evenings that come in pairs, the first is for paying guests which funds the second evening whereby guests are invited to enjoy exactly the same restaurant experience but for free. These guests are referred through charities and organisations supporting those in recovery from homelessness, illness or addiction, refugees, those on low income and the socially isolated. 

Professional chefs are involved in both evenings and devise the menus on the night using food that would otherwise go to waste.

Social Media : Writing On The Wall

@ VOL 1 ON NOV 01, 2014

Through social media, we are more connected and informed than ever before. Delwin Keasberry, a social media personality, points out the imbalance which exist in the face of ‘hot topics’ between those few with quick and assured opinions. So strong are their voices that they drown out the moderators, and the crowd. On the other hand, there are those who remain silent and wait for the storm to blow over. Though some of us choose to stand apart, we are not unaffected by these kinds of situations. Are we doomed to intemperate viewpoints dominating the world of social media? Can we imagine being part of the movement that is willing to push the gap between these two extremes and grow into better adjusted social networking community?
