Last night I ventured to another wonderful event from The Hive – a networking series with an entrepreneurial bent of short presentations from successful local talents with stories to tell, advice to impart and inspiration to give. Last night’s speaker was Michael Anderson from local drinking delight Madame Brussells, an elevated kitschy indoor/outdoor bar that is a must for anyone in Melbourne – visiting and local.
Michael is a designer who views the world based on his heightened self-confessed self-awareness of his emotion and instinct at the precise moment he decides to draw on his creative cerebral powers.
In his short half hour-ish presentation Michael pointed to past and present designers, architects (he is also a studied architect) and quoted poetry. I found him to have a fascinating mind with a dry sense of humour that thinly veils sassy fabulousness.
Sadly, this refreshing lateral thinker washed over the heads of much of the audience. And I feel sorry for the rude lady who spoke loudly on her phone throughout his speech for she missed out on sharing the brilliance of Michael Anderson.
I’d like to thank The Hive organisers for continuously putting on a great show! #hivemelb
