Earlier this month we hosted another successful Club Monday event for all the Good Companies in the Good Monday network. And this time for real because the evening took place in our brand new workspace at Skelbækgade in Copenhagen.

GetBartender was on the spot to shake us all some springfull cocktails and prepare us for the first speaker of the night — Michael Arnoldus, the CTO of Good Monday. He wanted everybody to imagine being the CEO of Good Monday positioned in tight competition with another fast growing office management platform. What bold move could we come up with to drastically turn this into our advantage?

This little exercise was intended to give the office managers a chance to think of something they are longing for in the way we are running the platform today.

After a nice and healthy dinner delivered by California Kitchen — and yet another cocktail — we were accompanied by the GRØD-founder, Lasse Skjønning Andersen, whose mantra is “Fed Energi!” He captured us all with his very personal story of building an empire of porridge out of pain and anger from losing his mother as a child. To punish himself he started living solely on porridge but soon he discovered that it actually did him good and that changed his life path completely.

To Lasse it is not only about serving great food at GRØD. It is about passing on the “Fat Energy!” which is the main goal for the 75 employees at his six — soon seven — flag stores. His philosophy of providing, facilitating and creating that great energy and good vibe is what makes him such a great match for our Club Monday event. Fat energy can take people further than they can imagine so keep it up, guys.

Thank you all for joining — hoping to see you next time!
