Got a quick question about running your marketing agency, looking for career advice, interested in volunteering with AMA Triangle, or just want to say hello? Inspired by Beck Tench‘s office hours, I hold weekly Office Hours [nearly] every Tuesday in Raleigh (and other times in other cities).
I’m available 11:30am-12:30pm on Tuesdays at Videri Chocolate Factory (327 W. Davie St., Raleigh, NC 27601), apart from a few “blackout dates.” Anything we discuss is confidential—apart from our being in a public space, of course.
SPECIAL EVENT: Valentine’s Day Office Hours in Columbia, SC on February 14th
This is a free, one-time special event, from 2:00-4:00pm on Tuesday, February 14, 2017.
Why I Share Free Advice at Office Hours
Why do I do Office Hours? Having a standing one-hour block each week helps me fit more face-to-face meetings into my schedule. I’d love to meet you!
There’s no charge—my Office Hours are free for you. Office Hours aren’t a substitute for an in-depth Sakas & Company consulting project or coaching session, of course—but buy a cup of Stumptown coffee, hot or iced chocolate, or cocoa-nib tea from Videri’s coffee counter and let’s chat!
How to Sign Up (or Show Up)
Otherwise, Office Hours are first-come, first-served.
If you’re visiting from out of town, tweet me at @KarlSakas or call/text me at 919-410-6224 to double-check ahead of time, just in case (I may have an occasional unexpected conflict beyond what’s listed above, or a client call may have run long).
Parking & Directions
Set your GPS for 327 W. Davie St., Raleigh, NC 27601. There’s free parking in the adjacent lot—no need to pay for on-street parking. Drive under the metal crane at the entrance and let the parking attendant know you’re going to Videri.
I usually can’t stay past 12:30pm, but if you want lunch nearby, visit Jose and Sons (Mexican & Southern fusion) in the same building or The Pit (eastern and western NC BBQ) across the street. Note that the parking company may charge you for using the lot if you cross Davie Street to the Pit.
