Common Collective Presents: Local Legends #1

We started Common Collective with one goal in mind; creating a collaborative coworking space for young creative on the Sunshine Coast. We wanted Common Collective to be a learning and collaboration hub and the go-to for advice for those wanting to get started in the creative industry. To launch Common Collective and speak true to our message, we decided to put together an epic event called “Local Legends”.

We rounded up four Local Legends of the Sunshine Coast who are living their dream and running their own successful businesses to come and chat to other young people about how they got their start, the challenges they face and their biggest lessons to date.

Now these guys aren’t just your standard run-of-the-mill business owners that you’ve never heard of. Our Legends are young, business owners doing cool s**t and contributing to the creative culture right here in our own backyard.

We were so lucky to have Mitch Surman (MS Surfboards and Glass Coffee Co), Leon Russell (Vintage Black Coffee Co), Steph Garbriel (Oceanzen Bikini) and Hayley Jenkin (Whole Hearted Studio) come and speak to us in real terms about what its like working for yourself in today’s creative industries.

It was an epic night filled with amazing insight, knowledge and general good times. We were lucky enough to have Hayden from On the Day Films record the whole event for us so that you could watch these guys speak all over again (or for the first time if you missed it!)

Keep your eyes peeled for the first clip of our Local Legends night…dropping very soon!
