About the speaker
Marie Fitzpatrick & Nic Murray, of the Good Bitches Baking Trust
In 2014, distressed about the sorry state of the world, Marie Fitzpatrick & Nic Murray did the most sensible thing they could think of – got drunk and whinged. And then got very drunk and decided it would be totally possible to bake things better. In the absence of any other ideas for saving the world, they decided to run with it and have been ever since. Turns out a LOT of other people want to bake it better too.
The (sober) hypothesis of the Good Bitches Baking Trust is this: by providing a “moment of sweetness” on an otherwise shitty day, the spirits of strangers can be lifted just enough to get them through that day, and if they got through that day – maybe one they thought they couldn’t get through - then they could get through the next.
It might sound like a fairly ridiculous thing to expect from a piece of cake, but Marie and Nic knew from their own dark days that an act of kindness or a moment of respite, no matter how small, can be day-changing.
Good Bitches Baking isn’t about baking. It’s about creating that moment of respite. It’s about small things having a big impact, on everyone involved. Maire and Nic will share some of these moments with us, and explain why moments of sweetness are more important than ever right now.
At antipodes we believe the heroes of the table should be the food and fine wine so we chose a water source that has a mineral fingerprint subtle enough to refresh but not alter the palate. Antipodes is very proud to support CreativeMornings Auckland because everything we do in life requires a creative mind.
We’d like to think that most creative thinking happens with coffee at your side. So when given the opportunity to support CreativeMornings, it made sense for us to shout everyone a cup of coffee. It’s also a chance for us to showcase what we do, what’s important to us - our links with people we buy from, the various methods of making, and most importantly, share the coffees we source from around the world.
Like fresh coffee and buttery toast, BizDojo and Creative Mornings go very well together. Here at BizDojo our number one priority is our hard working coworking community, and we recognise the passion that Creative Mornings has for the community they have also built. We’re stoked to be able to host 2017’s Creative Mornings under the Collider programme, and we look forward to seeing creative Wellingtonians bright and early each month ready to connect, be inspired and drink a good coffee
ometimes, the best inspiration can happen before 9am. At CreativeMornings, that seems to always be the case. Flying Saucer is hugely passionate about producing inspiring videos and capturing real stories. So when the opportunity arose to film the CreativeMornings talks, it seemed like a match made in heaven. We hope these visual records help to spread the talks far and wide, and also serve as a reminder about the power of engaging video content.
