There are nearly 500 of us at MailChimp, and we work hard all week long. When the end of the week rolls around, we’re ready for a change of pace. So we shut our laptops, load up on donuts and bagels, and settle in for Coffee Hour.
Years ago, when the company was still tiny, this Friday morning gathering was for talking about what’s going on around the office. But as we’ve grown, it’s become our excuse to invite the most creative, interesting, thought-provoking, and downright weird folks to come and tell us all about what they do. They make us laugh (and sometimes cry), challenge our thinking, and leave us inspired. Here are just a few of our recent favorites.
