The Hive is back with Creative Mornings Singapore. We’re a bit late into April’s theme but the topic of discussion for April is Procrastinate. “Procrastination can be a sort of art form: the art of deferred action. It’s a technique that’s got a bad reputation, one often tinged with shame. But it can also be a way to claim the ways you wish for your time. It harbors creative possibilities, too.”
Join us as we speak with the founders of The Woke Salaryman, Ruiming He and Goh Wei Choon.
🎟 RSVP here (TBC) and we’ll send you the zoom link closer to the date!
📅 When: Friday, 7th May 2021
🕒 Time: 8.30am – 9.30am
📍 Where: Zoom + The Hive Singapore Facebook Live
The Woke Salaryman (TWS) was founded in 2019 by two creatives, Ruiming (a copywriter) and Wei Choon (an illustrator/animator).
Both passionate about creating effective content, they started TWS as a way to showcase the power of social media and digital content to educate and inspire people to cultivate a healthy and sustainable relationship with money. Through each well-crafted, engaging, and relatable comic, they aim to make the typically boring and complicated topic of personal finance entertaining and more digestible to understand. A year after their first viral comic about earning $100k by 30, they both saw the page’s potential and quit their jobs to run TWS full-time. At two years old, TWS currently has more than 200k followers on both Facebook and Instagram, and continues to grow every day.

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.
Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme.
