‘The atmosphere at these events is always uplifting. It reminds you why you love writing so much. You go home renewed, ready to face the blank page again.’

‘I went to network and as a result an award winning documentary filmmaker has agreed to make a documentary with my client Nisha Kalema and I also have half a dozen or so other new contacts to follow up on.’
George Hargreaves, Producer and Agent
'I attended the Christopher Hampton breakfast club yesterday and when I left, I felt like an over excited puppy! The atmosphere in the Phoenix Artist Club in London was fantastic, I felt like I stepped back in time, as if the club still looked the same as 100 years ago, so charming. Of course, meeting Christopher and hearing his stories was magnificent, I could have listened to him all day.’
Marie Delanote, Writer
'What an inspiring afternoon, listening to Christopher Hampton talk to an audience of fellow screenwriters, as well as novelists, playwrights and filmmakers. I found his anecdotes, advice and stories inspiring, helpful and most of all hopeful. One of the best things about the London Breakfast Club is connecting with fellow writers and filmmakers. You never know who you might talk to. It might be your next writing partner, someone who can help you with your project, or someone who you can help, or even just someone who tells you to get off Facebook and get on with it. Wonderful afternoon.'
Dorothée Kuepers, Screenwriter
