As the end of 2012 approaches, we thought it’d be nice to have an update from our beloved city curators. To kick us off, Chloe Nicholls in London, aka @ThatGirl_Chloe, highlights some of her most appreciated events, spaces and top moments of 2012.

Best event for meeting people?
Best event for content shared and learnings?
General Assembly London for key learnings and workshops, and some favourite conferences and events include Social Media Week, Internet Week Europe, leWeb London, ReMix, Mind the Product and Wired 2012.
Personal event stye preference?
Although I attend many conferences and big events every year, I prefer smaller panels and workshops, with a great MC who can ask direct questions – not only to the panel but to the audience too and get a debate going. I find that it’s the people in the audience who sometimes have the most interesting answers/points of view rather than the speakers or panel.
Favourite source of local community news?
Twitter and Facebook is where I find out all my industry goss!
Favourite coworking space?
Favourite cafe with wifi?
The Breakfast Club! (Good place for breakfast, lunch or both; brunch – plus they have great wifi access).
What’s been a personal highlight and not so high moment of the year?
What have you enjoyed about being involved with The Fetch in 2012?
The Fetch has been a great way to tap into London’s tech, business and creative communities and keep up-to-date on going on for professionals. By curating the newsletter, I get to discover new events and share them with the rest of the community. I’ve definitely met some interesting characters along the way!
What are you looking forward to in 2013?
I can’t wait to start hosting The Fetch Conversations – which are thought-leader dinners for The Fetch community plus continue to work with our brilliant Community Ambassadors and build the community for a wider audience.
