    For most of the early part of the day, people were chatty, bouncing ideas off each other and making new connections.

    For some co-workers, it was a chance to work with their regular colleagues in the warmth of the sun. Others were working on ideas that they had in mind, but hadn't yet executed. A few other sneaky characters had managed to quietly escape their day job, and were enjoying the change. But most people were getting on with their work, or at least improving their ideas.

    A number of talks were also on later in the day, providing entrepreneurs with a late afternoon boost of inspiration.
