What we're about

About the Meetup

Our meetup group has continually been evolving & expanding since we started in 2012, originally as Sydney "Project Managers", then as "PMI Sydney Chapter Meetup" and now as "Future Shapers".

We have awesome monthly events with guest speakers covering a breadth of topics from Innovation, Agile, Lean Product Development, Leadership and more. Covering a wide range of topics, our annual themes have progressed from Project Management, Agile, Agile across the Enterprise, Leadership and our current theme is Future Thinking & Innovation.

We have grown to over 2500 members and welcome all professionals from across the board who are involved in driving business/customer value using products and services globally.

In fact, it’s the diversity in our membership that we love. It helps us broaden our thinking, as we learn, discover, adapt & grow together.

With a growth mindset, we are continually expanding beyond our comfort zones, conducting experiments, sensing & adapting, learning fast, accelerating foresight and activating a greater ability to innovate and lead, all whilst having fun.

So come join fellow Future Shapers and be part of this transformative experience.
