The Challenges of Organizing Social Events (dinner & discussion)
This event is for people who would like to get better at taking the initiative to organize social events with friends. We will discuss how can we overcome challenges involved with: initiating one-on-one hangouts with friends, initiating group hangouts with friends, and improving the quality of our social gatherings in general. As always, this event will provide the opportunity for a thoughtful, respectful and engaging discussion. I have over 20 years experience organizing social events with friends in Toronto and Vancouver and I know what it's like to move to a new city and having to build a new social network from scratch. I'm also the founder and international coordinator of where I've helped initiate over 1,000 events in 11 countries for the past 6 years. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING: 1.

    What we're about

    My name is Glen Brauer and I'm also the founder of Meaningful Discussions ( which is established in 11 countries. I've helped to initiate over 1,000 events around the world and I'm excited to be the host and organizer of the Meaningful Friendships group in Vancouver.

    This group is for people who are interested in discussing the challenges and solutions involved in finding and maintaining meaningful friendships in Vancouver.

    Our events will include presentations, discussions and yes, the ability to socialize in a safe and welcoming environment.

    These events are coordinated by the Meaningful Events Association which is a registered not-for-profit society in BC, Canada.

    (If you notice that our previous events are related to volunteering, this is because we've recently changed our name from Meaningful World to Meaningful Friendships which is now more focused).
