What we're about

Welcome to our Socialising with International Professionals page!

If you are an international professional who is new to the area, and would like to meet other similar, like-minded people in Southampton, then this is the perfect group for you!

This group was one of the first (if not the first) international and social groups that started in Southampton in 2013, when I was the Ambassador for a worldwide international group in this region, and we have been hosting events here for nearly 5 years since. We thrive on 'quality over quantity', where you will be very warmly welcomed by all the members, as well as myself, and our socials are really relaxing, fun and a great way to meet other people with the same international professional mind set.

We hold regular socials, as well as themed nights throughout the year, including 'civilised conversations', comedy evenings, live music nights, wine tastings socials, and 'dress up' events for Christmas and Halloween, which are additional fun activities and further ways for you to get to know other international professionals in the group.

For our meetings, we get many new members, as well as regular members who love coming back, and you will be able to meet many professionals from all over the world and different backgrounds!

Do come and join us and I am sure you will not be disappointed!

We look forward to meeting you,

Alan.

A Visit to the Art Gallery!

Guildhall Square

Not sure if you know, but Southampton has many "hidden cultural gems" that many people may not be aware of, including two fabulous world-leading art galleries!

This is really just a relaxed social, for anyone interested in art, to come join me for a casual stroll through one (and possibly) both of the galleries on a Saturday afternoon.

We may have to book in advance (the galleries are free), but this is really just to gauge interest, and for me to get a feel of where this group stands. I know both galleries well, having given talks at both of them, so happy to act as an informal guide too, if you have never been. If people are up for it, we may go on to a cafe or bar afterwards to continue the conversation - so sign up if you are interested!

Southampton Science and Engineering Festival 2022!

University of Southampton Highfield Campus

The annual Science & Engineering Day at the University of Southampton is returning in March 2022!

This has always been a very popular event locally, with thousands of visitors every year before the Covid-19 Pandemic, and featuring lots of fun hands-on activities as well as interesting displays such as science magic shows and entertaining lectures. No previous knowledge of science is required!

Although events are free, we would ask you to register on the website, which will be announced in due course, with details of all the shows and activities available. Note that several of the more popular shows/activities are timed, so you will need to book these in advance.

Science and Engineering Day is part of a wider week+ long festival taking place between 10-20 March, #SotSEF.

Note: if I am involved in organising the event again this year, I may not be available to host you directly on the day, but there will be lots of go do and see, so for now, just keep the date(s) in the diary, as there will be plenty to keep you entertained and lots of very interesting people to talk to throughout the event!
