What we're about

Sydney can be lonely place. It can be even more isolated if you are a bit older or if you are an expatriate who does not have a social network in the city. You seek substantive, intelligent conversations and not mindless chatter.

We want to bring together like minded people who prefer to socialise in relatively quiet locations including quiet bars and restaurants where people can establish connections and friendships beyond mere acquaintances.

Our meetups will be carefully organised monthly to ensure we are small enough in number so that we remember most names and exchange numbers with many by the end of it. We will also try and maintain a reasonable balance between women and men at our events.

We will strive to offer a comforting and warm group which is multinational with a high degree of sensitivity and will be welcoming. We will try to maintain a clubby close knit feel to our group.

You may be single, attached, married, separated or a grand dad...we do not care..(this is not a group exclusively for singles, couples are very welcome!) but be open to new friendships and experiences. We could go to bars, restaurants, cruises, trips, concerts, sports events, holidays, dances and parties, yoga etc. and so the meetups will be diverse.

This club will be about friendships and connections but above all having fun together with friends.

Wanted Part-time Hosts/Organisers (Generous expenses paid!)

(Please be aware that this is an announcement and not a meetup plan. If you would like to host meetups then please get in touch by email or whatsapp at the details below) Would you like to HOST meetups, get experience with different cultures, make new friends and also have your expenses covered? Are you a people person? Do you love to go out, plan and organize events, meet new people and help people connect with each other? If you can relate to this then we may have the perfect opportunity for YOU! You get great experience, learn new skills, rapidly expand your own network and you also have generous expenses paid for doing something you LOVE to do! Kindly note: This is a voluntary part-time role with generous expenses paid (this is not employment) of about 3 to 5 hours a month. This role is a great start for someone who has taken a break from work, just moved into the city, someone who needs to network for their main occupation or just for someone who is socially confident and loves meeting people! This is also a wonderful opportunity for self development since organising gives you great insight into human psychology, group dynamics, strategy and event management. It also makes you the social leader of the group and enables you to rapidly expand your network. Here’s the deal:- - We have over 525,000 members in 32 cities with over 150 meetup groups and you can become a part of our rapidly growing global team of volunteer hosts/organizers in your city. - You’ll be hosting our socialising evenings, mainly on weekend evenings, for our groups. If you are up for this satisfying yet challenging role then get in touch with Dan at [masked] or write him a Whatsapp or text on [masked]. Please be aware that you can also sign up to host a one-off event and see if this is something you wish to pursue on a long term basis! We look forward to hearing from you!
