Professional Networking Events

Connection & collaboration

You can still connect with us via our online events during COVID-19:

Returning home after living abroad is all about re-connection, however, while we are all in the midst of practicing social distancing, this does not mean disconnection for our community.

As way of building and maintaining our connection will be hosting a virtual catch-ups online every fortnight (on Wednesday evenings) to give you the opportunity to ‘e-meet’ and most importantly, connect with each other and Insync Network Group’s CEO and founder, Margot Andersen.

Re-settling in your home country can feel isolating enough as it is, which is why we want to hear what would be most helpful to you as a returned expat during this time of change and uncertainty.

As with all our events, the virtual meeting will provide you with the opportunity to meet fellow global thinkers and repatriates who are navigating or who have successfully navigated the return journey ‘home’. We also welcome expats from overseas who are currently living and working abroad and who may be considering embarking upon a repatriation journey.

Simply book your complimentary ticket via the links below and we’ll send you a link to the meeting ahead of time. 

So, pour yourself a glass of your favourite tipple, dial in and join us for an informal chat.

Sydney, 2019

Insync Network Cocktail Event - Sydney

Jan McGrath spent 17 years abroad in the US, UK and Hong Kong, and is a senior leader of global strategic business transformation and change initiatives, within the financial services industry. Jan returned to a new home in Australia, Sydney, having been originally from Melbourne. Her return journey came with challenges familiar to many repatriates, such as articulating her professional experience to local employers. While her work was the impetus for her move abroad in 1997, it was a need to be closer to friends and family in Australia that brought her home.
