Professional Networking Events

Connection & collaboration

Our events are held in Melbourne, Sydney and other locations across Australia throughout the year to provide our network with the opportunity to meet fellow returning expatriates and globally minded individuals.

The events bring our community together to meet others who are navigating – or who have successfully navigated – the return journey ‘home’. We also welcome expats from overseas who are currently living and working in Australia, or those who are about to embark on their own return journey.

In the spirit of connection and re-connection, our events offer the opportunity to share experiences and glean some advice from those who have walked in your shoes before.

Featuring Q&A sessions with our members, you will hear first-hand their personal transition story, the highs and the lows, their insights and their learnings when it comes to managing and leveraging global experience.

The global stories we share hail from all corners of the world, from the UK to the USA, Asia, Europe and beyond, and represent a diverse range of experience.  

Join us and meet our network of global citizens who continue to enjoy and appreciate the diversity and opportunity that living abroad brings.

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.

Originally from Sydney, Blair is a former New York resident herself, and worked in the city for three years. The flight path between New York and Sydney is now a well-travelled journey for Blair, who journeys back and forth regularly since returning to her Sydney base a decade ago.
