Professional Networking Events

Connection & collaboration

Our quarterly events provide our network with the opportunity to meet fellow repatriates and globally minded individuals.

Featuring a Q&A with one of our network members, you will hear firsthand our network’s global transition story, the highs and the lows, their insights and learnings when it comes to managing and leveraging global experience. The evenings bring together other globally minded and experienced people who enjoy the diversity and opportunity that living abroad brings. 

Pop-up events are also held in other locations across Australia throughout the year. Connect with us here to keep up to date.

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.
