Professional Networking Events

Connection & collaboration

As we navigate the impacts of COVID-19 you can still connect with us via our online and in-person pop-up event series. 

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 we will be hosting a combination of virtual catch-ups and in person events when restrictions allow. Our virtual events will give you the opportunity to ‘e-meet’ and most importantly, connect with each other and Insync Network Group’s CEO and founder, Margot Andersen. Our in person pop-up events will allow us to make the most of the moments we have together!  

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 all the details ahead of time.

19th October 2021

10.00am – 11.00am 

Webinar: Managing Career Repatriation 

For many senior professionals, repatriation is a major career hurdle. Not only can you feel challenged about how to best localise your global experience, you often need to translate this experience to a significantly smaller and highly competitive employment market. 

With current pandemic restrictions, lockdowns and ever changing market conditions, the need for robust planning has never been more important. 

Join our founder, Margot Andersen, for a complimentary webinar designed to provide you with relevant market insights, trends and a practical framework for managing your career transition.

Webinar: with Margot Andersen & John Versace.

There is no doubt that two of the biggest concerns for returning expats centre on the areas of financial and career management. 

Our founder, Margot Andersen will be joined by Senior Financial Adviser John Versace (Apt Wealth Partners) for a special webinar event where they will share the key considerations for creating financial and career stability during transition.

Together they will share current financial and employment market insights, trends, and frameworks to equip you to create your repatriation plan. Designed as an interactive session, you will also have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in the discussion.

Sydney ‘Pop-up’ Event: with Margot Andersen.

With our more organised cocktail style events scheduled to return in the coming months,  we thought we would make the most of our COVID flexible conditions with a series of ‘pop up’ style evenings that are a bit more relaxed and casual in style.

We all know that returning ‘home’ isn’t quite as straightforward as it sounds, so as with all our events, this evening is designed to connect you with fellow global thinkers and adventurers who are local to you. It will also provide you with the opportunity to find out a little more about our community.

Simply come along and grab yourself a glass of your favourite tipple at the bar and enjoy an evening meeting some other friendly and like-minded repats.

Tickets are available here.

Virtual Morning Tea: with Margot Andersen.

Returning ‘home’ after living abroad is all about reconnection, however we all know that this can sound a whole lot easier than it actually is.

Designed to connect you with fellow global thinkers and repatriates, our ‘coffee chat’ will provide you with the opportunity to share networks and tips on how others are reconnecting to their local communities, navigating the employment market and overcoming those all-too-common repatriate challenges.  

Our online morning tea will be held on at 10am Thursday 15th April and will run for 45 minutes.

All you have to do is pop the kettle on, dial in and enjoy a moment meeting some other friendly and like-minded repats.

Tickets are available here.

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.
