Social Dating Experiment is getting all grown up, and becoming more refined.


Speed-dating for Professionals at a brand new event venue. A chic and intimate vibe, Casual Monday's, Balmain is a cafe setting that will be closed down for the night and all ours for a facilitated night of great conversation and connection.

This event is for:

-Singles who are satisfied with their single status, and open to finding an available person who reminds them that quality romantic relationships can add LOTS of value

- 26-40 year olds (mainly because there are singles who are super mature at 26 year old, and others who are very fun loving at 40). #smashingstereotypes

- Professional working men and women, who generally are too busy to date, because they have been so focused on getting their life together, and investing in their friendships, careers, health and future.

What you can expect:

-Light nibbles and snacks throughout the evening, to keep your hands busy.

-The most refined guided connection activities from previous Social Dating Experiments, that have been an absolute hit, and guaranteed to create an evening of deep and interesting conversations.

-A curated and conscious atmosphere of comfort & curiosity

-Alcohol free event.


Early bird ticket: $45.00 (General Admission + Snacks)

EmPowered Couples Brunch

I'm not married as yet, but a wise man once told me that marriage is not comprised of Valentine's Days, nor the fireworks at Vivid Festival, nor the twenty-four long stem roses delivered to your desk, nor the magical helicopter ride over Barossa Valley.

Marriage is made up of the 250 boring Wednesdays, punctuated by dishes to clean in the kitchen sink, food shops at ALDI, and planning the budget before the baby comes [not an exhaustive list by any means].

So how do you fuel the romance and keep the fire going after years of being together? EmPowered Couples Brunch on 1 July - for some strange reason I get the privilege of speaking on this topic! And believe me - I'm hugely honoured and will do my best to prevent a cautionary tale.
