June flew by so fast for us. As the saying goes, time flies by when you’re having fun! For those of you wondering, here’s what we were up to:
Upcoming mixer fireside chat with Elizabeth Gascoigne (July 27)
On Thursday, July 27, we’re hosting the one and only Elizabeth Gascoigne for a mixer and fireside chat. Elizabeth is leading the non-alcoholic movement in NYC and across several major cities in the US. Her company, Absence of Proof is elevating the non-alcoholic nightlife and providing inclusive options.
Join us for an exciting evening as Elizabeth shares her journey along with tips for building highly engaged communities in New York, Detroit, Los Angeles, DC, Chicago, among others.
Recently, she was featured as one of Adweek's Creative 100 for 2023! She's also been written about in the Financial Times, ABC News, Fortune, US Magazine, among others. And it doesn't stop there, she just recently announced a partnership with the New York Mets!
Elizabeth will be sharing her insights and lessons on how she built a highly engaged community and brand across 7 cities in less than a year.
Recap fireside chat with Andrew Yeung
Andrew is the mastermind behind some of NYC's most epic tech parties, and he's built a following of almost 40,000 people across Twitter and Linkedin in the process.
Two years ago, Andrew arrived in the Big Apple without knowing a soul, in the midst of a global pandemic. But he refused to let isolation hold him back. Instead, he turned to hosting dinners to bring strangers together, and what started as small gatherings quickly evolved into massive events with over 2,000 attendees!
The event was packed and there was lots of excitement in the room. Here are some of the pictures, the energy was electric!
