Have you heard about our Thursday Social? It’s a recurring social gathering free to join for tech and language professionals in Vancouver. We meet every 6 weeks to have a beer, meet new people, and chat, while leaving the busy workday behind us. On April 28th, we kicked off this event in downtown Vancouver at our first Globalme Thursday Social, and judging by how much fun we had, the event is definitely a keeper. Participants really enjoyed meeting other professionals and extending their networks, by just having a drink and a bite to eat after a hard day’s work.
“It’s incredible how fast you get to know new people and learn about what they do when you take the time to actually talk to each other outside of the office space. We want to provide an environment where people can leave the busy day behind them, have a beer and casually interact with other people who are working in the fascinating and fast-moving Vancouver tech and language industry. It’s something a lot of people are looking for, but can be hard to find in a big and constantly changing city like this one. We started out with the intention of providing a safe and fun environment for people to meet and have a beer, but eventually we’d like to expand to host interesting talks from Vancouver’s finest techies. For now, we’re just looking forward to our next event on June 16th. We hope even more people will attend, have a great time, and help us grow this into something really powerful” – Erik de Vries, Marketing Manager at Globalme.
