How will the Community Social Event work?

We're using Remo Virtual Conferencing which allows you to:

-Talk to a small group at your table
-Move around to network with others
-Control your level of interaction

All participation is optional: Some may choose to just sit back and listen. That's completely fine. There is no requirement to speak or even to turn on your camera.


Ticket Options:


Instantly secure your spot with a standard ticket. A low-cost entry fee allows us to come together as a community and cover the cost of running this event. You'll also have access to the Q&A Discussion recording for 2 weeks.


We want this event to be as accessible as possible but not everyone can afford to pay a ticket price, no matter how low.

A 'Pay It Forward' ticket means that you are buying a free ticket for someone you've never met, and probably never will.

It's a good will gesture to give back, or in this case 'pay forward', for random acts of kindness and generosity you may have received in the past. If you can easily afford this contribution, please consider sponsoring someone who can't.


The standard ticket price for this event is $20 AUD (see above).
48hrs prior to the event, unsold tickets will be made available for free on a first-come-first-serve basis.

NOTE: To maximise your chance of getting a free ticket, check your email and be sure to register as soon as they're made available.

Free tickets are limited and there's no guarantee everyone will get one.
If you'd like to secure your spot please purchase a standard ticket below.
