Cheers & Chill

Cheers & Chill is an informal and enjoyable opportunity for Aussie expats to connect with each other in an international city. Hosted in a central location over drinks, the laid back nature of these events offers a unique opportunity for the Advance network to forge new connections, strengthen old ones and of course, chew the fat with some mates. 

Living in a city where you'd love to see a Cheers & Chill happen? (What's not to love about getting together with a bunch of fellow Aussies for some after-work beers?) We'd love to hear from you! Email members@advance.org to learn some more. 

2017


Cheers & Chill: Brisbane
Date:
Wednesday 4 October 2017
Venue: 
The Catchment Brewing Co
Returning home is often a big life decision - spearheaded by professional and career opportunities, and personal reasons, such as Australia's amazing lifestyle, ageing parents or choosing to raise a family in Australia. Returning home to Australia can be just as hard as leaving – reacclimating to a culture or business environment which is no longer as familiar as it used to be, or just connecting with new friends who have been through similar experiences. At our first Brisbane Cheers & Chill for 2017 we invited members who have lived overseas and have since returned to Australia to come and share their story and connect with fellow returnees. Those aspiring to make the move and generally curious were also welcome!

Cheers & Chill: San Francisco
Date: Thursday 6 April 2017
Venue: WeWork Embarcadero Center
We brought the Advance community together to meet the elevate61 participants. elevate61 is a rapid growth entrepreneurial program for Australian tech-enabled enterprise start-ups and included in this program is a 10-day trip to the US, where the participants increase their understanding of US target markets. The event was opened by Ms Frances van Ruth, Australian Trade and Investment Commissioner, San Francisco.

Cheers & Chill: New York
Date: Tuesday 4 April 2017
Venue: Banter
An uncharacteristically cold April New York day didn't stop the Aussie community from congregating at the newest hotspot in Greenwich Village (opened by two Aussie boys, no less) for drinks, nibbles, and of course - good banter.   

Cheers & Chill: London
Date:
January 12 2017
Venue: The Dive Bar at Ape & Bird
Advance is committed to enhancing opportunities for international Australians everywhere around the world, so it was a pleasure to partner with Precision Global Consulting Group to host a London-based Cheers and Chill to answer questions for Australians wanting to explore opportunities to work in the USA on an E-3 visa. Even the snow showed up! 

2016


Cheers & Chill: Sydney

Date: Tuesday 11 October 2016
Venue: The Gazebo
With the Advance Global Australian Awards and Summit just weeks away, we thought there was no better time to bring the entire Advance community in Sydney together, for an evening of good company, good chat and good times.

Cheers & Chill: London
Date: Wednesday 3 August 2016
Venue: The Anthologist
We joined forces with the Westpac Team in London, whose specialty involves managing financial needs of Australians abroad; they have many supportive resources that are pivotal in helping Australians expatriates achieve their future goals. It was a fantastic evening of galvanizing the entire Advance community in London, enjoying good food, banter and beverages - three things Australians do well. 

Cheers & Chill: Brisbane

Date: Tuesday 17 May 2016

The New York-based Advance community came together to meet the 2016 elevate61 participants at favourite Aussie cafe Bluestone Lane. Mini avocado toasts and espresso martinis, anyone?

To coincide with the arrival of 2016 elevate61 partcipants, we brought together LA's finest expats and innovators for an evening of good company, good chat and good times, over complimentary appetisers and drinks at The Craftsman Bar & Kitchen in Santa Monica.

Cheers & Chill: New York
Date: Tuesday 9 February 2016
Venue: The Liberty NYC
We kicked off the very first of our Cheers & Chill networking series on a snowy night in New York at midtown-based bar The Liberty NYC, and the Australian energy in the room was palpable. A few hours spent warming up with New York's finest antipodes over wine, nibbles, and a raffle for a bottle of Moet and plate of oysters... what more could you want?
