As has become recent tradition, join us for the first Fruits and Blend of the new year, on Thursday 16 January, 6pm onwards, at Crown Metropol's exclusive lounge and sky bar, 28, offering panoramic views of Melbourne's ever-changing skyline.
GLOBE has taken two stands at the 2014 Carnival on Sunday 12 January. This year we are going to feature many of members’ business. So, drop by say ‘hello’ and learn more about your fellow Globers’ businesses. Bring your friends along and get them join up, so they too can find out what a fun bunch we are.
We will be marching in force in the 2014 Pride march. Come and march with us. We look forward to having you be part of our contingent.
‘Tis the season to be jolly – even at work. But that doesn’t mean you can let your hair down completely.
While the end of year festivities are a great opportunity to relax and celebrate another year past, it’s important to set boundaries and remember that even though it's after-business-hours and your boss is churning up the dance floor, the end of year party is still a work function.
In our first event, we welcomed Greens member Adam Bandt for a private dinner with GLOBE members. Discussions on the night focused on a number of topics including marriage equality, asylum seekers and the economy.
At the Penny Wong event, about 70 guests welcomed the Senator who was incredibly generous with her time, meeting all attendees individually as well as addressing the group and taking questions. She covered a broad range of topics from the educational reforms, asylum seekers and right through to sharing her experiences being a gay Asian politician. It was a most enlightening address.
At our final event, a number of our members as well as a strong contingent from our partners Lander and Rogers welcomed Liberal candidate for Melbourne Ports Kevin Ekendahl for a dinner at Gramercy Bistro. Topics for discussion included marriage equality, transport, asylum seekers, employment and education.
Again, we would like to thank our guests, members and all who attended our Meet Series events for their support.
