Q: What’s an event like?
A: You’ll fill out a name tag, get a colorful token and be given “small talk” cards for the 10 minute mingle. I’ll set the ground rules for the event and then you’ll take a seat at the table designated by your colorful token. We’ll rotate tables 2-3 times per event, which means you’ll have 1.5 hours of meaningful conversations!
Q: Is this a dating / networking event?
A: No—dating events are too much pressure & networking events are too boring!
Q: How are meaningful conversations facilitated?
A: I designed & manufactured a box of 365 Connection Cards that spark meaningful conversations about topics we normally don’t get space to discuss like family dynamics, privilege, failure, self-love, happiness, body-image, and lots more. Check out the box of cards here or on Instagram!
Q: Who comes to these events?
A: Everyone’s invited 🎉and typically people who are genuinely interested in connecting with others & opening up show up! Generally people live or work in Seattle, WA area—new or local.
Q: Why do you charge for events?
A: Events cost $20 to cover the expenses of creating a curated experience for people to connect, which is priceless! If cost is a barrier to you attending then please email me and we’ll figure out a way for you to attend!
Q: Who are you?
A: I’m Audrey Phillips 👋! I grew up in Woodinville, WA and went to Bowdoin College in ME where I played soccer and studied Geology/Education! I worked as a ski instructor in UT and then moved to CO to be a wilderness therapy guide for about 2 years ⛰️. I love backpacking, long distance running, drinking beer/coffee or drawing—and live in the Cap Hill area. Read the full story here
Q: Why do you host these events?
A: I host these events because there’s so much small talk and hardly any spaces where people can open up, be real and connect with others. Plus, it’s hard to meet people these days without swiping on apps, joining a book club or picking up a hobby—so, these events are a great way to meet people in a low-stakes, low-pressure way!
Q: My question isn’t on this list…
