European Elpha Members, where are you at?

Hellooo!! I've noticed there are many Elpha women based in the northern American countries - curious if there are any Europeans here who want to connect?

And ideally, women who are deep divers, into self-dev work, travel, wellness and entrepreneurship!

I'd love to connect and chat via a virtual zoom room if you are up for it? 1:1 or group....

Kinda like lunchclub (here is my invite link)! A great place to meet new, interesting people from around the world :)

EDIT 1: The first meetup has been, if you would like to join the next ones please PM me as I won't check the thread down below...

EDIT 2: hehe I forgot to mention where I am! Amanda, nomadic since I was 6 and now settled in southern Spain close to Gibraltar, Dutch/Indo with an Aussie passport, first-time mom to 9 mth Maia, I love connecting people and creating a nurturing space where we all feel heard & seen :)

Iโ€™m in Meath, Ireland. Sounds like a great idea. Thanks
Hi @aileen in Ireland! So lovely to see such a lovely response from everyone everywhere in Europe :) I'll create a doodle for dates and send it to you as a private message :)
I'm in Dublin in Ireland, nice to see someone else here. :) I'm originally from Wisconsin in the US, been here for 3.5 years now.
I'm in Budva, Montenegro. I will love to chat. Thanks!
I was just in Budva last week - gorgeous! Hello from Vienna!
...and I was in Vienna last month!
ohh beautiful montenegro! hi carmen @cgbl :) I'll create a doodle for dates and send it to you as a private message :)
Hey Carmen! Weโ€™re neighbors. Iโ€™m living in Albania right now. Letโ€™s definitely connect! I go north often
You are in really good company! @Isabel945 is in Paris together with @mariefauchille @Zeni and @janetjonesduffey @princesshernando and @CrisMonclus are in Spain @laurachachulski and @mara3456 are in Germany@dariakami @YvonneZhang1 @NickyS are in the UK@federicapasini and @elizabethaaregbesola are in Italy@ying110 is in Turkey temp for a work project@luzajickova is in Czechia I think that's a good start!
Thank you @iynna! You know your community :)) Have you guys ever done live group calls?
Hehe I think I do :-) We actually host live calls every month! I was actually going to suggest you join that to meet the community.Lately, we have also been experimenting with having a member co-leading the call on a topic that's been submitted and "voted" by the community (see this https://elpha.com/posts/r7jd7g5j/june-elpha-members-chat-what-topics-do-you-want-us-to-discuss) so if this is something of interest to you, would love to get your ideas for July and any other future months (June is set and I'll be releasing info about it shortly :)) I actually meant to ask you to better understand (for feedback and market research purposes) why Lunchclub vs other platforms incl Elpha?
Oh really! I had no idea! I would love to learn more about those calls. Let me know how to get that ball rolling. As for lunchclub vs other platforms - the ease of setting your availability, then AI matches you with someone interesting and the meeting is scheduled in your calendar. Purely cos of convenience AND actually, you know that these people have signed up wanting to connect on video. On other community platforms perhaps its more about connecting via writing and forums and it's harder to connect with the ones that are into a live call (which is great that you offer that!) Hope that clarifies :)
I'm half French (half Jordanian) but live in Dubai!
Bonjour @ceciliamzayek! How is it living in dubai? I'll create a doodle for dates and send it to you as a private message :)
Hi Amanda, great idea. I am based in the UK. Would love to connect.
hi @Catherin3 yay! whereabouts in the UK? I'll create a doodle for dates and send it to you as a private message :)
Hi Amanda,I am Ukrainian, living and working in Milano now. Would be happy to connect! I also noticed that most of the topics here discussed more in the context of Americas, same with companies data. Would be great if that expands to Europe too, because obviously some practices are completely different (salaries, social, etc)Lunchclub is a great platform too, but looks to me that comes in waves :)
@katerinc ciao! Yes, completely agree and would be interesting to see if Elpha expands the companies to Europe. I'll create a doodle for dates and send it to you as a private message :)
I'm in for a group chat as well - I'm in Vienna, Austria. Great idea :)
@KellyK oh vienna! one of the cities I have yet to visit. I'll create a doodle and send it to you as a private message :)
What a wonderful idea! Would love to connect with you @amandamulder and fellow European Elpha Members. With Love from Lisbon, Lx
I am also in Lisbon and love this idea! Count me in.
Ohh yay! this is great @AgneMiluk! I lived in Lisboa and had the best community there. Lovely to meet here :)

Thanks for a great conversation this morning! As I mentioned during the call, Iโ€™m writing a book about how women succeed in tech worldwide. Iโ€™d be immensely grateful if you could complete and share with your network of women in tech this short survey about their experiences at work https://forms.gle/BEQL4H8ETsVqbZ6h7 Whilst the survey is anonymous, you'll have the option to get involved in the project before submitting the form.
I had to miss this time, but please add me to a mailing list if you have one! Would love to join for future calls! @amandamulder
