"When an unexpected event or companion breaks through the fired surface of our creme brulee of ceremony and lets something else in. That’s when things get interesting."

"Traditional networking is so inauthentic and transactional. Wok+Wine is exactly the opposite. You're having interesting and surprising conversations and making new connections without even realising it"

Moir Laird, Melbourne

"Wok+Wine is like a 2 hour digital vacation. With hands covered in shrimp juice of course you're not going to be reaching for your phone"

Jason Wisdom, New York


A unique social experience, tried and tested in 11 countries so far

What it is?

Wok+Wine is a 3 hour gathering of 40+ people peeling and eating the most delicious jumbo prawns from a long communal table covered with newspaper and banana leaves, paired with sensational wine.

The food and wine are amazing but the real magic is the diversity and depth of surprising conversation.

Wok+Wine is the antidote to filter bubbles and predictive algorithms. We will surprise you.

Wok+Wine connects you to the people you didn't know you were looking for.

Why we created it?

Our most valuable opportunities can come from connections to unlikely people. Wok+Wine creates an environment where such opportunities are discovered.

We wondered what would happen if we gathered people based on their mindset rather than their skill-set. That is, rather than all being designers or accountants or chemists, what if open-minded designers and accountants and chemists could meet in one place?


Wok+Wine has helped thousands of individuals - as well as companies like Accenture, ABN AMRO and AirBnB - to get better connected.

Wok+Wine is particularly effective in the following business situations.

Strengthening client relationships

This Wok+Wine experience was purposefully designed to strengthen the relationship between partners and staff of a the global law firm and one of their most important national accounts.

Contact us to discuss your situation.

Connecting dispersed teams

Most of the consultants working at this firm were situated on-site in clients' offices. As a result, they had little opportunity to connect face to face. There was limited sense of community and best practices were not easily shared. This Wok+Wine experience successfully tackled both of these challenges.

Discovering new client opportunities

Many service businesses have a diverse network of interesting and successful clients. Rather than keeping them isolated and meeting them one-on-one, this Wok+Wine experience proved the value of bringing clients together at one time, to connect and discover new business opportunities.

Conference / event kickoff

Wok+Wine is significantly more effective at connecting conference delegates (or other event participants) than any cocktail evening. Your delegates will make many more connections in a much more authentic way and those connections will continue to build throughout your conference.

Connecting online communities offline

While digital platforms are effective for building community numbers, when it comes to real community engagement, the online experience alone cannot fulfil our social needs. Eventually your members will want to meet each other face-to-face. Wok+Wine provides a simple and effective way for you to connect your community offline.

Connecting teams across departments or other siloes

Most organisations are looking for more effective ways to connect members of different teams or departments to find better solutions for increasingly complex problems, and to find new opportunities for growth. Wok+Wine is particularly effective at creating a level playing field for such engagement.
