Soundboard Events are a little different...
Here’s our thing: we want you to feel inspired, to bounce ideas, and meet like-minded people. How do we do that? Through Soundboarding!
During our quarterly event series, we bring in the organisers, founders, creatives, business owners and other trailblazers who we think are doing something brilliant in the world to hear their story. We host Curated Matches where we hand pick 2 fellow event attendees for you to match with for a 10 minute speed soundboarding session based on your common interests. Prior to the event each attendee fills in a form answering questions like “What are you passionate about” and “what would you do if money wasn’t an issue”, based on this information, we make the match.
Building connections with likeminded people is the heart of Soundboard, how else can we learn, inspire, and motivate each other? We can't wait to meet you!
What we'll cover...
Kevin Twomey and PJ Kirby recorded the first episode of I’m Grand Mam from their kitchen table 2 years ago. Since then, they have released over 60 episodes of I’m Grand Mam, have over 50,000 weekly listeners from around the globe, have done a sold-out tour of their live show Pure Brazen in London, Cork and Dublin, have over 1000 subscribers on Patreon and are Ireland’s leading LGBTQ+ podcast.
During this session PJ and Kevin will share their experience of creating a podcast from scratch, finding their flow, the highs and lows along the way, and what they look for when it comes to finding Soundboards and community to allow them to continue to grow.
You should attend this event if...
You're curious about podcasting and hearing what it takes to bring an idea to life
You are interested in expanding your network internationally with like-minded creatives, founders, organisers and other trailblazers
You are curious, open to learning something new, and eager to hear new perspectives.
Anyone can join these events, you don't need to have any prior experience in any particular field, you just need to be curious and open to learning something new.
How it works:
At the point of sign up, you will be asked to share some details about yourself. The information is used to match you with a Soundboard.
Ahead of the event, you will receive an overview of who your Soundboard matches are so you’re not going in blind to the matches.
There will be no awkward conversations because we give you a topic to discuss with your match so no last-minute scrambling for what to say.
You make genuine connections and meet people you already have something in common with - we handpick a match for you based on pre-shared criteria which means you can skip the small talk and get right to the good stuff.
Don't let the fear of meeting someone new scare you off, guaranteed inspiration or your money back!
