  • Melbourne PM is active and happy. It went very very quiet after Skud left and then we (pjf, me and Scott) decided to bring some life back into it.

    My suggestions on bringing Sydney PM back to life are:

    • Start off with a social gathering for the first meeting - like going to a movie or cafe
    • Find somewhere to host the meeting that you can rely on for a while (contact me for a suggestion)
    • Update the website
    • Enthuse on the list for the whole month between the social gathering and the first official meeting about the first official meeting
    • Make sure you get promises from at least 5 people that they'll be at that meeting
    • Come up with a barrage of your own talks and try to get those 5 people to have some as well.
    • Run meeting with a bunch of talks (about 90 minutes worth) and then go to a restaurant/pub somewhere quietish for dinner afterwards.
    • Invite Damian to visit for a talk (for a later meeting). You could be lucky.
    • Soldier on. You and whoever you restart this with will probably do more talks than everyone else. Try to secure talks for next month before the end of the current month's meeting.
    Well it worked for Melbourne PM, it could work for you.
