Meet ups 2023

I haven’t been on here for a few years and was thinking earlier about how much I used to enjoy the Monzo community meet-ups!

Does anyone know if they still happen? If so where do you find out about them nowadays?

Nope. I believe they stopped a long time ago.

Yep they used to host them in the offices were great fun!

Yeah there were things like open offices and the odd events where they gave updates. Mostly London, then I think there was one time they did a few further ‘up north’ as high as Manchester?

These days people would be jumping at each other’s throats judging by some of the exchanges :sweat_smile:

I vaguely remember a city tour too!?

Has this community changed then? Used to be really helpful and had plenty of advice floating around

Yeah I believe there was!

I seem to recall some Plus exclusive or investor exclusive events that they promoted as a perk. Then people (myself included :speak_no_evil: ) complained that they were always at the London HQ.

It still is, I’m being a little tongue in cheek. But there are definitely some… friendly disagreements at times?

Yeah, I remember them being in London mainly! I wonder if they would bring the events back

That’s fine, boxing gloves in the corner :rofl::sweat_smile:

I think it’s less that they stopped and more that the pandemic came…

And I think that lots of the folk who used to organise then have gone now.

But what say you @AlanDoe, @cookywook ?

(I hear the new office has an events space - presumably underused?!)

I think a roadshow would be cool. It’s all great having in office events in LDN and all but what about the rest of the uk :slight_smile:

Be great to see the Monzo bus doing some kind of road trip…

I went to a couple of them back in the day, including meetings for the change in name and to go to pick up the debit card for the current account beta. Was always fun!

Didn’t they give out hot chip stickers and T-shirts? I saw lots with them!

Yes! I still have mine. It was a fun day. There was even a staff member dressed as Hot Chip

@DaveJ will certainly be murdered first if they somehow avoid banishment.

I remember the Monzo Debate on “Is cash dead” in their London HQ back in 2019- great expert speakers and an interesting topic- Monzo even had free curry and beers for everyone who attended! It was a really good evening :smiley:
