Inspired by the famed Renaissance city-state, Work Club creates the friction for inspiration and exploration through Florence Guild, the buzzing hive for interaction, collaboration and creation. Florence Guild embodies the uncertain, exciting spirit of our time. It’s serious play.

Available on its own or through any Work Club membership, Florence Guild is a series of weekly events that includes: monthly hero speakers, facilitated networking events, acoustic sets, wine tastings, giant games nights and cocktail affairs.

Curating the best talent from Australia and across the world with partners including TEDxSydney, TEDxMelbourne and The School of Life, events are designed with a specific goal in mind: to ignite conversation, a new passion or stimulate innovation. Belong and connect with a group of like-minded individuals, encouraging inspiring encounters with individuals from a diverse range of industries.

Membership is limited and by application only to ensure diversity.


Front and centre is a series of monthly speaker events themed according to the issues of our time, and are held alongside weekly facilitated networking events, acoustic sets, wine tastings, giant game nights and cocktail affairs.

Past speakers include Rachel Botsman (global thought leader on the collaborative economy), Joost Bakker (sustainability warrior), Jason Ball (LGBTI advocate), Louise Herron (CEO, Sydney Opera House), Lisa Messenger (Founder, Collective Hub), and Tim Soutphommasane (Australia’s Race Discrimination Commissioner).
