Meetup | Skills of the Modern Age

Future of work.


Each month we host a community lunch/masterclass mash-up featuring leading local experts exploring a future skill, technology or trend.

Our last event

Branding for generationwhy.

18th July • Flux Basement

Purpose is the new black in business, but it’s already being dangerously misunderstood by company owners the world over. It’s not about brand image, it’s about truth.

Join Skills of the Modern Age as we host local branding and marketing gurus, Mike Edmonds, founder and Chairman of one of Perth's leading creative agencies, Meerkats Creative Business Solutions, and Meg Coffey from SMPerth and Coffey and Tea.

Learning witha twist.

The chance
to learn.

There's nothing better than learning over lunch. Each month we explore a different future skill, emerging technology or a current trend. Our experts make it super interesting by sharing their wisdom through case studies and real-life stories.

An opportunity
to network.

Over 600 people have joined SOMA for lunch to learn, network and upskill. From industry to academia, our community lunches attract professionals from a variety of industries. There's always someone new to meet or an interesting connection to be made.

... and have
a bit of fun.

Our community lunches are never boring, and there is always a little twist! We believe learning happpens best when you're out of your comfort zone. Our lunches are not your standard seminar experience!
