About

Shaun Wallis

Welcome

On behalf of the members, I would like to welcome you to the Good Blokes Society. Founded in 2014, the GBS has been built around the mutual enjoyment of sport, business and a good old-fashioned Friday lunch.

Known to most members as the GBS, the Good Blokes Society provides a range of safe and secure platforms for men to create and develop their social and business relationships.

Our growing community consists of great blokes who share a common approach to life both personally and professionally. We host a range of events to provide members with opportunities to enjoy the company of like-minded good blokes. We encourage regular communication between members and take pride in the supportive culture the GBS has created.

The core of the GBS is to allow men to get together in an entertaining environment to enjoy themselves whilst building meaningful relationships. It is important that we provide a platform for men to have real conversations and to celebrate being a “good bloke”.

We encourage members to introduce guests to our events as we look forward to growing our membership. If you are interested in joining or attending one of our events please reach out as we look forward to welcoming you to the Good Blokes Society

Warm regards,

Shaun Wallis
Founder

A Word From Our Founders

When we initially created the Good Blokes Society in 2014 it was simply a group of guys getting together for a wonderful Friday lunch where there was plenty of social activity, lots of laughs and some great connections made.

Today the Good Blokes Society has rapidly grown to the point where we are now represented in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane with a view to continue expanding nationally.

The very best part of the Good Blokes Society has not been the growth in numbers but the genuine growth in the group becoming much more than just a “Friday Lunch”, whilst we all still enjoy that component of GBS, the real outcome has been the establishment of genuine business connections and friendships.

Whilst networking and friendship is a great benefit to all within the GBS, our culture has provided a platform for our members to share many things that they often feel uncomfortable about, the genuine care shown for each other creates an environment that promotes the ability for all members to discuss anything that may be affecting their life, either personally or professionally.

We are very proud that the Good Blokes Society has evolved into something so worthwhile, come and join us to share the GBS experience.

The importance of a good old-fashioned long lunch.

The gathering of Good Blokes in a comfortable environment where stories are told and shared, banter is rife and the seeds of many opportunities are created. There is always the enjoyment of a great steak together with a tale or two told whilst enjoying an ice-cold beer or a nice glass of wine.

The connection that develops in this environment often creates a mutually beneficial business transaction or encourages a social event such as golf, a day at the footy or the races but even more importantly it provides a forum for blokes to share their problems, issues in their life and openly discuss their mental well-being. It is well known that men are often reluctant to discuss the various issues that affect them but the culture of caring and sharing within the GBS creates a comfortable environment where men can openly talk about anything and when it’s needed the members will always rally to support in any way.

The Good Old Fashioned Long Lunch is a great way to connect and contribute in many ways, come and join us to be inspired by great business and relationship outcomes.
