We are an international social enterprise and named our gatherings REFRESH YRSLF, meaning we believe that we can refresh each other by sharing, learning, networking and getting inspired from each other. By contributing to REFRESH YRSLF as a keynote speaker or ticket buying participant you automatically get a part of a fundraising project. We want to come together with like-minded, so we can exchange experience, knowledge and create an opportunity to fundraise for social responsibility projects.


We do have various topics, such as REFRESH YRSLF (personal development & well being), REFRESH FAMILY (kids, relations and overall family), REFRESH WOMEN (we are so proud to be women, let’s celebrate together) REFRESH LIFE STYLE (embracing the joy of life, interesting hobbies and interests) REFRESH XXL (learning & sharing by mutual experience and practice).

Within the structure of these gathering we also will be having networking sessions, at which all participants will get the chance to introduce themselves, their business & services so feel free to bring your business cards, leaflets and brochures. Don’t worry if you are not professionaly occupied, everyone is very much welcome at our social platform as for us the importance is to benefit from sharing & learning from each other. Wisely chosen keynote speakers will be enriching our gatherings by introducing their specific, unique and interesting up-to-date topics.

Our REFRESH YRSLF fees will vary between 10 – 25 GBP. This fees are only used for fundraising and covering various basic expenses. We definitely believe in the universal law of “giving & receiving”, as gatherings / events serve for fundraising purposes for  various charities like MIND ( and GÜNEŞ UMUTTUR ( a Turkish initiative started by Billur Güven, supporting village pupils in Anatolia

Thankfully, keynote speakers participate on a volunteer basis.

REFRESH YRSLF; consists of 6 extravert Turkish women with various professional backgrounds such as design, acting, art, coaching and personal development.  We enrich each other with trust, compassion, love, balance and support and are very exited about meeting new refreshing friends. Our refreshing journey started in April 2017 in London, UK.

Future REFRESH YRSLF gatherings are  announced via social media, like, as well as on our facebook page Refresh@refreshyrslf
