What the girls say about social with a twist....


I moved back to NZ after 18 years away and was put in touch with Gail. I’ve been to quite a few events she’s put together and have had a fantastic time at every one. Gail puts a huge amount of effort into making sure you meet people you will get along with and have something in common with. I’ve made a great group of girlfriends in Auckland after only a couple of months. I would highly recommend Gail to anyone wanting a great social life she’s awesome.

Hi Gail, Quency and I had so much fun! Met other girls and really enjoyed ourself. Lunch was delicious too! Thanks for organising this!

I am so happy I stumbled onto Social with a Twist. It is exactly what I needed just coming out of a relationship. I met the most amazing women. Gail is fabulous. She is an exceptional host. She will bend over backward to make the experience wonderful. From accommodating the food to making you feel comfortable when you are new and don't know anyone.

Whilst I have not had a chance to attend many of Gail’s events the ones I have been to have been great. Gail herself is warm, friendly and very welcoming. Her events reflected her personality, she puts a lot of thought into her events such the group size, where to seat people based on who may connect better with each other etc. I myself have made some connections at one of her cocktails events and we are now meeting outside of the event it.

It was wonderful as usual and a great bunch of ladies. Hotel was a gorgeous spot and staff were awesome at the high tea.

I was a little frightened at the prospect of my first Social with a Twist event, but it turned out to be a very pleasant evening, the lovely encounters, the great food and by the end full of good vibes. Thanks Gail for organising this. Looking foward to my next encounter with these wonderful ladies.
Thanks again:)

I joined Social with a Twist after moving back to Auckland after few years away. Many of my friends had other priorities, children and husbands so I joined up. I have made some great friends through the girlfriend’s club and social outings. It is a safe way to meet some fantastic new friends and experience some great new bars and restaurants around Auckland. Gail organises things really well and always keeps everyone in updated with events or any changes. I absolutely recommend Social with a Twist.

Social with a Twist is a fantastic concept and Gail is super organised and so lovely. This is such a great idea and so needed. What a great way to meet new people in a safe and open way. It has been so good for me, as I’ve just moved to Auckland and hardly know anybody, I’ve connected with some amazing women and it gets me out of the house and I’m going to new places.

Hello Gail, just wanted to say thank you for your professionalism at putting these wonderful women together at interesting, varied and well-chosen venues. You seem to have filled a vortex that many of us have slipped into (either being the third wheel, being New to town, or changes in friendships) and the chance to make new friends and acquaintances is brilliant. Thanks again!

Thank you Gail,  I had an absolutely fabulous time at Girls Night with a Twist.   It was a very relaxed, friendly event and I met some really fabulous ladies. I am so am looking forward to joining your other clubs and attending future fun events.

I came to New Zealand on my own and was recommended the ‘meet-up’ app, on that I found Social with a Twist. Gail has done everything in her power to bring girls together and to make us feel welcome. I’ve been to some really nice places and met some people I now consider friends. I completely recommend Social with a Twist to anyone who wants to meet fun girls all looking for the same thing.

I went to my first Social with a Twist event at the Stamford Plaza and if was great! Gail puts a lot of effort and time organizing these social get togethers for like minded women. Initially I was a little apprehensive but once I arrived and  met the ladies it was all laughs and fun. I found I had so much in common with the ladies I was seated with and furthermore, with the ladies at the table. I really enjoyed the occasion and will definitely be coming to future events. Thank you Gail for creating and organizing these group get togethers. I can honestly say I had a blast and should have joined ages ago.
Warm Regards Frances 

Hi Gail, wonderful afternoon. Super nice ladies at high tea. Thanks for arranging it all. It’s very much appreciated.
Cheers Shelley

Gail is an extraordinary event planner. The Social with a Twist events are always enjoyable, well organised and entertaining. Not only are they well thought out, but she brings together a great group of women that all seem to fit well with your own personality and makes it easier to engage. The prices for each event are also reasonable and reflect the expectation that follows with the event itself. Highly recommend joining as you can see for yourself why they've been a success for all involved, particularly for me. Thanks again, Gail!

For those new in town (like me!) or those just enjoy finding like-minded people, Social with a Twist is an organic way get to know people. Nothing fancy or awkward, just ladies who want to have fun and feel welcomed. Thank you Gail for organising, looking forward to join more of your events!

My first time with Social with a Twist was a huge success. Not only was it a lovely high tea event which Gail had organised so well; she’s also very welcoming and aware of “new ones”, and happy to answer all of your questions. The afternoon was inclusive and relaxed, and I’ll definitely do it again plus meet up with the ladies I met there.

I had a blast yesterday. Met lovely girls. Awesome event Gail

Kabuki Dinner was fun night out with friend people and trying a new place!

Social with a Twist is an excellent way to meet interesting and like-minded people, and above all have a smashing time.  Gail is a wonderful host who takes care to introduce participants, and makes sure everyone is included and at ease.  The events are well organised, they begin timely and the venues chosen with discerning taste..  Highly recommended.

Heya, it was a really well organised lovely evening. I can’t wait to be a part of the next one.. Thanks for organising this:)

Hi Gail, thanks for dinner event tonight. The girls are very lovely. I enjoyed chatting wtih them. And, the food was nice as well. I’ll definitely come to the next one:)

I wholeheartedly recommend Social with a Twist for meeting other likeminded women keen to increase their friendship circle. Occasions are ‘very’ well organised in comfortably sized groups for even the shyest to attend and you don’t get lost in a number. It was easy to engage with other women in such a welcoming, non intimidating and supportive way and those I’ve met have all been lovely and very interesting to get to know. I applaud Gail in her initiative in organising.

It was fab thanks so much for all  the trouble you go thru to make our get togethers so enjoyable.  The food was yummy.  Cheers see you next time.  

Hi Gail, thank you so much once again for organizing tonight's dinner, I had a lovely time tonight & really enjoyed meeting the ladies and yourself.  I look forward to another meet up.

Hi Gail just wanted to let you know we had a great time on Saturday night at Cocktails with a Twist & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thanks so much for organising it.

Hi Gail!, It was a great pleasure to meet you and the girls. I will definitely come next time!

Fantastic high tea had, with some surprise bubbles. It was a work out carrying my full tummy home afterwards tho! :-) Had a real fun time, lovely meeting you all. Sorry I had to jet off early, but hopefully see you at another of Gail's great events soon!

If you're a little introverted and hate the idea of small talk, give one of Gail's events a go. They're wonderfully organised and impeccably curated, and it's so nice to turn up and be greeted with a smile from Gail. A great way to meet new and interesting women

I joined Social with a Twist about a year ago. It's one of the more fun & interesting groups I belong to. Gail has an excellent way with everyone & keeps coming up with great things to do & lovely ways to meet woman of all ages & broaden your social network. It's not at all clicky and Gail makes sure all newbies are well looked after. Although I can't make too many because of work commitments I always enjoy them when I go. Catching up with women I have met before & meeting some new ones. Makes life fun :)

Thank you, Gail, for the great event! I had 4 fabulous weeks, with good food in cool locations and was very nice to socialise with the girls!!!

I moved to New Zealand from the UK and so didn't know many people here. Social with a twist provided a great way to meet ladies who were also looking to widen their social circle. Gails events were very relaxed and informal and I have made some lasting friendships with the girls she has matched me up with. 
Wendy (Auckland)

I had been married for quite a few years and had really lost sight of who I was, and to be brutally honest I didn’t really have many friends.  Gail helped me by creating opportunities to socialise again and now I am back to my best with a wonderful circle of friends
