Our journey started in April 2017 and we are  a Anglo/ Turkish personal development event platform aiming and linking English and Turkish communities.

REFRESH YRSLF, meaning we believe that we can refresh each other by sharing, learning, networking and getting inspired from each other.

We run REFRESH YRSLF events which are called ONE,  INTRO, WORKSHOP and XXL.

ONE; a 1 hour free event aiming to give participants an idea about the upcoming program. These events are limited with a number of participants.

INTRO; the event is  generally 2 hours long and it is a valuable opportunity to get to know the keynote speaker as well as his/her field. Whereby a WORKSHOP is an interactive training,  minimum of 4 hours or longer practice.

XXL; at XXL events experienced, authentic and well known people will share their stories and shows with a larger audience.


We do have various topics, such as  WELLBEING,  FAMILY,  WOMEN, CAREER,  LIFE STYLE and EXPERIENCE.

Wisely chosen keynote speakers are enriching our gatherings by introducing their specific, unique and interesting up-to-date topics. Within our calendar we are aiming to run 1 English and 1 Turkish event per month.


We see us something between a profit business and a charity. By contributing to REFRESH YRSLF participants automatically get a part of a social responsibility cause.  Refresh Yrslf tickets are reinvested for the purpose of  business sustainability as well as fundraising for Turkish and English charities.

We definitely believe in the universal law of “giving & receiving” and  thankfully keynote speakers participate on a volunteer basis. Charities we supported in the past were;, GÜNEŞ UMUTTUR ( a Turkish initiative started by Billur Güven, supporting village pupils in Anatolia and OFF THE RECORD TWICKENHAM as well as various other international initiatives.

  Size kendi göçmenlik hikayemin nasıl başladığını anlatayım: İngiltere’ye taşınmamızın sanırım 4. Ayıydı. O güne kadar son derece mutlu, uyumlu ve hevesliydim.
