Meet the team

Over the past few years, we’ve grown from an idea into a Mindful Drinking Movement™ with tens of thousands of members, supported by a small and busy staff team. We’re all mindful drinkers – some of us moderate and some of us don’t drink alcohol at all – and we all share a passion to create a world where nobody feels out of place if they’re not drinking.

Club Soda is a social business, so we’re committed to putting the needs and aspirations of our members first. We’re inspired by behaviour change science and our own experiences of changing our drinking. And we’re always looking for new ways to make it easier for you to change your drinking, whether you want to cut down, stop for a bit or quit.
