    Any ideas on substitutes for: 'apres avoir'?
    Depends on context, really. Some suggestions:

    ayant + past participle
    eg: Après avoir mangé, nous sommes sortis. Ayant mangé, nous sommes sortis.

    Quand + conjugated verb. This might require a pluperfect in some cases, or a future or a future perfect, depending on context.
    eg: Quand nous avions finis, nous sommes sortis.
    Nous sortirons quand nous aurons fini.
