What happens when you quit your job to follow your dreams?
We've all thought about it. Throwing in the towel. Giving your boss the finger. Quitting to start a business; become a globe-trotter; work for a non-profit, or just laze on a beach.
But is it possible? Or just a pipe-dream?
Come and hear from SIX ex-employees who took the plunge. What are they doing now? How did it work out? Can you do it too — and if so, how?? What about your mortgage? Family? Relationships? Career??
Hear from these heroes that have made brave and fulfilling career changes, and learn how you could follow them:
Flick escaped from PR to starting a Play Consultancy, specialising in Lego therapy!
Adela escaped from Consulting to founding her own women's fashion brand!
Paul escaped from the Army to a life of self-directed career experimentation!
Hugh escaped from Heinz to start his own healthy drinks company!
Kiko escaped from Teaching to environmentalist and TransAtlantic rower!
Henry escaped from the Big 4 to Founding an NGO in Africa!
The night is curated by Escape the City — a global community of 275,000 people looking to flourish and come alive through meaningful work. Expect some wild journeys, actionable insights, flowing beers — and leave knowing how you could find fulfilling work and meaning in your career as well.
Host and presenter for the evening: Henry C. Blanchard, who left Deloitte to create an adventure sports business and set up a charity in rural Uganda.
Doors will Open at 7pm, The talk will begin promptly at 7.30pm.
