Escape the City evenings are a really fun way to spend an evening with some friends, meet some interesting like-minded people, and hear from someone who has an interesting story.
Back by popular demand, we're hosting Charly Cox, a coach and entrepreneur who helps you figure out how to match fulfilling work with paying the rent.

About the speaker
Charly Cox was drawn to leadership work after seven years of work in Africa. In addition to running two sole trading entities (first a consultant and second as a freelance photographer), Charly went on to found and grow her own communications company in Sierra Leone.
Charly started the company on $700 and her kitchen table, and took it through growth without outside investment, using reinvested profit, to create an in-house multi-national team and a sizeable turnover. Clients included member agencies of the United Nations, Oxfam and British Airways. Charly went on to train in coaching and now works with clients in Africa, Asia and the UK. She now works in leadership development as a coach, trainer and speaker.
