Escape: How to find your passion & switch careers
Adele Barlow, Escape the City // Rob Symington, Escape the City
We all know what ideal work looks like - it's stimulating, well-paid, allows us to control our own time, and helps us to feel more alive by tapping into our deepest interests. We also know that it's difficult for busy corporate professionals to find the time to reflect on making this a reality. But if you want to switch into more fulfilling work, you'll need to invest some time into investigating the best path forward.
Started in London in 2009 by two frustrated management consultants, Escape the City has since grown to a global community of over 85,000 corporate professionals who want to 'do something different'. The purpose of this workshop is to share what we've learned about helping corporate professionals escape from unfulfilling work, and to help you shape your next moves towards finding work you love.
From the basics of mapping out the process of career transition, the questions you need to ask yourself, and learning how to get unstuck, you'll leave with more clarity on how to make career change a reality. You'll get practical tools to help shape a vision for your life, insight into building an online presence, and tips for what to expect in the transition.
When & Where
Escape the City - The Escape School
The Escape School is Escape the City's events arm.
We put on courses, events and meetups aimed at educating and empowering corporate professionals for alternative career paths, entrepreneurialism and adventure.
There is so much rubbish career and startup advice out there. So many unhelpful myths. We are building the Escape School to teach what we wish we’d learnt back in 2009 when we were stuck… sitting glumly on the Tube wondering how on earth to get out.
If Escape the City is a community that helps corporate professionals ‘do something different’ then the Escape School is where we engage closely with you (in the real world). It has been founded with one single objective: to help you grapple with that huge, scary, unmanageable yet exciting question: “What Next?"
