Thu 8 December 2016, 18:30 – 21:30 GMT
Planning Your Escape
You know you want to do something different..but you’re not sure what that something is, or how to make it happen.
Maybe it’s a different company. Maybe it’s a new career. Maybe it’s starting a business. Or maybe it’s setting off on an adventure. But if you’re not sure where to start or what your options are, leaving a safe job can be scary. Ultimately, you want to do work that matters to you, and to the world. We all do. And there’s a growing community of ambitious people who believe that different really is possible.
Toying with the idea of career change, but don’t know enough about the impact that it would have on your life? This workshop offers practical tools to help you to be smart about plotting your escape – so that you stay in control, and only make the sacrifices you’re willing to make while you take positive steps towards doing work you love.
NB. This is part 3 of our Do Work You Love Series. It is not necessary to attend parts 1 or 2 to join this workshop.
