Description

Join us for Hong Kong’s first Escape Inspires event on Monday 24th July 2017. Networking starts at 6:45pm and the event will kick off at 7:15pm

Life is short. Do work that matters to you.

‘Escape Inspires’ is about connecting with like-minded people, learning from one another, and injecting a bit of inspiration into your life. We are passionate not just to help people escape from unfulfilling work, but what people escape to. To freedom, passion, autonomy, fulfilment. To more connected and more meaningful lives. To 21st Century Careers, built on your terms, not someone else’s.


Join us on Monday 24th July to:

  • Learn from two inspirational speakers on their fascinating stories, how they escaped from their mundane corporate lives to work that is now much more meaning and purposeful

  • Ask our guest speakers for practical advice

  • Connect with a wide range of people all on different parts of their escape journeys

  • Take back control of your life and start making changes to your careers today.


Our speakers line-up:


Vivienne, a former banker, is the founder of Fast Gourmet, which specialise in French sous-vide cooking gourmet and carefully sourced natural ingredients with its online shop and concept store/ cafe in Central. She is also the founder of CMI Consultancy, a business advisory firm specialises in project financing.


Mac had a lengthy 15-year career in technology and marketing both in Asia and the United States before declaring the nuclear option with life in the corporate world. He will be sharing with you pieces of his journey after he blew up his life, which include a move to Bangkok to find himself, a few entrepreneurial ventures and failures, helping others to find their path, and how he's now cautiously moving back into the rat race with his latest startup, Bucket Technologies.


Simon, a former Marketing Director, now dedicates his time to dive travel, journalism, pool photography and distribution of photography products. A life-long traveler who speaks 6 languages and has dived on all 5 continents, he takes groups of divers to interesting destinations. As a PADI instructor and professional photographer his key ambition is to provide unusual dive experiences and further the capabilities of his guests.


Please note: there is a limited amount of space, so please only register for a ticket if you definitely plan on attending, to ensure no one misses out on plotting their escape!


The event will be held at Cafe 8, located on the top floor on the Maritime Museum at Central Ferry Pier 8. They’re a wonderful community enterprise so do support them with a food or drink purchase.
