Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Escape the City is a growing network of individuals that are looking for an alternative career and life path. With strong communities in London, Munich and Vienna, Escape the City is coming to Zurich to help individuals find work they love. Whether that means a new job, a new career, or starting your own business, the most important part is finding your tribe.

Join us for an evening of activities and networking, and hear from someone who made the brave decision to escape.

The evening will include exercises that encourage you to talk to one another and think about why you haven’t done what you’ve always wanted to do.

If you’re looking for a career change, or hoping to adjust the way you live in a more radical way, come and meet others like you living in Zurich!

The event will include an apero (small appetizers, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks), and we will hear from John Kelly, who has just returned from a sabbatical where he travelled around the world, after years of working in a large corporation.

Speaker: John Kelly, Former Innovation Manager with Mondelēz, who has just returned from an around the world trip.

John worked in Marketing for 15 years with Kraft Foods, before leaving a stable, comfortable life in Zürich to travel around the world for a year. Pulling both his young kids out of school, forgoing a year of salaries, and cutting into hard-earned savings, the time is never the right to take a year off and do something different. John made the decision to indulge in his wanderlust, reflect on his career and make the most of now. His life changed in more ways than one, and upon returning to Switzerland he has ultimately decided to do something different. He explains why now is the best time to do what you’ve been waiting for, and specifically how to make taking a year off work for you.
