Event Details

Learn how you can join a new generation of people who have the freedom to work from the road and explore the world while earning a living.

Are you feeling uninspired at work? Have you considered escaping the rat race to pursue your dreams? Always been envious of people who have a choice between working from the Australian Outback or their sofa in their pyjamas? It might sound like a pipe dream, but unchaining yourself from your desk and becoming a digital nomad has never been easier.

Run by award-winning journalist and editor Lauren Razavi with her business partner, coder-turned-writer Jesse Onslow Norton, this three-hour course will share practical insights into what it takes to travel the world and make a living at the same time, and outline how you can forge your own path that combines adventure and entrepreneurship.

You will learn how to earn income and budget effectively on the road, how to look after your wellbeing while pursuing long-term travel, and achieve a good balance between productivity and pleasure.


  • Understand the different work options you can pursue while travelling long-term

  • Build up a realistic picture of what it’s like to travel and work, and how being a digital nomad differs from being on a gap year or going on holiday

  • Learn how to be productive, no matter the country you find yourself working from

  • Think about the world globally and create a professional network that spans whole continents - not just countries

  • Seek out relevant resources to help you plan your trip, get advice with others who have been there, and cope with the ups and downs that come with being a digital nomad
