World Escape Day 2017: Bristol
Mon 6 March 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
Different is Possible!
Be part of the movement.
Join us in Bristol on Monday 6 March to challenge the status quo.
All too often, Mondays are dreaded for the return to the office and a dreary week ahead. We want this Monday to be one that inspires us to rethink our work and our futures. Join us, because you and others who are motivated and determined to take back their Mondays can change the world!
Come explore the art of career experimentation, and how small steps can lead to big change. Get motivated, learn practical ways forward, and meet like-minded professionals in Bristol who will help you make different possible. This event is about rejecting unfulfilling work, finding direction, making brave career changes, and building businesses with others who want more from Mondays.
What to expect:
You'll hear from a couple of speakers who will inspire and offer practical advice and information on making changes in your career. The focus will be on identifying what change you want and working with others on how to get there. We will discuss alternative choices, entrepreneurial journeys, lessons learnt along the way, where you can start, how to deal with fear, failure and much, much more. We aim to kick-start your escape and connect you with like-minded people who will keep you on track. We also welcome you to stick around afterwards for informal mingling & drinks nearby and start your journey towards a new life adventure.
Come and escape the boring with us!

Belinda has walked across Nicaragua, searched for camels in China's Desert of Death, discovered ancient rock paintings in Lesotho, pioneered inclusive expeditions for people with disabilities, lead a dozen youth development expeditions around the world and gained a Guinness World Record for rowing unsupported around Britain. An expert expedition leader, Belinda has managed remote trips for, amongst others, outdoor survival gurus Ray Mears and Bear Grylls. But her real passion is to help others live more adventurously. Her escape was quitting the job that paid her six figures to travel around the world to start a movement she calls "the adventure revolution" 8 yrs ago, through her non-profits Explorers Connect, Wild Night Out, Base Camp Festival. In that time she's helped tens of thousands of people live more adventurously and raised tens of thousands for charities that help kids get outside.
