World Escape Day 2017: Johannesburg
Mon 6 March 2017, 18:00 – 20:30 SAST
Be part of the movement!
Join us in Johannesburg for inspiration on challenging the status quo.
Come explore the art of career experimentation, and how small steps can lead to big change. Get motivated, learn practical ways forward, and meet new friends who will help you make different possible.
Different is Possible!
This is your chance to take small steps towards big change and gather with likeminded professionals in Johannesburg for an evening of inspiration. It's about rejecting unfulfilling work, finding direction, making brave career changes, and building businesses.
Making a career change is hard, but it’s so much easier (and more fun) doing it with people who get it.
This is your opportunity to move forward and to take the next steps in your own journey.
What to expect:
You'll hear from speakers who will inspire and offer practical advice and information on making changes in your career. The focus will be on entrepreneurship and collaboration. We will discuss entrepreneurial journeys, the most important lessons learnt along the way, where to start, how to deal with fear and failure, survival strategies and much, much more. We will also have some fun activities to help you kickstart your escape and connect you with likeminded people.
An Open Mic session will allow you to steal the stage and tell us about your plans and escape ideas. Stick around afterwards for a bite to eat and engineer some serendipity to start a new life adventure.
Come and escape the boring with us!
