About this Event

Are you stuck and want to change your career? Want to start your own thing but don’t know where to begin? Do you want to have more impact with your job?

A career should be designed around Growth, Meaning and Autonomy. Yet, a majority of people don’t experience this at all and don’t know how to change this. So where do we go with this?

Why come:

This event is for millennials who feel stuck in a corporate job, and are considering the start up journey.

Our Panelists know what it’s like to be stuck in the rat race, and managed to force their way out.

This evening will help you:

– Understand what other options you have

– Connect to like minded individuals

– Understand the difficulties of switching careers and how to overcome these obstacles

– Find out the first steps you can take

There will also be loads of time to ask our transition experts any question during the Q&A.

Our Panelists

Non-Networking you say?

Let’s be honest, no one really likes to answer “So…what do you do?”, whilst being looked over your shoulder. So we’ve come up with a better way of expanding our network, encouraging better conversations.

The aim: Walk out knowing that you could call two people you just met and ask them for help, because they’d do the same for you.

Come to the event and find out how we make this happen. First drink on us.
