This Funzing Experience:

What happens when you quit your job to follow your dreams?

We've all thought about it. Throwing in the towel. Giving your boss the finger. Quitting to start a business; become a globe-trotter; work for a non-profit, or just laze on a beach.

But is it possible? Or just a pipe-dream?

Come and hear from SIX ex-employees who took the plunge. What are they doing now? How did it work out? Can you do it too - and if so, how?? What about your mortgage? Family? Relationships? Career??

Hear from these heroes that have made brave and fulfilling career changes, and learn how you could follow them:

  • Flick escaped from PR to starting a Play Consultancy, specialising in Lego therapy!
  • Adela escaped from Consulting to founding her own women's fashion brand!
  • Paul escaped from the Army to a life of self-directed career experimentation!
  • Hugh escaped from Heinz to start his own healthy drinks company!
  • Kiko escaped from Teaching to environmentalist and TransAtlantic rower!
  • Henry escaped from the Big 4 to Founding an NGO in Africa!

The night is curated by Escape the City - a global community of 275,000 people looking to flourish and come alive through meaningful work. Expect some wild journeys, actionable insights, flowing beers - and leave knowing how you could find fulfilling work and meaning in your career as well.

Host and presenter for the evening: Henry C. Blanchard, who left Deloitte to create an adventure sports business and set up a charity in rural Uganda.

Doors will Open at 7pm, The talk will begin promptly at 7.30pm.

LDN Talks @ Night is a new concept which aims to make"Tedx" style talks more accessible. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work beers.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a LDN Talks @ Night event makes the perfect after work mid-week activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
