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, go traveling, work for a non-profit, or just laze on a beach.

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

Henry Blanchard spent years moving numbers around excel spreadsheets, sending pointless emails, and staring out of the office window. Until enough was enough.

He sold his possessions, took one bag, moved to Uganda and created an adventure travel business. Now he runs several "lifestyle businesses", and shows others how they too can escape from drudgery and into a more fulfilling career and life.

The talk gives all the key learning from his 4 years of studying and teaching people how to find fulfillment in work and life.

You'll not only hear about people just like you who made a change to find fulfilment, but you can learn how they did it, the methods they used, what they wouldn't do again and exact steps you can take to begin the journey.

Learn the stories of 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??

How to find job vacancies that are never publicised. Sources of funding for your startup. Tips to ease out of your current employment and into something better - and more.

Most importantly - you'll leave knowing it can be done, feeling inspired and ready to begin!

Venue: Hen & Chicken

Doors: 7.00pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
