Press Coverage

“The most important thing I learned with Escape The City is that nothing will change unless you make the change. It is so important to surround yourself with like-minded people for encouragement at down-times.”

Caitlin Wallis, Founding Esc Member

“Escape helped me to learn that I’m not strange or stupid for quitting my corporate job to go in search of a more meaningful career. There’s loads of amazing people out there who are doing the same thing, with ideas and passion, all who helped to inspire me.”

Andy Smith, Founding Esc Member
