Success Stories
Here’s a selection of Escapees who’ve come through our various programmes led by our Escape experts.
Julie escaped over 12 years as a senior media executive, into a role that gives her space to explore entrepreneurship on the side. Read Julie’s full story here…

“Before I escaped, I was a senior media executive navigating politics, pressures, overtime and restructures for over 12 years. I felt undervalued, unfulfilled, not living my full potential, depleted, and stifled.”

Matt transitioned from a full-time consulting job to found his own coaching company.

“Taking action was pivotal for my mindset shift. I shifted from often thinking; “Oh god, what if I fail?” to now thinking, “let’s treat this as one glorious experiment, where I will fail, learn and be okay.”

Lamia escaped 5 years as a management consultant to take a sabbatical to explore a vast array of curiosities, including cartooning. Read Lamia’s full story here…

“I felt as though I was drifting in my job, with no real control. I was a management consultant for one of the Big Four. I joined the firm as part of a graduate scheme, but 5 years on, I was still there.”

Adrian escaped over 4 years as a tech consultant to a non-for-profit organisation called One Acre Fund, in Malawi. Read Adrian’s full story here…

“Before I escaped I was existing more than living. I felt like I had failed; like I’d blown my shot at a dream life, and was stuck in a bum job that while outwardly looked successful and impressive drove me insane.”

Laina escaped teaching for her own photography project. You can check out her website here and read her full Escape story here…
“I knew I had so much to give to the world, but the system was letting me down. Working 60-70 hour weeks left me feeling miserable and disempowered. I was being undervalued and overworked, and I was suffering.”
Adam escaped sports journalism to work full time on his latest project, Ambigo – connecting communities around the world to help people achieve their ambitions. Read his full Escape story here…

“I felt proud of where I had got to in my career because I was living out my childhood dream of travelling the world commentating on sport, but had reached a stage where it was no longer fulfilling because my personal priorities had changed.”

“I feel empowered, inspired and slightly taller. Fantastic programme filled with very relevant and useful tools. I’m looking forward to utilising these again.”

Kavita, March 2017


“It made me look at what I was good at, ask myself what I actually enjoyed doing (rather than what I thought I ought to enjoy) and when it was written down in front of me in black and white it became clear what I should do.”

Marina, 21 years running estate agencies


“Thank you again for helping me turn my life around so positively.”

Alice, March 2017


“It allowed me to test and challenge my thinking using constructive tools to reach a positive decision on which I have since acted.”

Sarah, lawyer for 25+ years (asked for and was granted a sabbatical the week after the bootcamp!)

“You gave me the chance to talk to other people in the same boat who I’d never have had the chance to speak with but who had similar, and also different experiences that could both accentuate and challenge my ideas. It was hugely liberating and reassuring to do this. Plus the luxury of dedicating time to myself was a pleasure, and something I am not good at doing otherwise. Thank you.”

Chrissie, 2016

“Genuine. No bullshit, just a well researched and honest presentation of what steps can be taken, what to expect when you take those steps, accepting that it’s going to be difficult at times and giving some perspective/understanding to the underlying emotions at play.”

Nick, 2015

“A great way to carve out some thinking time with a good framework and support group to make a change in your career.”

Kelly, 13 years in investment banking

“I have the tools and skills necessary for building my escape plan and executing it. I also felt that there my future was a lot more open and that is ok!”

Ross, 30, freelancer looking for next move

“A fantastic springboard event that has really helped clarify and declutter the range of routes I want to take going forward. The course doesn’t guarantee a prescription for success, but gives you all the ingredients and several recipes to try to create your own.”

Alex, 24+ years in investment banking
