Escape presents: TRIGGER Conversations (Take #6)
Thu, April 6, 2017, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM BST
Say Goodbye to boring small talk.
Hello adventurous, intimate and non-linear conversations.
Escape the City and TRIGGER Conversations have joined forces to bring you an evening of deep, meaningful and exciting conversations with your peers. Expect a conversation menu – canapés, starters, main, dessert and cheese – the depth and length of the questions depends on the course. We give you the questions. You provide the answers. No prep necessary. Just turn up with an open mind.
Ask something unusual. And be honest in your answers. Tell someone what you really think and feel.
*This is a special event*
Escape the City + TRIGGER Conversations = Meaningful work + Meaningful conversations.
Escape the City is on a mission to liberate one million people to do work they love. Not just find more fulfilling work but create it too. Expect some conversations to get you talking about your escape, your values and your curiosities as well as the usual fun, thoughtful and intimate TRIGGER Conversations questions.
Here’s an example or two…
‘When I was a child, I wanted to be...'
‘Would you like to live more in your body or in your head?’
‘What makes a person a good travelling companion?
‘What is your superpower?’
‘How would you spend the rest of 2017 if money were no object?’
…and many more (We won’t ruin the surprise!)
This event is for you if:
- You think you're more than your job.
- You value spontaneous, quirky or creative conversations that expand your perspective and challenge you.
- You’re bored of small talk.
- You want to make meaningful connections with others but without the awkward networking part.
- You want to learn how easy it is to talk to strangers in a meaningful way.

In a few words...
‘You spend a lot of time in conversations wanting to get to this point, and this is all about getting to the fun bit of the conversation… and it is facilitated so you get know something worthwhile about people right away and you want to share because people are here to share and people are here to listen.. it's a lot of fun…a lot of real, human experience packed into one evening.'
'Brilliant event the other night :) I've been meaning to come for ages, glad I finally did! It's so important that we do what we can to build up our social fabric - a fabric that can seem tragically weak at times - and this is a great step towards it. The questions force one to avoid the superficial and the automatic, and instead connect on a deeper level - something that we could do well translate into our daily lives.'
‘It was great to just spend an evening having stimulating conversations and developing perspective. There was no agenda to the conversations (i.e. networking, speed dating) and that was really cool: to value a good conversation for simply that. Thank you!’
