Description

How can you do work you love?

Trigger Conversations and Escape the City are teaming up for a special event because...

The truth is finding meaningful work needs meaningful conversations.




You will spend 90,000 hours of your life working - so it can feel important to do work that makes you jump out of bed and fist pump the air!

However, when carving out this career it can be hard to define what’s meaningful to you, know which direction you should go or even give yourself permission to take a different path.

That’s where we come in.


We know that what you need is conversations with real people - not just inspirational TED talks.

That’s because conversation is a catalyst that...

  • Expands your perspective

  • Reveals what you value

  • Points your curiosity in exciting directions

  • Hones your aspirations from dreams to reality

  • Teaches you new skills and ways of doing things

  • Commits you to action

  • And opens doors to real connections


At this special event you’ll be invited to explore with like-minded meaning-seekers a Conversation Menu packed with questions that skip the small talk and get you to the heart of what matters most.

We’ll ask not what you do, but why you do what you do.

There’s no prep necessary - just turn up with a curious mind and see where the questions take you.

Are you ready to connect with passionate individuals wanting to create meaningful work? We can’t wait!




THIS EVENT IS FOR YOU, IF:

  • You’re bored of small talk.
  • You value spontaneous, quirky or creative conversations that expand your perspective and challenge you.
  • You want to make meaningful connections with other like-minded people but without the awkward networking bit.
  • You want to experience how easy it is to talk to strangers in a meaningful way.
  • You just read the invite and you're super curious!


- ‘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.' -





HOW IT WORKS


The evening is inspired and structured around another great human passion: food!

A seven-course meal of conversation awaits you, starting light, and getting heartier as the evening goes on.

- 'I loved the idea of Trigger from the get-go! For every human interested in other humans, which should be all of us, Trigger really prompts a timely reminder for all of us to scratch below the surface and use our conversations as a tool for real human connection, curiosity, and adventurousness (i.e. it's real and it's awesome)! A fun, curious, playful, at times even salacious, and ultimately utterly hilarious night in the company of great people, this is what collective humanity should be about!' -
