XYBOOM Story Night 2014

Do you want to create positive change in your community through a meaningful career? Are you thinking of transitioning out of traditional employment (or avoiding it completely!) to start a self-directed career? Do you want to define ‘work’ and ‘success’ on your own terms?

CONCEPT | For many, the concept of a ‘dream job’ is idealized and yet, can feel out of reach. Despite this, more and more individuals are re-defining what ‘work’ looks and feels like on their own terms. This story night will be an opportunity for co-mentorship and knowledge exchange around how to create meaningful work and livelihood through non-traditional career paths. As a participant, you will hear about key learnings, strategies and experiences directly from 3 storytellers in various stages of their own paths, and have the opportunity to delve deeper into discovering ways to build your own capacity and what your next steps might be.

Through our unique participatory XYBOOM design, participants will gain a greater understanding of the diverse opportunities possible outside the traditional 9-5, the importance of capacity building and skill development in pursuing a self-directed career and perhaps, the courage to take the next step(s) in forging their own paths.

At this workshop you will:

  • hear and learn from 3 storytellers who are changemakers and unconventional entrepreneurs in a participatory workshop format that will inspire your next steps in making your goals around meaningful work a reality.
  • have a truly engaging and participatory workshop experience that moves from active listening and learning, to facilitated activities and dialogue designed to spark ideas and action!
  • have the opportunity to network and meet other like-minded individuals who are also forging their own paths to meaningful work
  • …and more! We will also provide a light dinner to keep you energized through the evening.
