Join us for a special home-cooked Indian feast at Dhaba Lane and find out how you could get moving into work that matters.
This dinner is for you if:
- you’ve got a nagging feeling that you could be doing something more meaningful with your working life
- you want to know how the great skills you’ve acquired in your corporate career could be put to good use to make the world a better place.
- you’re keen to understand how to navigate the inspiring, expanding social impact sector and find your place within it.
- you're ready to get moving!

Co-founder of Be the Change Journey and founder of Careershifters, Richard Alderson will be hosting this intimate, private dinner in conjunction with a number of Be the Change Journey alumni. We'll be talking about the practicalities of moving into more meaningful work, including:
- How to figure out what you really want to do
- How to make the shift happen – including making the finances work and overcoming the fear of making a big change

We'll also be exploring the increasingly fuzzy boundaries of the 'doing good' sector - charities, social enterprise, international development and business - who's doing what, and where you could fit in.

Leave feeling inspired, better connected, ready to take steps forward... and full of wonderful Indian food.

This dinner is hosted by Be the Change Journey and supported by Careershifters. Be the Change Journey is an immersive adventure in India for people seeking to propel themselves into work that matters - Careershifters helps people find and move into more fulfilling work -
