country & month 1:


The first part of the program is focussed on finding what’s meaningful to you, while launching into your chosen career path.

The Bonding Week kicks the program off, with four days of workshops, emotion and comings together – as you get to know your cohort fast.

Head to the co-working space from Monday to Friday, to move through your online course and collaborate with your peers.

Weekly Workshops on the meaning theme will force you to ask hard questions and recalibrate your life ambitions.

A Meditation Retreat for a few days ends the month. This is about delving deep, reclaiming your focus and deciding what to go “all in” on for the next two months.

country & month 2:


Now the focus is on you taking action, making mistakes and learning fast; while accelerating through your career path.

Habit guidance with a fitness expert giving lighting talks and exercises to jumpstart each week

Weekly Workshops focus on practical skills; with industry experts like Hubspot on marketing, and Patagonia on productivity.

The second sessions of personal and professional mentoring happen, building on the first month’s sessions.

A Fitness Bootcamp ends the month, pushing you to your physical limits. Because physical vitality is key to being sustainably productive.

country & month 3:


The final month of the program is about visualising your greatness, and getting the momentum to slingshot into your entrepreneurial career.

Weekly Workshops focus on insider tips and what life’s really like – from successful founders, freelancers and companies.

Your goal in the co-working space shifts from your online course towards the next steps in your new career.

Each week begins with a quick expert session on your transferrable skills; from EQ to leading to storytelling.

The program culminates in pitching your learnings and future to your cohort;– then a Graduation Ceremony to end on a high
