- Frequently Asked Questions -

What are the Escape Velocity, Transition Blueprint selection criteria? +


I’m looking for a small group of very specific people for the current intake of ‘Escape Velocity, The Transition Blueprint’. Here’s what I’m looking for:

  • You want to transition from your job to something more fulfilling and "on-purpose"
  • You could be in any of the following positions:
    a) You don’t know what you want to do
    b) Know what you want to do but don’t know how to do it
    c) Know the what and the how but scared to take the next step
    d) Already making the move but not going as fast as you’d like
    e) You’re kicking ass and ready to take it to the next level
  • You are looking to make real progress towards the life and career you want
  • You want to gain clarity about the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ of this work transition
  • You are committed to making serious progress and completing a successful transition (If you have no idea what that transition looks like at the minute, or if it currently looks impossible, that’s fine!  What we want to know is that you’re open to a positive change in your work situation).

If these points describe you, you could be a great fit for Escape Velocity.

What if I have self-doubt or feel like ‘who am I to do work I love’? +


This is a surprisingly common concern for people who are drawn to doing work they’re passionate about. It’s a perfectly normal part of the development process, and it’s one of the things we’ll be helping you resolve early in the Escape Velocity programme. In fact, you may be surprised to discover that getting this handled turns out to be easier than you think.

Will EV work for me if I don’t have a clue what I want to do / don’t have qualifications / am scared at the prospect of leaving my current job etc? +


Many people start the programme with no clear idea of what they want to do, or how they’re going to get there. But experience shows that as you learn how to tap into your inner source of guidance and direction, the way forward begins to appear. In fact, many of our most successful graduates are people who started out thinking they had no idea what they wanted to do, and were terrified of the prospect of leaving the perceived security of a job that no longer fit them. Over and over again, we find that as you tap into your inner source of security, direction and passion, the path forward becomes obvious and you find the courage to take the next step. Best of all, it works even if you don’t think you have those qualities (because you DO, even if you don’t know it yet).

What kind of time commitment will EV require? +


The Escape Velocity Transformational Bootcamp lasts two days (though if you’re catching up on video, you should probably allow for 8 hours in total). Aside from that, if you allow 3 hours per week (30-40 minutes per day) for consuming the learning materials and participating in the group coaching sessions, you’ll be in a great position. Of course, feel free to put in more time during the programme. After all, you’re creating the foundations for a fulfilling and inspiring life, and the actions you take today are going to be paying off next week, and twenty years from next week. NB: Many of the learning materials can be consumed while you’re doing other things (E.g. driving, walking, working out, doing the laundry etc).

What makes this different from other programmes? +


The Escape Velocity, The Transition Blueprint isn’t just about information; it’s about transformation. The internet is overflowing with information about tools, tactics and techniques. But information alone won’t give you the life and work you desire; you also need transformation. The core learning modules of Escape Velocity are massively transformative, and don’t require you to make notes. Your quality of life and clarity of direction will transform simply by listening to them. This is one of the reasons many of our graduates go through the learning modules again and again. And as you go through the transformation, your ability to select and implement exactly the right information gets easier and easier.

How can I get my [spouse, parent, friend] on board with Escape Velocity? +


Many of our students are keen to get the support of a close friend, colleague or loved one before committing to the programme. When they ask, “How can I get my [spouse, parent, friend] on board?”, I usually say something like this:

Your [spouse, parent, friend] knows you well. The most powerful communicator to them will be your level of certainty about whether or not Escape Velocity is a good fit for you. If you’re not sure, they’re likely to reflect that uncertainty back to you. If you’re 100% that this is the right programme for you, they’re likely to pick up on your certainty and reflect that back to you. So here’s what I recommend; take a little time to reflect on these questions:

Are you up for doing Escape Velocity and moving to the work you’re here to do or not? Are you ready to make a profound and lasting breakthrough in your professional and personal life?

This is an important decision, and Escape Velocity is not for everybody. You’re going to be going through some major transformations, and it’s not to be entered into lightly. Reflect on it carefully, and decide for yourself. If you decide it isn’t a good fit for you, you don’t need to discuss it with your [spouse, parent, friend]. If you this is a good fit for you, and you’re 100% committed to making this change, the person or people you discuss it will pick up on your clarity and certainty. And that gives you your best chance at getting them on board.

Do you have proof that EV actually works? / How do I know if EV will work for me? +


We’ve been testing and refining the Escape Velocity programme for over a year, and have worked closely with over 60 people. We have clients who have transitioned to their dream job and doubled the value of their package before the 3 months of the programme even finished! We have others who have negotiated valuable exit packages from jobs that no longer suit them, and yet others who have started their own businesses or coaching practices.

We also have clients who have discovered a new sense of enjoyment and aliveness in their current roles, turning what used to be drudgery into an opportunity for experimentation and fulfilment. Of course, we also have people who have tried Escape Velocity and haven’t made the amount of progress they anticipated. However, when we’ve followed up with them, we’ve found that in almost every case, it’s been because of a change in their priorities, and where they put their attention and action. We find that the results you get will relate directly to a) how much you engage with the programme and b) how much action you’re willing to take.

Can I pay for Escape Velocity in instalments? +


Price details are available when the programme is open for enrolments. We also offer affordable payment plans for Escape Velocity: The Career Transition Blueprint. If you want to speak to a member of the team to explore extended payment plans, please email

What if I can’t attend Escape Velocity in person? +


While we have a number of clients who join us live in-person in London for the Transition Blueprint Bootcamps, the majority of our clients join us from their own homes and offices, all over the world, via our state-of-the-art live-streaming facility. One of our objectives over the past 4 years has been to create a live-streaming experience that’s equal to the live-in-person experience, and we’ve managed to achieve that with flying colours.

In addition to the Bootcamps, all group coaching and 1:1 coaching sessions are held via our virtual system from wherever you are in the world. Plus everything is recorded, so you can go through the material again and again.

Graduates of our programmes hail from dozens of countries around the world, including Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, the UK, the USA and Vietnam.

How long do I get access to Escape Velocity for? +


I'm offering lifetime access to Escape Velocity, The Transition Blueprint, which means that you can retake the digital elements of the program for as long as it’s in existence — for free.

Our graduates benefit from the programme over and over. Here’s what one of our students, Alan Combies told us:

"I like to call this programme the gift that keeps on giving because I keep coming back to the modules. I watched the recordings of every single two day event that you guys run there because I would get something out of it every single time." – Alan Combies

Every year we update the programme to reflect changes in technology and ‘the state of the art’ of the world of work. Plus, you’re going to be part of the vibrant Escape Velocity community, where you can learn from and contribute to like-minded people who are on your wavelength and sharing the journey with you. You get all of this, every year, for FREE.
