The Career Changers Awards

The Career Changers Awards are presented annually to exceptional individuals who have changed their careers to live a more purposeful life, and that as a consequence of that, have made the world a better place.

The Career Changers Awards aim to reward the courage and efforts of those who have chosen the less travelled roads in life with the intent to accomplish their life mission and to have a positive impact locally or globally. The Awards want to acknowledge the positive impacts that every individual can have on other people lives, once they are embarking on their journey to self-realisation. Throughout the world, their efforts deserve to be recognised and celebrated.
