Meet Lydia

Lydia Lee is the Founder and Corporate Escape Coach at Screw The Cubicle, a movement to inspire people to break free from the shackles of conventional work.

After leaving her six figure job in Canada years ago in pursuit of a path less conventional, this had led her to now be an advocate for career freedom, and meaningful work with purpose.

From building businesses to forging freelance careers, she’s already helped hundreds of talented professionals repurpose their skills to create better versions of their careers and become better versions of themselves.

Now based in Bali, Indonesia, Lydia’s been published in Forbes, The Huffington Post, been featured in Elle Canada and The Telegraph newspaper.

“The future of work is quickly coming into full view – and Lydia is on the front of the wave sharing the story and inspiring many of us into action.”
