If you've been part of the UK FIRE community for any length of time, then you'll probably have come across the Escape Artist blog.

Barney Whiter is a breath of fresh air in a space that's often dominated by American voices. He worked as a chartered accountant for 20 years before quitting his corporate job at age 43. He now works as a coach, helping others to develop their own escape plan and reach financial freedom.

In this month's meetup, Barney will be hosting an 'Ask Me Anything' session, covering anything from FIRE basics to more advanced topics around savings, investing and retirement.
