Career Crossroads to Career Activist: attracting opportunities in the current climate

17 Oct 2012 - 17 Oct 2012 - London, UK



Bookmark and Share


Summary
Many people approach their career passively, responding to events as they arise, rather than taking charge, spotting all of their options and making it happen. This workshop will help you to assess all of your options – including portfolio career, interim work and self-employment; this session will equip you with the techniques you need to attract more opportunities your way.

Workshop Facilitator Vanessa Boon, MD of Energise, will bring a supportive approach with real-life examples and her trademark combination of humour, inspiration and practical tips!

Vanessa is a Chartered Member of the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development) and an Associate Trainer with the UK Resource Centre for women in SET (Science, Engineering & Technology). She also delivers the award-winning Springboard women’s development programme.

Bursaries
We provide financial support for caring costs. This might be used to contribute to caring costs at home or to the cost of bringing a carer with you to help you while attending this event.
