Futureproofing your career

This workshop is part of a series of events aimed at those who are facing change and uncertainty in the workplace and who are looking to plan their next steps. Career management is a skill that is expected of all professionals these days, but not everyone is entirely sure what it entails and why it is so important. These sessions will support you to plan and execute your future career journey because your career is yours and not your employer’s.

These are interactive sessions and we encourage you to come prepared to ask questions and share your thoughts on the topics at hand.
