Career boot camp – Getting a flying start to your career

Every year another group of people start out with great intentions to manage and develop their careers. However, few are given the tools to successfully navigate the challenges that lie in wait. To be successful in today’s workplace requires a new adaptable way of thinking and behaving. This session sets out a step-by-step business approach to career management.


Some key strategies that are explored during this session are based on Sean’s book “Slave to a Job, Master of your Career”. By joining their peers on this workshop, they will be able to discuss common issues and challenges and more importantly leave with a practical 100-day action plan.
