Afternoon session itinerary:

Session: Mapping your skills 

Evidence says we are great at seeing one-another's strengths, but less good at seeing our own. This session will leave you with an honest, fulsome, and inspiring skills map. You can refer to this before applying for roles or promotions, or in performance reviews. It also forms the basis of a great CV. And for some participants, it's something they refer to whenever their confidence is not at its peak, to remember just how great they really are! Coffee break

Session: Your goals

A session devoted to reflect on your ambitions and goals, to identify challenges and create a plan to address them. Ruth will take you through a brilliant process which leads to an achievable plan which you can enact in the coming weeks and months.


The event, which is being held in central London, is strictly limited. Tickets are £40 plus Eventbrite fees, and are available here.
