Discover how you can use your strengths and passions to support your career development.

As the end of the calendar year approaches, we often reflect on our achievements and how we met challenges which can lead to thinking about ambitions for our career. To feel fulfilled and reach work and home-life goals, you need to start thinking of yourself as the ‘CEO’ of your career.

This 60-minute webinar will explain how the first step is to look back on your career path, which strengths have helped you, who has been an important mentor, and what you have learnt about what you value.
