Career Change and Re-training
A practical, fun and inspiring workshop designed to help you through those first key steps of changing careers and make a realistic action plan.
Are you ready for something else?
Looking to find the job that works for you and your family?
Then this workshop is for you. As actually we meet lots of working mums who are exactly at that stage. In fact women find they re-invent themselves several times throughout their careers.
In our experience it’s not easy to come up with something new and change direction. It really does help to stop, think, and get some outside input to help you take that next step.
This workshop will let you be inspired, learn about your passion and help you through those first mental steps to just go for it!
