  1. Reflections from Zanzibar: The value of giving and taking opportunities

    Posted on

    I recently spent a week in Zanzibar, an African island in the Indian Ocean, just off the coast of Tanzania. It was my first time visiting and, though I’d love to holiday there another time, this trip was worth so much more than that. 

    I was invited to deliver a development session as part of the International Association of Women in Radio & Television (IAWRT) 39th biennial conference. My session was presented to over 40 journalists and presenters - from 20 different countries including Afghanistan, Iraq, Sierra Leone, India, the Philippines, Norway, the USA, and more - about how to leverage their LinkedIn profiles to build authority.

  2. 7 ways coaching will help your career

    Posted on

    Everyone’s at it! From your favourite sports star, award-winning actress, to your favourite soap star or most-listened-to musician. In fact I'd take a bet that your former boss and the business leaders you most admire are all doing it too!

    Doing what?
    I'd take a bet that they are all having coaching or mentoring sessions, to improve their game, whatever their game is. 

    As leaders in their fields, they know they need to stay ahead of the crowd. Coaching helps them do this, and it will help you do the same! 

    In this blog I share with you my 7 ways in which coaching will help your career and much more: 

  3. Making the moves that count post-redundancy

    Posted on

    Redundancy is hard. There’s no two ways about it. But what you do - or don’t do - after it can make all the difference to your future.

    I’ve written before that a redundancy ‘signals a chance to assess your lifestyle’. It’s a time for you to really think hard about what you want next from your career, and how you’re going to make that happen. 

  4. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

    As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic fallout, the number of UK redundancies this year is estimated at 134,000 so far, though many more positions are expected to head that way over the coming months, too.

     If you’ve been made redundant during 2020, you’re not alone.

     But you’re probably wondering - what next?

     Sadly, at a time of increased redundancy, employment opportunities are fewer.

     Times like this are made from a cruel mix of less full-time employment positions available, and many more people scrambling to win them. Not a position any jobseeker wishes to find themselves in.

     I know this all sounds bleak, but bear with me because there is a solution to your problems.

     As the saying goes; ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’.

    For those willing to step outside of their comfort zone, there are a lot of opportunities available.

    Though many full-time jobs no longer exist, it doesn’t mean that the requirements of those jobs have disappeared altogether.

    It’s common that companies no longer need someone for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week but that they instead need someone to step in and take care of a few of the former-role responsibilities.

     Enter: Consultants.

     A consultant’s role is increasingly important during times like this, and companies are clambering over each other to find the right person.

    That person could be you in as little as 6 weeks’ time if you take the right, and relevant, steps today.

    I know, taking the Leap into Consulting™ can seem intimidating. There is a lot to think about but my tried and tested method gets results.

    Think of it this way: in 6 weeks’ time, what are your chances of finding - and landing - your perfect new job?

     If you join my Bootcamp, alongside it’s other go-getter delegates, I’m sure you’ll find your chances are better than you ever could have hoped for.
