Thinking of making a Career Change? New Year, New You!
The Edinburgh WIBF branch was lucky enough to kick off 2019 with our first Personal Excellence Programme (PEP) event of the year; Thinking of Making a Career Change? New Year, New You! hosted by the wonderful Sunchana Johnston. This was another successful, sold out event, hosted in the beautiful St Andrews Square offices of Eden Scott.
The event started with a networking reception over prosecco and nibbles followed by a presentation by Sunchana, which included how she made the move into her dream career plus practical advice into making a leap, starting a business, and exploring the potential benefits, the obstacles and the possibilities of freelancing. This was followed by an agile planning breakout session, where the attendees were split into teams and asked to use an agile, collaborative approach to pull together five practical steps to finding a new job in 2019. It was a relaxed and informal evening and the audience was engaged, with lots of questions and lively discussion.
