What Can Your Experience Do For Others?
Each time I introduce myself, (and I’ve been to some excellent work events recently), I say that I’ve been consulting for 11 years. I do understand that my successful consulting business grew organically through experiences I’d gained in employment, travel and relationships.
Thinking about different ways to utilise these skills has resulted in a new workshop. I tested it last year on some very supportive friends, who gave me such positive feedback, I’ve decided to share it with a broader audience.
So, next week, I’m “changing hats” for a day. It’s exciting to do something different with the skills I’ve learnt as Aide de MD. We all know people who are considering changing careers or returning to work and unless you find a fab recruitment consultant or career coach, it’s difficult to find someone to give you direction.
The Daily Telegraph and Manly Daily have promoted the workshop (http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/newslocal/manly-daily/local-woman-helping-daunted-parents-get-back-on-career-ladder/news-story/fcf18e831a9284bade8b60a6447b7a35) , it seems to have hit a cord with people from all walks of life and is the beginning of something new for me – both invigorating and daunting at the same time. My core business will not change, but another aspect of learning will benefit me and my client base.
