Curious about where life could take you? Feeling unfulfilled, unhappy or unsure about your trajectory? Do you simply want a change but you are unsure of what to do next or how to make it happen?

Although still relevant in certain sectors, the concept of working “9 till 5” is slowly becoming ancient history. The digital transformation era provides new opportunities for each one of us to reinvent ourselves and take more control over our destiny.

The aim of the workshop is to challenge you to think about your “career” differently. It is time to let go of old-fashioned thinking that might be subconsciously slowing you down. Is there such a thing as a “career path/career ladder”? “What are the barriers that you believe exist between yourself and your dream job?”. More importantly, how much are you prepared to pay to get the career that you want?

Throughout this workshop, you will be introduced to a framework that will provide you with the tools that you need to start building a plan to unlock your potential and your career:

  • Self-discovery – Who are you? What makes you unique? What do you bring to the table?
  • Diversity – Creative ways to build up experience in various fields and develop skills that are necessary to your next move
  • Leadership – Use the concept of “leading without authority” to get yourself noticed and get the result you want from your peers AND your managers
  • Fun – How to bring the “work hard, play hard” philosophy when juggling a busy and demanding career

Some says that the “World is your oyster”. At the end of this workshop, our speaker Naily Makangu hopes to convince you to join her philosophy to “turn your world into your personal playground”.
