Event Details


Are you bored, underutilised, and suffocated at the office? Have you tried everything short of leaving your job, and still feel miserable?

If you've been feeling this way for a while, it's time to make a change.

This workshop is for you if you want to apply your strengths and talents to do work that matters to you, whether that means changing careers or taking the leap to self-employment. In this workshop, you'll learn how to overcome common obstacles, connect authentically with the right people, and get (or create) the perfect job by translating your unique strengths, skills, and experiences into the language of your new field.


  • Understand the stages of career change, including its challenges and opportunities, what you should and shouldn’t be doing in that stage, and your mantra to fall back on.
  • Have a completed “getting out there” plan
  • Have an inspiring new career story to tell
  • Have a chance to celebrate a past career success or anticipated future success in a group
