FURTHER&MORE - ONE DAY CAREER EVENT
Sat 6 May 2017, 09:00 – 17:30 BST
Thank you for your interest in our careers one day event. We're pretty excited about it and hope you'll be able to join us.
The goal of the day is to create space in your busy lives to spend some time reflecting on your personal career goals and to learn some new skills, while building a network of brilliant, like-minded people.
You have told us that you are time poor, and struggle to fit in evening events alongside other priorities. So we have created an agenda with six sessions over the course of one day, offering the opportunity to do some in-depth work with a range of experts.
There will be two short pre-work exercises to complete: our online questionnaire, which captures an overview of your skills, approach and values (you will receive a readout on the day) and a positive feedback exercise. These aren't onerous, and provide valuable insight on the day and after.
Session 1: Welcome, initial goal setting, breakfast
Session 2: Speed Networking
Time to meet your fellow attendees. Before we start, we'll share advice for how to make a great first impression.
Session 3: Negotiation workshop
A highly-regarded expert will help you develop the new skills you’ll need to negotiate and influence. These skills are vital when agreeing working patterns, roles, responsibilities and salaries.
Lunch: a light (but delicious) lunch.
Session 4: Communication
Building on the networking and negotiation sessions, we’ll use a game to practice and refine communication skills.
Session 5: Skills mapping
Time to think about your skills, drawing on all areas of your life. There is strong evidence that we are great at seeing one-another's strengths, but less good at seeing our own. So we will form small groups to challenge each other to set out an honest, fullsome, and inspiring skills map.
Session 6: Goal re-setting
After a day of fun, a space to reflect again on your ambitions and goals, to identify challenges and create a plan to address these.
Every attendee will go home with a goody bag and lots of future plans!
The price for the day includes breakfast, lunch, drinks and snacks
