A Little More

In an economy where markets and technology are constantly changing, opportunities to build a successful, varied career are available for those willing to invest time, be creative and take a proactive approach. A PhD is NOT solely training to be an academic, it is an amazing foundation for much more. We need the high-level skills of postgraduate researchers; we need them in business; we need them in industry.

Innovating Your Career is an interactive 90-minute session for up to 20 participants held on campus at your university.

Designed to help researchers, PGRs and ECRs, at any career stage take a more innovative approach to investing in their career. Created and delivered by Dr Elaine Hickmott; the session is inspired by her personal career experiences as a researcher, industrial chemist, business leader and entrepreneurial experimenter.

See Elaine in action talking about Nurturing Our Knowledge Engine at TEDxDorking


By the end of the session participants will...
• Appreciate why being a researcher is a springboard for career success
And have
• A renewed view of your value, skills and career options
• Fresh perspectives on the world of work, business and research
• Practical tools to assist with evolving career paths
• The ability to explore and create broader-reaching opportunities
