Event description

Description

Join fellow alumni to learn about managing the emotions of changing careers. In this talk, the former brand marketer turned career change consultant and host of the Career Relaunch (podcast) shares his personal story of career reinvention– leaving medicine to pursue a business career, moving from the US to create a new life in the UK, and leaving the corporate world to launch his own business and podcast. He’ll also explain the seven stages of career change, common myths about changing careers, and the keys to successfully reinventing yourself.

You are invited to arrive from 18.30 for a selection of refreshments (including sandwiches, tea, coffee and wine), for a prompt 19.00 start. At the end of the event, there will be another chance to network with fellow alumni over wine and nibbles.


About Joseph Liu

Joseph Liu helps professionals relaunch their careers by more powerfully marketing their personal brands. He believes you must be willing to make a brave leap to create positive changes in your life, something he’s experienced firsthand. After deciding to drop out of medical school, he eventually got his MBA then worked for 10 years as a brand manager for blue-chip & startup companies in the US & UK on brands including Glad, Liquid-Plumr, Gü Desserts, and Häagen-Dazs. Over time though, being embedded in the corporate world marketing cleaning products and luxury desserts left him feeling uninspired, so he eventually left his desk-job behind to create his own career consultancy.

Joseph now applies principles used to build & relaunch consumer brands to help professionals and aspiring business owners build & relaunch their personal brands. He’s served as a TEDx speaker and has been featured in Forbes, Business Insider, Fast Company, TheMuse, Huffpost, Monster, Career Builder, and Marketing Week.

The podcast has ranked as a Top 40 career podcast in the US & UK and featured as the “best podcast for transitioning to a new career” in Glassdoor.
He received his Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential from the International Coach Federation, MBA from the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business, and Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Northwestern University.
