Event description

Description

This is the 7th Career Brunch event in Birmingham aimed at creating a platform for the City's ambitious and career-minded women to come and share, network, learn and grow.

Past events:

Creating a big vision of where we wanted to be 12 months from now

How to use networking as a strategy for career growth.

How to become more self-confident in your career.

How to stay motivated and productive as you work towards your career goals.

Creating a career strategy and being decisive will help you design the career results you want in the short-term and mid-term (rest of the year and 12-36 months).

Differentiating yourself: Emotional Intelligence and Personal Branding

In this session:

We will explore two aspects that help you position yourself as an expert in your workplace, amongst your peers, seniors and in your industry. You will agree that most people have brilliant ideas but not everyone will be listened to, understood and supported once those ideas are heard. The people that are able to bring their ideas to life have a good grasp on who they need to influence and how to persuade those people in order to see their ideas come to life. Join us for another dynamic and interactive career session.

What to expect:

Speed networking

Exercises, Tools, Strategy and Feedback on:

Identifying the key people you need to influence

Influencing Styles

Personality Styles

Pitching Ideas

The underlying theme is how members of the group support each other in reaching and fulfilling full potential in their individual careers through peer to peer mentoring. There is also a deep recognition that we are the sum of the people we surround ourselves with, so I want to facilitate those meaningful connections and networks that help with the growth.


For this to happen future events may be a mix of relaxed/informal events where it’s just about getting to know each. Sometimes we all need a place of escape. A no judgment zone. A place to be yourself but still be celebrated. Sometimes we need to share a confidential experience. Ask for advice. Be strengthened or strengthen someone else. Sometimes we just want a change of scene.


These events will cater for this and more and you can be guaranteed I will always pick a lush venue, a great speaker or a fantastic activity. Each month will be different but the spirit, ethos of the group will remain the same; career-minded ladies coming together, supporting each other, sharing laughs, stories and growing together. The events are for us so your feedback and suggestions are more than welcome to shape them into something you will enjoy and look forward to attending.
