"BEYOND THE DAY JOB!"
28th October 2015 from 17.30pm registration
6pm Event commences
'Everyone is juggling : job, home, interests, commitments. Are there ways to carve out time to think, to learn, to plan, to study?'
Moving into more senior roles requires a broader range of skills and these need to be acquired whilst holding down the day job. Achieving a Board, Trustee or Advisory position also needs more than excellence in your day job. Drawing on her experience and new options, Claire Smith will offer food for thought to attendees on realist ways to look beyond surviving the day job.
Claire Smith runs her own consultancy, CH Smith Consulting Ltd. A former senior diplomat, during an unconventional career she worked in China, Pakistan, Germany and Switzerland for the UK government, a major Swiss bank, the UK Cabinet Office and the German Foreign Ministry.
Claire reinvented herself after a full-time career in public service. Drawing on her experience of policy formulation, risk, international relations and good governance, she now provides consultancy services to private companies, individuals, public sector and not-for-profit clients in the UK and internationally. Recent international activities include training, briefing and advisory work in the UK, West Africa, and the Middle East. Claire speaks German, French, Spanish and Mandarin and his currently learning Arabic.
Claire was a Non-Executive Director of the Mott Macdonald Group from 2008-2012. She has been chair of governors of an East End primary school, described as one of the most improved schools in England; and is now a Trustee of the Ampleforth Abbey Trust.
