Adapt your skills

The path to personal and professional success isn't always clear, especially when a rapidly evolving world is affecting the way we work, connect and cope. That’s why sessions at the 2021 Grow Your Career Conference are focused on how we can be empowered and build skills to excel in a new era of work.

Leading career experts and experienced professionals hosted one-hour sessions in early March exploring a variety of topics to help you better navigate the changing work world.

The Three Stories Every Career Needs 

Sharpen your career story telling skills by learning the difference between the story we tell ourselves, the story we tell others and the story our target sector tells itself. You’ll leave knowing which career stories to invest in and how to tell them with confidence to support your professional goals.

Career Wellness 

As we adapt to a changing career landscape, how do we make space to unpack our experience and prioritize wellness? Understanding our emotions and the science of self-compassion are core strategies to help us adapt, reconsider how we engage with our work and connect to what’s most important. Tune in to where you are at right now and what you need in your life and career.
