Newsletter (August 2020)

You chose to go on holiday and took a proper break or stayed at home like me I hope you are able to protect some 'me' time and recharge! Following the last newsletter in June I am sharing with you the coming workshops in September, free Career Reboot event in October, a TED Talk on career advice that I loved watching and what I have been up to in terms of collaborations and volunteering work since June. To stay connected join the Career Reboot Communities on Linkedin and Facebook where lots of career-related content and tips are shared.


This is a bi-monthly free and online event where you can join as many times as you like to rethink your career and stay focused on the progression or change you are aiming for. Next event is on Tuesday 13th October at 5pm London time. Watch the invitation video here

TED Talk Share:

The Career Advice You Probably Did Not Get. 

This is an interesting talk which focuses on the conventional career advice women get and that it does not include what will support their career progression and get them to the top (The missing 33%). Highly recommended video for professionals who support gender equality at work.

Meaningful collaborations

- I look forward to running the Busy Careers, Mental and Physical Wellbeing workshop on 15th September that will be hosted by Refresh Yourself. Join us to plan a winter that will support your well-being. - As a Warwick Business School Alumni I joined as a speaker to one of the WBS events for MBA students: 'COVID19: Purpose, Momentum and Return to the Office'. We talked about how organisations and individuals can organise themselves as they start to return to the office and provide options for remote working.


- I am delighted to be a Volunteer Coach for Project5 that is committed to providing the NHS staff in the UK with self-care support following the experience they have gone through Covid19. Project5 volunteers are working hard to spread the word to help the NHS staff benefit from this volunteer support. Feel free to spread the word in your network if relevant. - I provide free mentoring through Pushfar, a platform. If you think you can benefit from guidance in a specific field visit their website.
