Hi there, I’m Dr Elaine, Career Developer and lifelong Career Adventurer. Thank you for reading this a-bit-about-me page. Don’t worry I’m not going to take you on a rambling ego trip. Who’s got time for that!
My approach to career development is called Innovating Your Career. It’s inspired by helping thousands of people with their professional development and career progression. It’s designed to put value at the heart of your career; helping you move into new career territory with purpose, confidence and style.
Whatever your situation or experience, combining vision, creative thinking with positive action is what will bring you results and rewards.
And that’s where I come in. I help you make your career pivot a reality.
Why do I know so much about career pivoting?
As well as helping others I’ve done it myself several times. In fact, I’ve done it with my business and myself this year. Yep, lockdown forced me to re-evaluate my aspirations and now I’m turning them into reality. Epic!
Ooh, before I forget, here’s a snapshot of my professional past. Lots of pivot action there too 🙂
From boilersuit to boardroom and beyond: After completing my PhD in Chemistry, my adventure began in manufacturing where I worked as an industrial chemist. Having been bitten by the business bug I moved into commercial and business roles; reaching executive level.
I got bored and frustrated with corporate flannel* (aka blah, blah, blah) and decided to use my product, business and people development combo to start my own positive wave.
So I left my board-level role and set off on my own entrepreneurial path. Via jewellery, business mentoring and talent development, I finally found my true purpose. It took me long enough! Inspiring and supporting professionals and professionals-in-waiting on their career adventures.
PS… *flannel: to talk nonsense in a soothing, plausible manner
PPS… You’ll see EH Enterprises here ‘n’ there, it’s a trading name
