Career Development

Getting Into The Career Zone

The early stage of anyone’s career is an exciting and transitional time because getting in the career zone is new, unknown territory.  It is also a time when recognising your value and the impact  you can make can be a challenge.

This comes even more sharply in to focus with doctoral students.  Despite the value they add to the economy and society, many have the opposite perception; unable to recognise and articulate their value and potential.

Innovating Your Career

It’s fair to say I have had a varied career path.  From researcher to industrial chemist to business leader to entrepreneurial experimenter and talent developer.  I’m also proud to say that over the years I have helped thousands of people invest in their professional development and career development; many of them doctoral students.

A doctoral graduate myself, I was inspired by these interactions and my own success (and shaky moments!) to create the Innovating Your Career approach; a practical framework for adopting the right attitude and approach to achieving career success.

Doctoral students are taking advantage of the Innovating Your Career approach thanks to my comprehensive range of services.
