It's not easy to see where careers will go whenever "new normal" happens.
This uncertainty can cause a lot of stress for younger people starting off a career path.
That's why I happily agreed to talk on the summit organised by friend and colleague, coach Andrea Theisz who runs Purpose After Burnout Masterclass & Your Superhero Career group coaching program.
Andrea is using her past experience as motivation for this summit as she herself went from stressed out and unhappy lawyer to a business analyst, a yoga teacher in between and now to running her own business.
I'm joined by some amazing colleagues such as Norma T Hollis (USA) who is a powerhouse of knowledge and expertise which is why I invited her to speak in an episode of "Make Monday Mine" podcast - I know she has been on a big hunt in her own life for a strongly principled way of being and it makes her a great guide.
Then Jaz Broughton (UK) who organised another online summit called "The Fearless" in 2020 where she interviewed speakers from all walks of life and all stages of the game life and career. I was lucky to be one of those speakers and have continued to love the way Jaz shows up with a strong message of empowerment. Her workshops on listening are powerful tools in a time where 2020 showed us all how much we need that skill.
Kay Newton (UK) who I've know for years has a straight talking sensible and skilled approach to guiding her clients through midlife crisis and to a simplicity that is fulfilling. Kay's daily zoom calls during lockdown kept many a household sane and were like a great international gathering over the garden fence bringing much needed laughter and a place to let of steam.
A woman who I've only recently had the pleasure to meet is Nada Samman (United Emirates) - another experienced professional with a whole story and loads of wisdom to share especially around skills and attitudes needed for a successful career.
I'm looking forward to discovering for the first time the worlds of Soma Ghosh, Annelise Pesa, Ann Hinds, Linda McBee, and Serita Valmond.
The job of translating all this female wisdom into a male optic is Chris MacBrien who has a long track record of working as a career and education
advisor for young people moving into or out of under-graduate education. This is a vital link as right now it is younger professionals who are suffering the most.
So please do share this event aimed as being a starting point for deeper conversations.
