Too many women in business doubt themselves. They watch quietly as others get the promotion, the acknowledgement and the opportunities and wonder silently, “why didn’t that happen to me?” Well stop wondering silently and watching quietly because……people who take action get noticed!

It’s very simple - energetic people get things done. So steer yourself away from your passive ‘I’m-getting-nowhere’ strategy of career advancement or business development and stir things up a little by doing something!

Listen as Jo taps into her 30 odd years of experience in senior positions and explains how to recognise opportunities, and then act to secure them.

Learn how to recognise and overcome the unconscious biases in others that may be inhibiting your career.

Grow as you develop your personal network and come to understand the power of positive relationships.
