Changing jobs in now a regular part of life. Today the national average tenure in a job is 3.3 years, with expectation that we will have up to five careers in our lifetime. Jobs are also more likely to be temporary or contract based and these trends impact the way we manage our working life.
Judith Bowtell and Albany Lane invite you to join us for breakfast and hear from individuals who have mastered major career changes: from Big Business to Solo Entrepreneur, and from Small Arts and community organisations to major corporates.
So if you are contemplating change in your working life now or in the future ( and you will!) come and join us for breakfast and hear from those who have made the jump, survived and thrived!
