– Stepping up to become a consultant; leadership theory and practice.
– Tips and tricks for managing your junior colleagues.
– How to handle imposter syndrome.
– Maintaining work-life balance.

Session 2: Making it stick
– Working smart; managing yourself (wellness), your time, using technology and making the most of CME.
– Finding your niche; professional development, other opportunities and career progression.

Session 3: Getting the job
– A small group practical workshop focussing on your CV and interview skills.


This three-part, online series can be booked as a workshop; or sessions 1 & 2 can be booked individually.

Sessions 1 and 2 will be delivered in a seminar format. A recording will be disseminated post-event for your future reference.

Session 3, ‘Getting the job’, is a small group workshop and will have a limited capacity.  It will focus on CV development and interview skills and individuals will be provided with personalised feedback. It is mandatory for participants registering for Session 3 to provide their full CV for group discussion and feedback from facilitators.
