Defining Your Second Career

27th November 2019

The issues and opportunities faced by people seeking job or career change mid-career are well known and widely documented.  They were actively confronted in our inaugural one day conference, Defining Your Second Career.

This oversubscribed event was sponsored and hosted by pan-European institutional investor Patron Capital Partners, and Managing Director Keith Breslauer delivered a lively keynote address to a packed room of delegates, focusing on overcoming obstacles and powering through.  For the remainder of this packed conference, delegates selected from a range of sessions from the factual and the informative to the motivational and inspirational.

One such delegate was IT Director Jonathan Lipton.  He stated: “The guest speakers were fantastic and the venue impressive.  This was a great source of inspiration and practical advice for me and everyone else at an “inflection point” in their careers and lives.”

Simon Rickman, CEO of Peak Performance and one of the expert presenters commented: “I presented on the 7 habits of highly effective job seekers.  I was so impressed with the quality of the delegates and their enthusiasm to engage and develop.”

Said Debbie Sheldon, CEO of Work Avenue: “This event was a wonderful opportunity for some of our talented and experienced clients to come together to be inspired, network and hopefully also develop some new skills for the future.  As an organisation which works so hard to help people into employment, it was great to see so many networks and relationships being forged.  Work Avenue is here to help people into work. We hope we helped a few people with that today.  It really bodes well for the future.”
