Building a Portfolio Career

Transitioning from being an Executive to an Advisory Role

This is a time of change for us all. In fact, it’s a great time to re-think the status quo and examine where you are going career-wise.

For many, it is about a transition from a full-time executive role to building a portfolio career where you can apply the skills and intelligence gained over years of great work.

However, Portfolio Careers are not for everyone. They can be hard work. The uncertainty can be stressful and juggling different roles is demanding. However, the capacity to build your own mixture of interesting work is extremely rewarding and can provide you with more flexibility in your daily life.

Want to know more about the do’s and don’ts of embarking on a new way of working? Then please join us as we explore what it takes to shift to a portfolio career. This is webinar is designed to help those considering their ‘what’s next’.
