Ideas to Action

February 27 @ 09:30 - 13:00

A series of three workshops supporting you to take action, whether that’s pitching an idea to your boss, trying something new or bringing an idea to life. Learn to sashay past your inner critic and other common obstacles; find your voice and feel comfortable promoting yourself online; and understand burnout and how to avoid it as you work towards sustainable success.

This series is for anyone who wants to build confidence, self understanding, and skills to step into leadership and act on their ideas. You might work for a business, small charity, or in the public sector, be freelance or interested in working for yourself – it doesn’t matter, everyone is a leader and this series will help you step forward.
