This one is popular amongst our final year students!
Your Network is Your Net Worth

Figuring Out Your Future
Taking students on a journey to find themselves, not just the person that has spent the last 20 years in education. It will focus on helping students look for the things they are good at and do less of the things that they hate. We also help answer the age old question of 'what do I do with my life?' and how to approach different career options students have, knowing which is the right fit for them without feeling overwhelmed.
I think this was the longest I have been able to stay engaged on a Zoom call recently. That definitely says something about how brilliant and accessible this workshop was!
