How can attending our workshop help you?
"The workshop really helped me clarify my thoughts and gave me the confidence to take action. The world of IT was initially interesting, but I soon found that I didn’t feel challenged enough. I also wanted a career where I thought I could have more creative freedom and my time at work was valued. My only regret is that I didn’t change career as soon as I realised that I needed a change."
IT Manager to Film Production
"The workshop helped me explore why I was so unhappy in my previous career and what I could do to put it right. The stressful nature of my old career meant that I could never switch off and it was difficult to develop healthy work relationships. In my new career, I have time to plan, reflect and deliver. I have a fantastic team and I thoroughly enjoy my work."
Health to Law
"I was unhappy with the management team of my old company; they seemed to make very strange decisions. As a leader of my own company, I am determined to listen to my staff and to make decisions to help grow the business. One of the best things I have ever done is attend a career change workshop."
Security to Own Business
"I didn’t know what to expect when I booked… a friend of mine had gone on the workshop and as it really helped him, he encouraged me to book. I was confused and unsure about my future but by the end of the workshop I gained the confidence and the momentum to get on and make changes in my life."
Architecture to Own Patisserie Business
"The workshop made me think deeply about my work and what was important to me. If I hadn’t gone on the workshop I think I would have still been working in my old job. I was encouraged to explore areas of work that I enjoyed and put together a plan. This helped me a great deal as I knew what the next steps would be to start my own business."
Property to Own Business
"I needed a wake up call and working with Career Switch gave me the confidence to make a change. I now have an improved work/life balance that means I have got my evenings back. I now have greater engagement with my work; I actually look forward to Mondays! I have recommended a few of friends to attend the workshop and they all found it useful."
