Bringing career thoughts and ideas to life!

Key Speaker

Are you looking for a key speaker to raise aspirations, inspire, motivate, build confidence and help your students identify their career potential?

I work with forward thinking schools, colleges, universities and organisations working with young people to help their students understand and connect with the world of work. I’m passionate about ensuring students are self-aware and market ready with the potential to excel at work, take action and build their dream career.

As a speaker and QCG qualified Career Advisor I provide objective, impartial and relevant careers information, advice and guidance (CIAG) to students through a variety of engaging careers talks. I’m happy to deliver talks to groups of students from small group sessions through to large presentations, careers open days or specific careers events.

Some of the workshop topics I cover include:

  • Career values and motivation
  • Career exploration
  • Assembly, lecture or Year Talk across a range of different career topics 
  • What employers want – identifying and developing transferable skills
  • The importance of personal branding and marketing yourself
  • How to use social media – and the mistakes to avoid!
  • Creating your winning CV
  • Discovering fantastic successful interview techniques
  • Presentation skills
  • Finding part-time work or an internship
  • Starting out in your new job – creating a great first impression 
  • Many more career development topics tailored to your students’ needs…just ask! 

There is much more to careers learning and development than how to write a CV and looking for a job! Working with me as a careers speaker you can:

Engage your students on a variety of career development topics.

Ensure your students look to the future highlighting to them how the skills and knowledge they are acquiring every day are relevant to the real world of work.

Ensure your students become well rounded individuals and employees, employers or entrepreneurs of the future.
