A huge thank you to all that attended our first Transformation event of 2018, it was wonderful to see so many familiar faces!
I hope you all found it as inspiring as we did here at Morgan McKinley.
A special thanks to our guest speaker Michelle Gibbings, Managing Director – Change Meridian for her insightful presentation which provided utilisable tools, insightful anecdotes and tasks for personal growth.
Michelle started the session by unveiling some shocking facts about the future of our future workforce. Discussing Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Automation. Michelle coerced us to glimpse into the face of digital disruption, encouraging us to future proof our careers commenting “If you’re going to learn a new skill, make sure it’s in an area that’s growing - not shrinking”.
Michelle went on to talk about her career “For me, my career was always an adventure”. Michelle gave anecdotal insight into her own journey from the Corporate world into now running her own business (Change Meridian). Which led to Michelle explaining that when making decisions on which direction to take your career in ‘often the best career moves you make will be to the left or to the right’ and not always up.
Michelle gave attendees resourceful links to tools, templates, articles and ted talks which she has found useful for both herself and delegates of her career coaching course. Attendees on the night also walked away with a copy of Michelle’s new book Career Leap and an exclusive offer for her 12 week online Career course which fleshes out some of the content touched on in her presentation.
The Transformation Professionals that attended the event all walked away with different takeaways from the night. I came away with my Evernote (thanks Michelle) packed with advice and tasks to implement into my daily regime. One that resonated, and I will share, is the notion of doing a Career Health Check. Michelle pointed out that we frequently do health checks but why not do a Career check every year and give your Career a once over?
We are fortunate to have Michelle coming back to our offices on 7th June for an exclusive event offered to Morgan McKinley contractor network. If you are interested in attending please get in touch to avoid disappointment.
