The Copthorne Hotel from 10.30-12.30
Refreshments will be provided
Led by Andrea Pearce (The Create Network)
Andrea Pearce is an experienced Business Psychologist who has worked with many people who want to find work, or change careers. She is delivering a series of 2 hour workshops for PESGB to inspire and motivate through the current downturn, covering helpful areas such as influencing mindset and self-belief; recognising personal values and transferrable skills; developing networks and accessing/influencing the unseen job market; empowering to tell and sell influential stories, including through social media; making an impact at interviews; and keeping motivated through set-backs.
Each workshop covers one or two of these areas, using a mixture of individual, pair and group activities to keep things interesting and fun. Even more importantly will be the opportunity to get to know each other better, networking and building a stronger support group. All the activities and tools are proven to work, both through research studies, and more meaningfully, people who use these tools go on to find work or more fulfilling careers. You will be challenged to think differently, will go away with new tools and ways of thinking to try out, and will also have fun!
All the workshops will build on the previous ones, but can also be attended as stand-alone sessions.
TELL YOUR STORY
“Let perseverance be your engine and hope your fuel” – don’t be alone through these tough times – come along and connect with other people, share experiences and ideas towards getting back into work, build back up your self-esteem and motivation. Andrea will be leading discussions and activities around creating a positive ‘now’; recognising and framing transferrable skills; influencing through more than just your CV; and building your own support team.
In addition to this, the Job Centre will be coming to do a talk about the Transition Fund for training which is up to £4,000 for work related training.
