What we will cover

Hustling // Say YES to opportunities and Hustle like there is no tomorrow. 

generationYOU will kick off with an informal chat with a massive local legend. This is a great opportunity to get behind the scenes with someone who is not only successful in their field but who wants to help you to hustle in the same way, to reach your goals!

Networking // Turn strangers into connections & friends into raving fans

Whilst there is an art to networking, the challenge is in maintaining and growing relationships that matter. Irrespective of whether you are a student, graduate, first jobber or school leaver, being able to leverage your connections is a skill that will benefit you for life.

Put yourself forward // Develop leadership skills for impact

We’ll take a hands-on approach to leadership, from determining the different types of leaders and working styles, traits of successful leaders, dissecting examples of leadership in the field, and building a plan to help strengthen your leaderships skills and build confidence.

Unlocking your emotional intelligence // A key enterprise skill 

EQ is a necessary skill we need to build over time, particularly as it is one of the top 10 in-demand job skills. It provides us with an opportunity to elevate certain innate skills which not only help us manage our own emotions but those of others.

Personal Branding // Figure out who you are and how to tell the world

Understand the difference between a product and personal brand; identify your values, strengths and traits; create an action plan and maintain your brand over time. Learn how to use strategy, consistency and planning to build YOUR legacy.

Defining a Career // Integrate work into your extraordinary life

We spend our school years and early 20s striving to build foundations for our ‘ideal job’ – yet most of us are unsure of what we actually want to do with our lives. This session will help us ask some tough questions – around what a career really is.

The big career panel // All your recruitment and career questions answered

In our final session, we will run a career Q&A session with a super panel of local legends. They will briefly talk about their experiences in the workplace and be available to answer any questions you may have on applying for jobs, starting your first job, career management, work-life balance and anything else you can think of!
