How to Design the Career You Love

Presented by

About this talk

We all want to say “I love my job!” but it’s not a magic wish. Job satisfaction is something you have to design into your daily life, from your work choices to your profile to your networks. This episode we sit down for a cup and conversation with Mia Sherman from the popular Escape the City (https://www.escapethecity.org/) job transformation coaching in London and New York, and two women who have successfully redesigned happiness at work. This episode we'll learn the stories and ask questions of two fabulous female entrepreneurs: Vix Anderton, talking about her journey from an Royal Air Force intelligence officer to building a portfolio career and her own company The Practical Balance (thepracticalbalance.com), a platform to promote the wellbeing and mental health of founders; and Luzana Costa, talking about her purposeful pivot from the oil and gas industry to working with a couple of social enterprises in Angola and a crowdfunding company for social enterprises here in London, and working full time with tech startups -- plus check out her inspiring blog: A Woman about the World (https://medium.com/woman-about-the-world) Both women are heavily dedicated to empowering diversity. Get ready to ask your own questions and learn from those that have been there, done that in designing careers they truly love! Women and men alike are welcome to listen in (live or sign up now for link to recording later) to learn and ask our WIT women at work experts for advice!

There's something so powerful about asking the right questions of the right people. FYI is about the point where tech and culture collide, hopefully for the better. These aren't droll interviews, grab a cuppa and join the conversation as we connect with those who've stumbled into an area of influence and are trying to use it to lift up more people and make a difference in the way we work and the way we tech.
