Starting out in the advertising, marketing or media industry can be tough. To eventually move up to leadership positions, you have to invest time into your career, as well as training and mentoring.
B&T Bootcamp is coming up fast, and is a great place to start propelling your career with mentoring and masterclasses galore.
You’ll learn from real industry professionals with real success stories – and attendees will leave with newly-developed self-awareness and mindsets after taking inspiration from the educational masterclass speakers and experienced mentors.
The event will combine the best parts of the Women in Media Forum and Towards 2030 so that you’ll walk away better, smarter and ready to be more successful than ever. Sound good?
Well, the event is only weeks away, so grab tickets here while they last.
In the meantime, we thought we’d provide you with three killer tips to get you ready for Bootcamp – and the rest of your career.
Work on your emotional skills
Did you know that emotional skills can be more useful in business than functional, widely taught skills?
Most businesses invest heavily in training their staff in the functional aspects of their job but teaching skills relating to emotions like purpose, negotiation and resilience are often neglected. And it’s these skills that retain and win business.
At B&T‘ Bootcamp, attendees will learn about emotional skills and how to use them for their careers, through a combination of speed networking, group mentoring and masterclasses.
Find someone to mentor you
Believe it or not, a good mentor can make a career – as long as you pick the right one.
A mentor should be someone you trust, someone who knows your strengths and weaknesses and someone who can provide career advice as well as both professional and personal development advice.
But where can you find a mentor as an adult? At industry events. Bootcamp will see you speed-networking like a pro – and is the perfect place to meet a mentor. The event will take place in late March, leaving you plenty of time to brush up on your elevator pitch.
Figure out what you like about your job
If you don’t know what you like about your job, how are you supposed to excel at it?
Many people just go into auto pilot during the length of their careers, and wonder why they may not be completely satisfied and why they don’t enjoy their work. Taking the time to articulate and understand your why and values can be an experience that can transform your career and how you view it.
Kate Chaffer is the Director of Culture Zone and in her masterclass on purpose and values, you will have the opportunity to articulate your why, what is really important to you and use that to guide your career choices in a fulfilling, pro active and empowering way.
