Following last year's massively successful webinar series,  'Positive Relationships' with Joanna Gaudoin, we would be delighted if you could join us for this in person book event.

Joanna will be exploring the topic of 'why solving work challenges starts with you and what to consider' in addition to discussing her book in general and why it is a must-read for people wanting to navigate their daily working lives more effectively and progress their career. 
Joanna will also be answering your questions so please feel free to submit any before hand.

About the book:

Being proficient in your profession alone is insufficient, you need to develop other capabilities related to how you communicate yourself, engage with others and deal with every professional scenario effectively and confidently. 

This book will help you master these skills to successfully navigate professional life, progress and have greater career satisfaction. It’s for middle to senior level people, predominantly in professional and financial services who have either hit a challenge or stumbling block (maybe you know what or why, or maybe you don’t) related to day-to-day working or your career progression and/or for those who are simply keen to do all they can to progress their careers.

Some people get promoted through technical ability and then struggle as the responsibilities in their new role differ, or they can’t be promoted until they work on their non-technical skills such as managing others, business development and building strategic relationships.

This book reveals why these skills matter, and provides practical guidance on how to put them into practice. It will help you move forward from where you are to be more fulfilled and successful at work.

You can purchase this book from any bookshop, Amazon or directly from Joanna, if you’d like a signed copy. The book will also be available for purchase on the night.

About Joanna:

Joanna Gaudoin helps bright, knowledgeable people with great technical skills and experience improve their non-technical skills so they can progress their careers and boost their firm's performance. She runs Inside Out Image.

During her former corporate career in marketing and consultancy, Joanna realised that being successful involved skills that weren’t being developed or talked about.

These ‘other’ professional skills involve knowing how to manage your own Personal Impact and how to effectively build relationships, both internally and externally. 

She has run her business for over a decade and has worked with thousands of people, both individually and in group settings.
