Career Change Advisor

Career Change can be scary – especially when it is forced on you through an unexpected layoff or event such as the Covid19 pandemic, or personal life changes.  As a consultant for the past 20 years, I have changed roles, sectors, jobs/clients and countries many times.  I help clients through the job change process to enable them to find more fulfilling work, and live the life they truly want for themselves.

Together we review where you are at now, where you want to be and how to get there.  My tools and shortcuts can help you find the new role that you are looking for.  We will build a sensible plan that you can action now to create the new career and life you desire, while making sure your current needs are met as you work through your transition.

For those looking to live and work overseas, you can learn more about my expatriate mentoring at Know Your World.

I also have a large network of specialized and certified professionals that I can refer to for specific goals, issues and situations. My network includes recruiters, lawyers, entrepreneurs, financial advisors, immigration attorneys, technology and insurance professionals, etc., who can also help you achieve success.
