Re-inventing yourself: Frightening, exciting or both?

02/10/2021 @ 13:00 - 14:00 EST

About the Event:

For many in the fields of compliance, security and/or risk, there may be no specific career path to lead to new and exciting careers.

Do any of these scenarios resonate with you:

Do you find yourself in a new role?

Have you been asked to take on a new role, or an additional role?

Are you shocked to find yourself in an area that is completely new to you?

Were you once an “expert” and now you are thrown into something where you have no experience?

Are you an early career employee without much experience surrounded by professionals with knowledge and expertise?

Perhaps you are more senior or more junior than everyone else on the team?

Finally, maybe you are thinking about starting a consultancy of your own.

Listen to Amee Sandhu share her experience about her various career shifts and the strategies that worked for her, and some that did not! She will share with you her strategies that worked for her to excel in an area that is new to you, obstacles to watch out for (Including ones you create for yourself), and how to recover from mistakes or getting off on the wrong foot.
