Last chance to register for Ascend career development day in Brisbane – come along and network, reflect on your achievments for 2010 and refocus your goals for the year ahead

When was the last time you spend a day focused just on you and what you want to achieve from work and life? If you’re in Brisbane next Wednesday 1st December, I’d love to see you at the Ascend career development day where you’ll have the chance to do just that.  Here’s what one of our recent participants had to say about how much she loved the program:

“I was feeling really low and unenthused about work and life in general after coming back from a trip overseas, but the last Ascend day in Adelaide really turned me around to be more positive, energetic and enthusiastic.  So a BIG THANKS to sphinxx.”

This program is outstanding value at only $345 for a full day of development including presentations and workshops on:

  • Are you sabotaging your career success?, with Jen Dalitz the founder and SheEO of sphinxx.  Jen will cover the common traits of successful women in business and the behaviours and relationships you need to develop at work that will set you up for career success.
  • How unconscious bias can affect your career advancement and how you can conquer it, with Dr Margaret Byrne, Principal Consultant with UGM Consulting.  Margaret is an expert in the differences in communication styles between men and women and the impact this can have on career advancement.
  • Take the Lead – with Kathy Hirschfeld, non executive director, leader and change agent. Kathy previously held senior executive roles at New Zealand Refining Company and BP Refining and left BP this year to pursue a career as a professional director.  She will share some of the lessons learned and provide her perspectives on planning and prioritizing for your career success.


  • Planning Your Next Career Move – an interactive workshop with Denise Aldous and Jenny Morawska, two of Australia’s leading women who will share their secrets on Changing Tack and Transcending the Boundaries to give you the tips and strategies to map out your next career move.

Full details on the program for each city are available on the sphinxx events page – where you can also register online.  Hope to see you there!

Check this out, I'm in awe. My friend Ronni Kahn is at it again, disrupting the food supply chain, offering food security to the vulnerable. I've shared before about OzHarvest. When I first met Ronni ten years ago I knew she was special, but what she has achieved and continues to achieve truly blows my mind. She cares so much about the people that OzHarvest serves, and every person in her life, and gives her everything to make sure that no person needs to go hungry. The international expansion of OzHarvest is awesome, and this "take what you need" supermarket in Sydney is just brilliance. Repurposing and rehoming surplus food, keeping it out of landfill so that we all benefit and business overheads are lowered. Win. Win. Win. Love it! ... See MoreSee Less
