How to realise both your professional and personal dreams
Professional fulfilment is more than just what can be achieved at your desk. Personal dreams and ambitions that run in parallel to and after your core career can be equally rewarding and provide invaluable complementary skills. But it can be hard to align the two.
The Haberman Ilett Women’s Network invites you to be inspired by three women who have enjoyed successes both within their chosen profession and in their interests alongside it. Our speakers will share their stories of the attitudes and actions that have motivated and empowered them, after which we hope you will join the discussion to discover what you can do to fulfil all your ambitions too.
Date: Tuesday 3 October 2017
Time: 6.30pm for 7pm
Venue: Haberman Ilett, City Tower, 40 Basinghall Street, London EC2V 5DE
