Take Control Of Your Career In 2019

by Davina Ripton


On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you love your job? 

If you want to feel more positive at work, improve your performance in your current role, apply for a new job, or even change career completely, then this workshop will be a perfect kick-start for your 2019 goals.

The world of work is changing all around us and job security is a thing of the past. So how do you take control of your career and find work that makes you truly happy?

This is an interactive workshop where you’ll start building your own unique career canvass and learn more about:

  • your values, strengths and motivators

  • what you need to feel happy, motivated and perform at your best at work

  • setting career goals for 2019 

  • the things that are holding you back and how to overcome them

  • how to use the canvas to have better conversations with your line manager and team

  • using the canvas to find your next job and shine in your interview 

About Davina

Davina is a change manager and coach. She has 20 years experience working with a range of different businesses and two years ago set up her own consultancy, Change Ready

She works with businesses to help plan and successfully deliver changes, for example new technology, process improvements, product launches, restructures and redundancies. 

She’s a firm believer that people will make (or break) every change a business tries to implement and is passionate about delivering change in a positive and respectful way, working with leaders to improve staff engagement and business outcomes. 

Whilst she can’t promise to rewire your brain to enjoy change, she can help you understand why change is difficult and how to navigate your way through the challenges it brings.

As part of her leadership and performance coaching work, Davina helps clients improve their skills, develop their careers and adapt to changes at work. 

In her free time, she loves to go trail running (especially in the Peak District), grow veg, visit new places and plan mini-adventures.
