Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back

If after completing the workshop you're still feeling totally lost about what you want from your career, we will personally meet with you to help you figure out exactly what to do differently.

Is this workshop right for me?

We've designed the Education Career Design workshop to help you figure out exactly what you want next from your career and develop a plan to get there, regardless of your age, background, or role.

The workshop will be hugely valuable to you if you fit any of the following criteria:

  • You feel stuck in an unsatisfying job and you're not sure what to do next

  • You like your work right now but want to figure out what else is out there

  • You have several options for what you could do next, but need to narrow them down

The workshop will NOT be a good fit for you if:

  • You already know exactly what you want and just need help landing a job ASAP

  • You want one-on-one expert coaching

  • You want the answers handed to you and aren't willing to put in the hard work

What is your refund policy?

Registration is fully refundable up until seven days before the workshop. Within a week of the workshop, we are unable to offer refunds.

Still not sure if this workshop is right for you? Let's talk about it! Email us
