Farah will share her personal experience of transitioning from academia to consultant, and what academic skills were useful in her new role, which will hopefully make the career shift less daunting to those about to make the same change. This is also a chance to reminisce for those who made the change many years ago.
Hailey will then share invaluable insights, lessons, and challenges faced throughout her 18 years in the industry from graduate to principal to contaminated land auditor.
Hailey and Farah will share their stories with candour, vulnerability and relatability, making this webinar a must-see for all those striving to progress in their career and meet their full potential.
