The future of work is unpredictable, and navigating this disruption effectively matters to everyone in every industry, inlcuding employees, entrepreneurs, and managers.

This course will show you how to take your experiences, extract what you've learnt from them and present them in a way that clearly communicates your potential and enables you to apply them in different contexts - such as being employed within organisations or running your own business.
