In their own words, why the Career in Your Suitcase Way program

 was worth their time and effort:

“The Career in Your Suitcase Way Program was a great and powerful tool for my career transition.

My husband and I talked a lot about the process, and he was also delighted to see the enthusiasm and the change in attitude towards the search for a new beginning. When the journey with the group was finished, I was sure it was more than a deep dive into my inner self, it was a great investment in my future! ” Karen

Project Manager, Danone

“I started the Career in Your Suitcase Way program very unsure about what to do next. [Now] I feel in control and although everything is mostly uncertain, I am ok with facing uncertainty as I have recognised what is most important to me, what is nice to have and that I have control about what happens to me next regardless of location etc.

…my confidence in myself and my skills has increased since I started the course. The weight of the world is no longer weighing me down! Deborah

Accompanying Partner; Previous Business Controls Risk and Compliance Manager, Telefónica UK Limited

I was able to clear away the many clouds blocking my vision to what I wanted out of my career. I have focus, and project management tools to help me get what I want out of my career.” Program Participant
