Session: Do What Matters - The Purposeful Pivot
We are at a time of incredible social, economic and environmental change. While we are progressing slowly to a net zero future, the tech sector is booming with AI tools that can help, or hinder progress. This talk covers the considerations you need to make in choosing a career, based on purpose, ethics, and your individual strengths.
I wrote the book Do what matters, the purpose driven career transition guide provides the context and arguments for what’s important, and then provides a step by step approach, unique to everyone who takes the journey, to find their own path to purpose, truth and action.
I want to inspire net-positive action by presenting different ideas, scientific truths, and critical inflection points from your own life. My intentions are to help you and your teams deliver the changes the world needs.
This talk covers:
The impetus for change - The ESG Considerations impacting our lives and our organisations
Self Mastery and Purpose
The 9 Steps to Career Transition Success
Self and Society - What Integration means
Planning for success
- A blueprint on how to evaluate your next career move, considering ESG, and net positive impact.
