Whether you’ve lost your job, are at risk of redundancy or simply concerned your career might stagnate in an increasingly flat economy, Future Proof is the 2020 road map you need.

Future Proof is a nine-part webinar series that educates, informs and upskills women who want to take the next step in their careers but aren’t quite sure how to where to begin.

Combining inspirational speeches, step-by- step guides, engaging conversations and practical workshops, Future Proof meets women where they’re at now.

Future Proof provides tangible skills and knowledge for women who are determined to make their careers fulfilling, successful and recession-proof. Please note that these sessions will not be recorded to watch back later. You must be in attendance.


RECESSION: What the evolving economic climate means for women. 

23 OCTOBER AT 12:00PM: Angela Jackson is a leading public sector and health economist, who has advised governments at the highest levels and negotiated with toddlers while crouched very low to the ground.
