Taking control of your own creative career is the secret to professional fulfillment. The key is in: first identifying where you want to go and then setting a manageable – and enjoyable – plan to get there.

Likewise, for People Managers, Business Owners, HR and Learning & Development professionals who work with creatives, the goal is to help the creative individual paint a picture of what they want to achieve and then identify the optimum supports to help them get there.

All design professionals navigating their careers will need to demonstrate continuous improvement in skills and knowledge and be able to make significant contributions to their teams and organisations. And – while designers primarily serve customers and businesses, they also have a unique and important opportunity to influence and elevate the role of design and the evolution of the design industry across Ireland.

Start 2023 off with a great first step at this 90-minute webinar with Executive Coach Jeannette Naughton and Adam de Eyto, Head of Design at LSAD, Technological University of the Shannon (TUS), to discuss how to drive, shape and gain fulfillment in creative careers, taking place online (via Zoom) on Friday, January 20th at 10am.

As a New Year’s gift, Design Skillnet is delighted to offer this superb webinar free of charge.

This talk is ideal for all creative professionals seeking a fulfilling and exciting career, who are prepared to take (gentle) steps to design their own creative future. It is also ideal for managers, business owners, HR and L&D working with creative professionals.

This webinar is brought to you in conjunction with Visit FLOW, the interactive skills & career development tool designed by the IDI and Design Skillnet, specifically for designers and their employers or collaborators or business partners, to engage and plan career development, together.

Join Jeannette and Adam de Eyto on Friday, January 20th from 10am to 11.30am.
