This series of talks is aimed at Exeter’s Management, MBA and FAFM alumni community - exploring trends that shape the world in which we live, lead and learn. The virtual platform gives us the opportunity to connect to thought provoking ideas and reconnect to friends and colleagues from across the world.

We invite you to join us for an exciting session led by Sarah Ellis, Co-founder of Amazing If and co-author of The Squiggly Career, who will discuss the 5 skills for success. Dr Claire Dinan, Jackie Bagnall and Dr Jane Shen will also be sharing updates from the University, and there will be an opportunity to connect with your peers during a breakout session.

The 5 Skills to Succeed
Careers today are characterised by change, ambiguity and possibility. A one size fits all successful career has disappeared and our jobs now give us the opportunity to learn, explore and experiment.

This is a fast paced and action focused introduction to squiggly careers: what they are, why they matter and, most importantly, the actions you can take to kick-start your self-development and learning.
