    We have created a Community of Practice with weekly activities to keep you and your Mentor engaged throughout the process and connect with the greater cohort through shared learning and reflective practice.

    What will be covered in the workshop:

    • Introduction to the program
    • What to expect
    • Role of Mentee
    • Goals, Vision & Aspiration
    • Complete a Business Model Canvas

    After completion of the workshop, there will be moments to come together and connect as well as share your stories and journey with a concluding breakfast event.

    Note: you cannot take part in the program unless you complete this workshop.  Once booked and paid an email will be sent to you with a link to complete an Application Questionnaire.

    See further details of program outline and commitment here.

      Shameless Self Promotion


    Hugh Kearns last year presented the "The Imposter Syndrome" at our sold out WiT event. This year he is back for a follow up seminar on effective measures to promote yourself!


    Just because you work hard does not mean that you will attain awards.  Rather than waiting for it to happen, it is important to have a strategy to promote yourself and "put yourself out there".  Develop your 1 minute pitch and present yourself effectively for awards, grants and promotions.

    This workshop will look at:

    • Asking for what you want
    • Why waiting isn’t enough
    • Using convincing language
    • Self promotion
    • Networking, mentoring and collaborating
    • Putting yourself in the spotlight
    • Media and other methods to communicate
    Your Presenter:


    Hugh Kearns from Thinkwell is recognised internationally as a public speaker, educator and researcher. He regularly lectures at universities across the world and has recently returned from lecture tours of the UK and the US which included lectures at Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Berkeley and Stanford.


    His areas of expertise include self-management, positive psychology, work-life balance, learning and creativity. He draws on over twenty five years of experience as a leading training and development professional within the corporate, financial, education and health sectors in Ireland, Scotland, North America, New Zealand and Australia. He has coached individuals, teams and executives in a wide range of organisations in the public and private sectors.


    Hugh lectures and researches at Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia. He is widely recognised for his ability to take the latest research in psychology and education and apply it to high-performing people and groups. As a co-author with Maria Gardiner, he has published ten books which are in high demand both in Australia and internationally.


    How to get there - Closest parking is in P10 or around the ring road at Sir William MacGregor Drive, diagonally opposite Wordsmiths café
