Inaugural Healthcare Career Development Unconference

Healthcare career development is the number one topic our audience wants from us, and we aim to deliver in a fun, 'educating' venue and format. Listen to 18 speakers in five-minute mini talks, in groups of three ('triads') about a variety of topics: early, mid- and late pre-retirement career development, entrepreneurship, social media and personal brand development and CV/resume/interviewing/negotiating. Space is limited for this event, and it will be a hands-on workshop. Join us and take your career to the next level in healthcare and the life sciences.
