Testimonials

"Thank you for the awesome program. It helped me realize other mums have the same challenges, helped me lift the constraints I have been placing on myself & gave me tools to make it happen such as using positive language when negotiating flexibility, getting mentors, taking action and networking. Thanks for the kick start"
Kristie Holmes | Human Resources | Westpac/BT


“Thanks for the Career after Kids Seminar. It was a fantastic day, the presenters were so professional, yet dwn to earth and I really felt I could open up about some of the issues I was facing. It was great to leave knowing that I can have greater confidence in my ability as a mum and a professional to get things working really well and that I can go after what I really want.”
Megan Fox | NSW Team Co-ordinator | PeopleBank


“The seminar was really interesting and very helpful, so thank you. The interview went really well ( even used a few tips from the seminar) and I got the job. No start date as yet but they have agreed to my requested hours! So again thank you, I would not have been so confident asking for them without the seminar.”
Kirsty Gyles | Veterinarian
