About this event

I aspired at an early age to a career in scientific research in order to make peoples’ lives better but I did not anticipate the path my career would follow. In this talk I will draw on my experience to highlight points you might consider as you set off and move through your career journeys:

    • Recognising significant moments in your career
    • What if things go wrong?
    • Leadership and teams
