Canberra Business News, 1 December 2014 - Have you gone full circle or are you going full circles with your career?
When times are good, people will spend on fitness coaches, even lifestyle coaches like dietitians, but rarely do people think ahead about a career coach to keep their professional lives on track.
Vanessa Vanderhoek has hit the ground sprinting with her new business, Career Inside Track in which she's helping people work the 'full circle' of their career life.
Press the Point, 19 November 2014 - Brand Yourself and Brand for Life
Having a personal brand is important to all of us, not just big corporations with those big budgets to match. That’s the key message, Vanessa Vanderhoek told attendees at her recent Very Best Dressed workshop focused on first impressions, held at the Duxton in Canberra.
A variety of Canberra’s executives from CEOs, corporate managers, consultants and public servants came along to get tips on how to make a lasting first impression in their business and careers.
"Proudly supported by local business, the highlight of the night was raising 800 high quality pre-loved work outfits for donation to Comms@Work, a local charity which helps the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Canberra get back into the workforce," said Vanessa.
