What happens when you’ve realized it’s time for a change? For many of us, it can be as simple as a new look, a new restaurant, or a trip out of town. But what about when it’s your career and livelihood that needs to be revamped? This can happen for any number of reasons, but the challenges and questions remain the same – what’s next and how do I get there?

About the Instructors
Ray Jackson
Owner,
CareerBloom Consulting

Turned down twice for promotions in his own department, Ray found himself at a career crossroad. Feeling shut out and ignored, he disengaged at work and floundered. Since then, he has gone on to receive two promotions in 3.5 years into job roles that did not exist before. Furthermore, as a manager, Ray has created advancement opportunities for team members, and promoted them into it.

These experiences coupled with 15 years working in talent management has enabled him to successfully run multiple leadership development programs for leaders at various levels. One program Ray led for multiple years had a 71% promotion rate of program graduates into leadership roles.
