Tech Talent Academy - The 'Change From Within' Series - Personal Development

Tech Talent Academy's

'Change From Within' Series

Giving you tools to help you be more successful in every area of your life.

The seminars will be held at Unruly Media's Clubhouse and led by John Purkiss, co-author of Brand You (published by Pearson) and Change from Within (coming soon).




The 'Change From Within' Series

Have you ever wondered why some people are really successful and others are not? Intelligence and hard work are only part of the story. They aren't enough on their own. It turns out that if we work on ourselves, then our health, careers, relationships and finances all change for the better.




In this first seminar, John will show you:


1. How to be present

This reduces stress. It also helps you to read people and situations, have ideas out of the blue and become more charismatic. It is the principle that underlies mindfulness and other forms of meditation. Being present will help you to get the right job, win new business and/or raise money.

2. How to discover your shadow.

Your shadow contains aspects of yourself which you have suppressed. This can hold you back. John will help you to discover your shadow, so you can embrace it and fulfill your potential. It will make you more successful at work, and more attractive to others.





John has been a keen student of personal development for 20 years. He now runs the board practice at Veni Partners, where he recruits CEOs, CFOs, chair(wo)men, etc. He also invests in high-growth companies. John studied economics at Cambridge and has an MBA from INSEAD.
