WiSE UP Workshop Series 2015

WISE UP 2015

CamAWiSE Workshop Series: Skills for success in the workplace
Following on from our highly successful WISE UP workshop series in 2012-2013, WISE UP 2015 will focus on some of the softer skills we all need to develop in order to succeed at work. Job-related expertise is essential in any career, STEM-related or otherwise. However, over the last twenty to thirty years, an understanding has grown that perhaps soft skills may ultimately be more important in determining levels of success. Those who attended the last WISE UP series told us they valued being part of a group, meeting the same group of people each time.

Booking for this event has now closed.  If you have any queries, or you would like to be added to a waiting/cancellation list for the workshops, please email Gayle
