The saying goes “you can’t give from an empty vessel” – yet as career driven women that is exactly what most of us end up doing at some point. Especially in the building and fire compliance sector where there are constant changes, hard issues and never-ending workloads, like treadmills that won’t turn off!

Step back - Connect - Learn - Plan

Learn new skills, hear tips and be encouraged by some industry leaders and subject matter experts. Network and connect with other women to share ideas, encouragement and inspiration. Create your own personal action plan for that next step in your career.
