Future pro-manchester

As we begin the New Year, many of us reflect on our personal and professional development and set our goals for the year.  With the appraisal being a key point in the year for assessing progress, this session will explore how you can make the most of that conversation and how to keep track of your progress, year-round.

This event will bring together different speakers to bring a range of insights. They will share their experience and expertise from the perspective of HR, business ownership and psychology. We aim for everyone to leave the event feeling inspired and energised to focus on their career development in 2019.
