Whether you’re looking to empower your people to take ownership of their own careers or attract and retain the best talent in your industry, then Gillian Fox’s keynote Potent People and Careers is the perfect launchpad for initiating conversations and generating action around career development and future potential in your organisation.

Relevant to both men and women alike, this one-hour presentation provides an inspirational ‘how-to guide’ on how people can take individual responsibility for and direct their own career advancement in a thoughtful, meaningful, and strategically aligned way.

This interactive keynote provides ideas and tools to promote individual reflection on where they might be today, where they would like to be in the future and suggested pathways in which success can be achieved. It is a practical and inspiring guide for establishing the groundwork to facilitate open, honest and productive conversations around career progression.



  • Building the ‘right’ networks and attracting sponsors
  • Demonstrating your value and making it more visible
  • Developing career courage
  • Building the reputation that will support your career aspirations
  • Staying relevant and contemporary in the current business environment



It is essential that your people feel there is a genuine opportunity to achieve career progression, whilst also recognising that they have an active role to play in their own success. Potent People and Careers is a perfect gateway for introducing this concept to your teams and kickstarting those conversations!


Gillian was fantastic – the content was sharp and on point, the delivery was engaging and there were actionable tips which our team members could take away and start implementing immediately. Her keynote Potent People and Careers was full of valuable career insights for our people at SBS. She reminded us that we are the champions of our own careers and to focus on building the kind of professional and personal reputation we envisage for ourselves. Following her keynote, staff provided us with feedback which said it couldn’t have come at a better time for them and that it had provided them with a renewed energy and focus around their own career. We would highly recommend Gillian to speak to any organisation looking to inspire empowerment, ownership and engagement around career development. Thanks Gillian!
