Empower Yourself: Professional Workshop

A 2-day development workshop for professionals in Advertising & Communications Design

Calling all Professionals in Advertising & Communications Design!

Do you...

  • Feel a gap between your professional aspirations and daily reality?
  • Want to develop better presentation skills?
  • Want to start your own business?
  • Have trouble getting new clients and when you do, find it difficult to negotiate contracts?
  • Want to advance your career in advertising, communications or design?

If you need a professional environment to help focus where you are going in your career, this workshop is for you. Here is an opportunity to pause and reflect on your career so far, to consider your values, strengths and needs, and develop tools to get you where you want to go.

You'll also have the chance to meet fellow professionals living in Qatar. You will learn to strengthen your professional network - contacts that will be valuable long after the workshop is over.
