      How to Safeguard Your Career in Changing Times and become known as the authority in your field with Jane Jackson 

      Tuesday 12 March 2024, 11am AWT

      About the Webinar 

      In this changing corporate environment, it’s important for every office professional to safeguard their career. How can you do that when there are layoffs and redundancies everywhere you turn? By positioning yourself as indispensable and THE go-to person who gets the job done, even during times of change you will be in control of your career.

      One of the best ways to do this is to build a strong personal brand so that you are ‘Google-able’!

      Learn how to become a content creator rather than a passive receptor of information on LinkedIn.

      Don’t miss Jane Jackson’s presentation on 12 March 2024 11am (PER) 2pm (SYD).

      About the Presenter

      Jane was our VERY FIRST ‘National Webinar Series’ presenter in 2020!  She is a career transition specialist, a LinkedIn Top Voice and author of best seller, Navigating Career Crossroads (finalist in the Australian Career Book awards)!

      Join us and find out how you can build your brand online, become the authority in your area of expertise and on the journey towards becoming a top voice in your field.

      AIOP Mentoring Program 2024

      AIOP has for many years unofficially mentored its members.  AIOP embarks on an official Mentoring Program in February 2024.

      Mentoring is a relationship between two people with the goal of professional and personal development.

      Its personal development through a relationship in which a more experienced person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person.

      Mentoring is all about developing by working with someone with experiences, knowledge and expertise that you can tap into.

      Mentoring is about building capability through the relationship that develops between the mentor and mentee.

      The "mentor" is usually an experienced individual who shares knowledge, experience, and advice with a less experienced person, or "mentee."

      Have you been a mentor or a mentee? If so, join the program by completing the official paperwork. 

      The following Mentoring forms are to be completed to join the program:

        About the Speaker 

        Dante St James, Clickstarter

        Expert in Residence, Lecturer, Digital Business Consultant. Talks about #startups, #socialmedia, #personalbrand, #digitalmarketing, and #entrepreneurship entrepreneurship.

        Although the name Clickstarter didn’t come about until late 2016 on the Gold Coast, the work of Clickstarter was being done as far back as 1996 when Dante St James built his first website using Netscape Composer on a Packard Bell 386 computer.

        Dante took the concept to the place where he’d spend the largest chunk of his adult life, Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory. It’s where he’d carved out his media career, changed careers and eaten a few too many fried foods from street markets.

        Dante is a member of Central Division (SA/NT), and the Central Division (Darwin) Representative.
