The Expert Economy

We are living in a very different world today than we were a decade ago. We’re at the beginning of a whole new era. Our world is global, digital, intangible, more meaningful and very entrepreneurial.

– Daniel Priestley, Creator of Key Person of Influence

Thursday 12th October, 9am – 5pm

Lakeside North Harbour, Western Road,

Portsmouth, PO6 3EN

As the Business landscape changes dramatically, so must we.

Success today is not achieved by earning new qualifications or playing a functional role with your organisation, but rather by becoming irreplaceable!

We do this by becoming known for solving real problems that deliver tangible results.

It is no longer enough to show up on time and expect new opportunities to find us.

Instead, we must learn to become the masters of our own destiny by positioning ourselves as experts within our industry and managing our own personal brand
