Career Talks & Workshops

Creative Careers – Professional advice

Do your students need a creative kick? Would they some day like a design job or a career in the art world? Do you struggle to provide them with career advice relating to creative areas such as design and art? I would like to offer your students the opportunity to meet a professional designer, get a grasp on the best design schools, how to choose a career and gain valuable insights in to my predictions for career opportunities in the years to come.

Why do I offer this?

Every year I do a Career Talk at the RDS Higher Options event which has proven very successful with students and Career Guidance teachers alike. Sometimes students don’t get to go to this event or maybe they were too shy / rushed to come ask me questions pertaining to their needs. I would now like to offer your school the opportunity to engage with me directly to speak to you students or host my workshop that helps them refine their career vision. I am delighted with my career choices that I made at the age of 16 but I know a lot of people who wish they had done things a bit different. It is my mission to use my unique skills to help young people make these life changing decisions in a more enjoyable way. I love sharing my insights into the creative sector and I am excited to work with your school to give your students the information they need to succeed.

How it works

Career Talk: My Career Talk is one hour in duration and I can speak to any number of students in your school. The presentation is 30minutes and I allocate 30minutes for Q&A and one to one talking with the students. Typically my talks benefit students studying Design, Art, Science and Engineering. My talks put a heavy emphasis on career opportunities for creatives rather than selling third level courses. The fee for this talk is €100 regardless of the number of attendees – so feel free to invite as many students as you wish.

Career Workshop: This workshop is 2 hours long and can be conducted during or after school hours depending on your particular requirements. All materials are provided by me on the day and the workshop can cater for up to 40 students. Following a brief introduction the students will work in groups to explore their visions and refine them in to goals using my unique playsheets and exercises. This unique workshop will help them to understand how to approach the difficult task of choosing their career and upon completion they will have a vision board and goals chart that reflects their unique needs. The fee for this event is €20 per student for up to 20 students and it decreases to €15 if the group is larger than 20 students. This workshop will suit any student as it allows them explore any career option in a fun creative way.
