Philippa Johnston is offering One-to-One Professional Development Planning Sessions for Poets in partnership with the Scottish Poetry Library on Saturday 11 May 2013 (individual sessions at 10.00 – 11.30am, 12.00 – 1.30pm and 2.15 – 3.45pm) at the Scottish Poetry Library, 5 Crichton’s Close, Canongate, Edinburgh EH8 8DT
Professional development planning is all about exploring where you want to get to professionally in a structured way – an opportunity to unravel the different strands of what you currently do, define and prioritize your goals, consider options and then develop a clear and realistic plan of action to achieve them. It’s not about telling you what to do – the guide is there to help you find your own solutions rather than provide you with answers but s/he will signpost you to the different types of resources available.
You can also book a follow-up 90 minute session which provides an opportunity to go further into the specifics.
Philippa Johnston is a Cultural Leadership PCT Accredited Coach and an Associate Member of the Association for Coaching UK. She was until recently Professional Development Director with The Writer’s Compass, NAWE and continues to co-deliver its professional development planning and coaching service Compass Points on a freelance basis.
Cost: £35 (special discounted rate – usually £50) or £65 if you’d like to book a follow-up session as well (usually £90)
