ICON NSW is excited to announce the launch of the 2018 Next Step Program.

Next Step events are designed to support the development of up-and-coming marketing, communications and business development professionals. The program of events has been specifically created to help expand skill sets, build professional networks and provide inspiration for career success.

The program is a series of five separate events run over the course of a year (each interactive event runs for approximately 1 hour, with networking opportunities within a Sydney CBD venue). Although individual registration and attendance is available, we encourage attendees to take advantage of the Next Step Program package which provides the opportunity to register for all five events in the series at a discounted cost. More details on registration for this series are located at the end of this email.

We are excited to invite you to our first event of 2018 in April and share what we have in store for the rest of the year.

A little bit more about Linda Murray

Linda was 22 when she started her first business. Over a span of seven years, Linda grew the business significantly to a team of 25 staff and became known as the leader in the bookkeeping industry. However, armed with a degree in Psychology and Philosophy, she was aware that her business acumen at the time was limited. After experiencing business coaching at an early stage in her career, coupled with a burning desire for helping others, Linda sold her business at the age of 29 and started Athena Coaching.

Ask anyone and they will tell you, Linda is best known for her ability to connect and for taking complex situations and explaining them in a way which is easy to navigate and implement. Drawing on nearly two decades of experience in business, a passion for human behaviour and Positive Psychology, as well as her academic background she shows professionals how to enjoy greater commercial outcomes and accelerated individual success.
