“What’s the best piece of advice that anyone ever gave you?”

ICON is excited to announce its final event in the Next Step program – an interactive panel event covering all things ‘What I Wish I’d Known’. Join three industry leaders as they take a trip back in time and offer the advice that would have made the difference when making moves in their early careers.

Our panellists will share personal lessons, learnings from their teams and industry insights, specifically around navigating career progression. From the mistakes they made to the advice that rang true, our experts will be sharing their practical ‘no holds barred’ tips on how to get ahead in your career.

This will be an interactive session via Zoom, so we’d love your cameras on and for you to come ready with questions to put to our panellists!
