Before I started to work with Executive Connexions, I successfully worked as CFO and CEO in a small stock-listed distribution company (sales: €36M) in Singapore for five years. As the main shareholder decided to change the strategic direction and my term was not renewed, he offered me another role in which I could contribute my financial skills.
I connected with Steve through LinkedIn and found him to be easy to speak to and flexible to my schedule. His way of working matched more of who I was and how I worked. I have a direction where I want to go and I have been working to adjust my skill set. I have already received invites for lecturing events and plan to continue that in the future.
Although my redundancy had been anticipated for a long time, I was determined to use it as a chance to launch a new career. I secured support for career coaching and the “Be Found” program as part of my redundancy settlement. Delays to the redundancy process also meant that I had 6 month’s notice, which having been continually employed for over 30 years was a very new experience, and at times very unsettling.
