Built on 12 years’ experience of working directly with more than 8,500 career changers, our methodology is based on three pillars – most of which run counter to conventional careers guidance.
The difference in my confidence and self belief after just a few short weeks is phenomenal. I am so glad I signed up – it's the best thing I have ever done for myself.
Get into action from Day 1
If you're stuck in analysis paralysis, more analysis is unlikely to help.
Instead, by following our 'lean career change' approach, you’ll be making things happen in your day to day life from the very first week.
Through the weekly Missions and Exercises (more on those below), you'll be engaging in new ways with the world around you to generate exciting ideas; you'll be running iterative experiments to test what works, without needing to take financial risks or leave your day job; and, as each action builds on the previous ones, you'll be feeling clearer and more confident every week.
Surround yourself with a supportive community
Nothing hinders progress in career change like isolation. If you’re feeling lost, alone, and secretly wondering if you’re the only one, this needs to change. Fast.
That’s why we surround you with a powerful support team of fellow career changers, coaches and subject matter experts.
You’ll tap into their knowledge and expertise, ask questions, share insights and ideas, get help when you’re struggling, celebrate your successes, and relax into the knowledge that we’ve all got your back.
Learn unexpected approaches that actually work
If conventional career advice was helpful for career changers, you’d have shifted by now. Nobody ever taught you to make a major sideways move; everything you know is about how to move up the career ladder.
In the Launch Pad, you’ll learn techniques that were designed specifically for people like you: who don’t have the ‘relevant experience’; who don’t already have an established network; who don’t know exactly where they’re going, or how people get there.
You’ll finish up armed with a toolkit of approaches and strategies that actually suit your situation, and that you can pull out and use at any time.
The Launch Pad showed me that career change doesn't have to be scary; it can be exciting, light-hearted, an adventure.
