“Is one career enough? Why you should have at least 2 careers.”
BBC on-line article about portfolio careers 13 April 2017
Portfolio careers are featured in an article on BBC Online by reporter Beth Timmins.
Former UK chancellor and current MP George Osborne’s appointment as editor of London’s newspaper The Evening Standard has put the spotlight on portfolio careers as a topic in the media.
This article explores senior portfolio careers. One example is Duncan McNair – commercial lawyer, author and elephant campaigner.
I like how the essence of each person’s portfolio career is described. Knowing your own essence helps you to understand your portfolio career yourself and to explain it to others.
The essence of my own portfolio career was originally ‘energising connector’ and it evolved into ‘talent liberation’.
Analyzing and synthesizing insights to define your portfolio career essence is one of the ways I help my clients.
I enjoyed this article and hope you do too. The author Beth Timmins contacted me as part of her research and there is a quote from me in it about portfolio careers.
