Gaining clarity for your career by examining preferences, strengths, development areas and ensuring your next career steps, CV and development plan are aligned.

This engaging and personal webinar covered:

  • How to set you up for career success by identifying your next career steps to get out career overwhelm and frustration and achieve your dream career.
  • Strengthening your CV to support your career aspirations
  • Updating your development plan with crucial areas to be addressed.

These outcomes are achieved by gaining clarity on:

  • Spending quality time analysing your strengths, areas of enjoyment and where these overlap.
  • Reflect on areas of enjoyment not identified as a strength.
  • Considering challenges to your career; areas in need of work, improvement or avoidance.

The webinar on Wednesday 2 March provides suggestions and ideas on where to go for additional support with these suggestions, ideas to think about and gain clarity on strengths.

The webinar finished with action. Participants are challenged to commit to their next step, to capture what their intent is and give themselves a challenging timescale to complete it.

Jeanette Pope is a project manager, a coach and a keen supporter of women getting the best from their careers. Jeanette is a Fellow with the APM, and holds both the ChPP and RPP qualifications. Jeanette also holds an MBA from Henley Management College and a BSc (Hons) in Psychology.

Jeanette started her career in finance and after eight years moved into project management, a career which has now spanned 16 years. Jeanette has held leadership positions, head of programme, head of business operations and head of people capability within the project management discipline. Jeanette has been coaching, mentoring and supporting women with their careers for over 10 years.



Clare Hornsby has been in project management for over 20 years, mainly in defence and aerospace, supporting UK and international customers. She started as a project controller and has worked in governance & assurance, project delivery and IT programme management. Although mainly based in the northwest of England, she has also worked in East Anglia and has recently spent 2 years living and working in Saudi Arabia.
In 2019 Clare gained her APM Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) accreditation, and then started mentoring other women who would like to become Chartered.

Last year Clare was nominated to join the APM Women in Project Management SIG, and is part of a sub-group looking at mental health and wellbeing within project management, and women in particular. A few years ago she suffered from depression and anxiety, and until that point had never really understood mental illness and was more of a “stiff upper lip” kind of person. Project management is a naturally stressful profession and sometimes that, along with the pressures of everyday life, can be overwhelming and it’s important that we can talk about it, help ourselves and each other.
