Practical advice on how you can create opportunities for others no matter your position in the workplace.

Can you identify a pivotal career moment where someone influenced your journey – an introduction, a piece of recognition, a project or even a rejection? When we take time to reflect on these moments, the people that have made the biggest difference often don’t realise the impact they’ve had.

Tune in to hear from PwC employees about the effect someone has made on their careers, how it influences the way they navigate their career today and how they support others. You’ll come away with practical advice on how you can create opportunities for others – whether you’re a manager, mentor, sponsor, or peer, we can all play a role in pulling people up the success ladder with us.

3 Key takeaways:
  • How to be intentional about creating pivotal moments for others
  • Practical ways to pull people up the ladder behind you – for example helping someone expand their network, making an introduction or being an advocate.
  • How to identify and build a relationship with a sponsor
