Presentation: Power Up the Future-Ready BA (Melbourne)

In a rapidly changing world, it is critical for us to adapt ourselves constantly and consistently while also finding new avenues for growth and career advancement.

As business analysts we become proficient at enabling change within organisations. However, getting out of our comfort zone to rejuvenate and reinvent ourselves is not something we prioritise often enough. Often what holds us back is a perceived lack of time, a sense of anxiety or simply not knowing how to go about it.

In this session Malini draws on her experience as a leader and coach to share practical strategies that you can adopt to turbo-charge your journey towards future-readiness. We examine the mindset and skillset of the Future-Ready BA and ways to nurture these for yourself. We will also explore tactics that ensure you not only survive but also thrive in this long game.
