Julie Caulfield-Dollard.

Julie Caulfield-Dollard from SVG Promotions Ltd. was one of the first women to enrol onto the Career Development Programme.

Julie initially applied as she was looking to learn new skills and also thought up-to-date training would look good on her CV.

Julie realised the programme could help in many other ways.

— I would definitely recommend the project to others as the content of the course will help develop you as a team leader or manager whilst the interaction with others builds your confidence.

I felt the project would be great for me as it would give a qualification in management, an area that my skills were lacking in, also I welcomed the opportunity to mix with like-minded people, make new contacts and increase my confidence.

Already seeing the benefits.

— It has been quite a while since I have been in a classroom so I have found it stimulating to be in a learning environment and looking in depth at things such as communication which we take for granted on a day to day basis.

Writing the essays, something which all initially dreaded, gave a great sense of achievement once completed.

I have also found it very interesting to mix with women from different career paths and of different ages and I think this has stimulated us all to look at our current jobs and how these can be improved as well as new career opportunities.

Often we sit back and just carry on and this course has given the confidence to come forward with new ideas and suggestions in our workplace.

That increase in confidence has already seen Julie apply for a promotion and achieve it!

— I would definitely recommend the project to others as the content of the course will help develop you as a team leader or manager whilst the interaction with others builds your confidence.

As the course is fairly spread out over time it is not difficult to complete while working full time. I am also looking forward to being able to attend the Milkshake Seminars throughout the year.

Jane Baker Roberts said (Chwarae Teg Personal Development Partner):-

— This programme is an amazing opportunity to help woman to move forward in their career and be empowered to make the right choices.

It gives them the space to reflect and learn new skills with a new found confidence and self-belief.

Within each session I have seen a huge difference in their outlook and self-belief that “anything is possible if you want it” and for me, this is proof that the programme is working.
