‘Taking Control of your Career’ Virtual Workshop by Bill Lawry


The pandemic has provided many of us with additional time at home, technology enabled working and an absence of the daily commute. Perhaps, you will also have had time to reflect on the fact that you no longer want to continue in your current role and/or career path. This programme is aimed at anyone who wants to think more deeply about and plan for the career they really want to embark on, no matter if you are just starting out or have worked 30 years in the same role.


This workshop will:


  • Reflect on your ultimate career goals
  • Identify your strengths and the environments in which you thrive
  • Cultivate the brand you want in your current organisation and wider job market
  • Plan and leverage the right relationships to ensure you get the career you want


Bill Lawry, Wellington parent and CEO of Ascend will very kindly share his expertise and facilitate this interactive and stimulating 60 minute virtual workshop. Ascend is an international consultancy that focuses on talent strategy, leadership development and enhancing organisational, team and individual performance.

Career Opportunity Group: Politics, International Affairs and Government

6pm-9pm The Oriental Club, London

Formally launched in 2014, Career Opportunity Groups (COGs) were set up to provide support and networking opportunities for members of the Wellington Community in whatever their chosen career.

This drinks and networking reception is a gathering of all from the Wellington Community including parents, OWs, Wellington staff and students who work in or are interested in fields related to Politics. Our sixth form students who attend these events find them invaluable, it is also a wonderful opportunity for OWs and parents to network and we hope all from our Community who are interested in or working in this field will join us.

We are delighted to welcome Peter Truesdale as guest speaker. Peter is the former Liberal Democrats leader of Lambeth Council.
