City Stars - Navigate your career strategy through change

Posted: March 12th 2020

The City Stars Programme is designed by City Hive CEO Bev Shah and Christine Brown-Quinn, a former Managing Director in International Finance, now an author, speaker and consultant helping women to develop business strategies so they can thrive in their careers. Well versed in what it takes to forge a thriving career in highly pressurised, alpha environments, Christine is known as The Female Capitalist.

At the beginning of their career, when delivery andcompletion of tasks are paramount, women often excel. By mid-career, however,they can experience a slow-down inthe rate of pay and promotion, which cannot be simply explained away bymaternity leave or a system based purely on meritocracy. So what is happeninghere?

First and foremost you have to take full ownership of your careerso that you can shape it in a way that keeps you fully engaged and aligned to achanging competitive environment. There is an easy way to go about this - withoutadding more hours to an already long day - but it does require a fresh approachand a new way of thinking.

While hard skills are perhaps more obvious and achievable, the softskills critical to career progression are often overlooked. The City Stars programme, therefore, addressesthe issue of career ownership and strategic positioning as well as the criticalsoft sills to move a promising career forward.
