The Soft Skills of Personal Development
Uisdean Vass – MD of VassPetro Limited
26th November at 6pm
In his talk, Uisdean will highlight how he sees values and ethics as being central to personal and career development. He will elaborate on his central value of “truth-telling” which in fact has many applications. Using this as a basis, he will elaborate on the importance of seeking out a mentor (or better mentors) to assist young people to develop balance in their careers. Beyond that young people should develop the important network of professional friends who can support them in their work and personal lives. Young people should also aggressively set themselves targets in terms of workplace participation, sports, charitable involvement and so. Social media involvement of some kind, eg LinkedIn, is now a must. Soft skills and personal development should be seen as a holistic endeavour.
