This month is all about welcome’s here at Clara Rose Consultancy as we say ‘Welcome’ to 2020! And ‘Welcome’ to Vikki Pratley, our newest career management consultant.
Read on to find out a bit more about Vikki in this interview…
What’s your career highlight?
Until 2018, I was a practicing employment lawyer. My biggest career highlight up until then was being the first in the UK to set up a law firm within a top 30 accountancy practice, based predominantly in East Anglia and London.
What is your top achievement of 2019?
I left the legal profession in 2018 armed with a passion to support lawyers to create change for themselves. And this passion led to me training to be a qualified coach, licenced practitioner, facilitator and speaker and the creation of my own business, Skylark.
Through this my top achievement of 2019 came along, which was joining forces with Clara Rose Consultancy to run ‘Lawyers: Be More Awesome’ in Ipswich, Chelmsford, Norwich and Cambridge.
We had so much great feedback and demand from the events, we will be bringing Lawyers; Be More Awesome to four more locations in 2020 so watch this space!
What happened at Lawyers; Be More Awesome?
In case you missed them, the lawyers who joined us at the events discovered practical ways they can Be More Awesome, regardless of their seniority and how awesome they already are! Taking responsibility to manage your own career is part of this. If you don’t know where to start, the consultants at Clara Rose Consultancy can help you explore your vision for your legal career so you can decide on your next steps.
What do you have planned in 2020?
Excitingly, after realising how complimentary our businesses are, I have joined Clara Rose and Ali Gibbs as another career management consultant. I am excited to work with many of you in the coming years to help manage your legal career; whether that is within the firm you’re already in or through changing to another firm.
