"My Aha moment was recognizing that when I was on the programme nine years ago, I wasn't ready or skilled enough to utilize the networking opportunities it offered. Now, a couple of sector changes later, networking has become an essential part of my professional development plan and I seek out opportunities to meet people in my area of work and beyond; but more than that, take efforts to maintain and sustain those connections. I'm not perfect at it, but a hell of a lot better at utilizing my people skills in this way than I was nine years ago and it is benefiting me and enriching my learning. Common Purpose introduced me to professional networking."
