Project YOU: Your Career and Life MOT | WeAreTheCity Event 03/05/2014


3rd May 2014

Have you ever felt limited in your career, life or business?  Have you have caught yourself thinking that you lack direction, or that you are unable to set yourself on your own path to success?   If so, you are not alone!

For 2014, you can change all of that.   January saw the launch of Project YOU, a one day programme that aims to inject the “va va voom” back in to your view of your future.  Project YOU can show you how to unlock your potential and get yourself on the path to success, stepping around the limitations you’ve perceived in the past to go running towards your goals and dreams.    This programme is not about theory, science or blue sky thinking.  Project YOU is about rolling your sleeves up to do the doing and make it happen. Due to popular demand we have opened another date for a Spring Edition!

    I would like to book up for this event. My friend is also interested and has confirmed she will be booking. I just wondered whilst the webpage states we’ll both get 10% off, when I go to pay I can’t actually supply her name and therefore no discount can be applied. So how does this work?

    Also if we book now, will we both still get the 30 min coaching session with Vanessa? I’m looking forward to this bit.

    Many thanks
