Talk Title: How to make a confident leap from a corporate career into consulting to achieve the career of your dreams
Michelle Kvello is the founder of Lantern Partners, a virtual CFO firm, working with founder CEOs of start-ups and scale-ups. She has a personal love of driving entrepreneur success because early in her career she realised there was a need for founders to have access to good commercial and strategic financial support. Often the health and hygiene compliance work was sorted, but the missing piece of the puzzle was the partnering support to help the business really grow. She founded Lantern Partners with the vision of being that partner.
This year she launched her Corporate to Consultant programme, a practical guide through the key building blocks in making a successful move. Think of it as your 10 year head start.
Recently named one of the top 50 Women in Accounting (2021) and top 50 Small Business Leader (2022), she is passionate about using her voice and her stories to support women in the industry, as well as small businesses and individuals moving from corporate roles into their consulting dream. She hates the idea of people feeling “stuck” whether professionally or in business when the information she shares could unlock that!
Michelle Kvello Talk: How to Make a Confident Leap from a Corporate Career into Consulting to Achieve the Career of Your Dreams
Does it feel like your current corporate career is dimming your light and making you feel burned out and unfulfilled? Do you sometimes wonder what it would feel like to have a career as a consultant that gives you freedom over your time and autonomy over the people you work with and the projects you work on?
In this session, you will learn how to make a confident leap from the corporate career that is sucking the life out of you into a career that gives you the flexibility you crave. You will learn that making that leap is not something that only other people do and you too can achieve the career of your dreams.
It may feel daunting and scary to think what life could look like over on the other side, but staying where you are could be devastating to your health and well-being.
10 years ago Michelle was exactly where you are now. She was spent, burned out and knew that her professional choices were no longer the right ones for her.
So she jumped, practically blind into consulting life…..and made mistakes, plenty of them!
Fast forward to today she runs a thriving international consulting business, works her own hours, is regularly featured in the media and has won industry awards for what she does.
She now works with women who are exploring making that leap to make it a success.
