    Careering with Guest, Dale Bryce

    Welcome back to our special podcast series, Careering.
    In this series we speak with experienced leaders about the unexpected detours in their career journey. Speaking candidly about their experiences, our guest will inspire and motivate, offering advice and suggestions for how to re-route your career when it comes off the rails.
    About our guest, Dale Bryce Dale Bryce is currently Director - Delivery & Commercial for specialist power & water consultants, Entura.
    He started his career in public relations, working with Lloyds Register in the UK and later heading up communications for one of Australia's largest law firms, King Wood Mallesons.
    He then took a seven year stint establishing and leading a global capability marketing team at Sinclair Knight Merz, which became part of the Jacobs Engineering Group - one of the largest engineering firms in the world.
    Many listeners may also recall that Dale was once the President of APSMA, now ICON.
    If you look at Dale's career path on LinkedIn, it's certainly impressive and at first glance looks flawless. But closer inspection shows a gap for a few months mid 2014 between leaving Jacobs and starting at Entura. We focus on this period for the podcast, where Dale went from running a global team and a business with 70,000 people to being without a role at all. How did he get his career back on track? This is Dale's story.

    Careering with guest, Jayson Williams

    Welcome to the first episode of our special Seldon Rosser podcast series called Careering.
    In this series we speak with experienced leaders about the unexpected detours in their career journey. Speaking candidly about their experiences, our guest will inspire and motivate, offering advice and suggestions for how to re-route your career when it comes off the rails.
    About our guest, Jayson Williams Jayson Williams is the Asia Head of BD and Marketing for global law firm DLA Piper, based in Hong Kong. He has lived and worked in Hong Kong for six years. The past eight years of his résumé show an impressive career trajectory:
    BD Manager at a boutique law firm in Melbourne, Senior BD Manager, Corporate for Clifford Chance Head of BD for Hong Kong's oldest law firm, Deacons. It sounds like a flawless career so far. But what many people don't know is before working in BD for law firms, he founded and ran a multi-million dollar business in Australia, managing a workforce of one hundred across many different sectors and industries. He was a self-made man by the age of 35, until it all went horribly wrong. The global financial crisis (and other factors) devastated his business. And within 18 months he had lost or sold on almost everything. How did he get his career back on track? This is his story.

    FAQs about your marketing, business development & comms career

    FAQs about your marketing, business development & comms career

    There's a funny and informative show on ABC TV called "You can't ask that!" In this show, viewers anonymously ask questions  (typically personal or potentially embarrassing) that many of us wonder about but never want to ask.
    We love this idea, because as recruiters, we are frequently asked questions from candidates about a range of career issues, which sometimes they find a bit awkward. So, to help you learn more about the recruitment process for careers in marketing, business development and communications, we've put together this podcast.
    You will learn:
    Why you should consider taking a contract role Why recruiters don't advertise salaries What to do when you want to be promoted from manager to senior manager Why you should never sign up exclusively with one recruiter How to present your CV when you've had 20 plus years of experience. So, yes, you can ask us all of your career questions and we'll do our very best to answer them. And you don't have to wait until you're applying for a job - get in touch with Nanik, Graham or Katie and we'll be happy to help.
