    Career Shifters: Kelly Keating - establishing a portfolio career

    Career Shifters: Kelly Keating - establishing a portfolio career

    In this episode I chat to Kelly Keating who, with a career spanning 25 years across SMEs the Third Sector and Financial Services, has purposefully established a portfolio career to ensure life and career can work together and be mutually rewarding.

    Kelly shares her journey to reaching this goal, giving insight to a few of the many things Kelly is involved in as an employee, a self-employed Coach, a charity Board member, the co-lead of a professional female networking platform as well as being a mum to a five-year-old and a wife!

    Kelly shares how she has positioned herself to make a difference - in her organisation and outside of this by living true to her values of Integrity, Community, Compassion, Growth and Connection. 

    Kelly does not profess to being Superwoman by any means (although I do wonder!) and is very honest about the "juggle" she still manages. The clear positive here though, is Kelly's passion for all she does resulting in the fulfilment her portfolio career affords her. 

    Kelly is upbeat, positive yet grounded and I am confident you will find this episode both interesting and inspiring.

    Paul articulates his awareness of the privileges he has (male, white, educated...) but shares how he - and others like him - can be supporters and sponsors to anyone trying to make changes in their careers.
    Paul is a father of three children and he and his wife work hard to ensure an equal balance in the household - stressing the importance of role modelling this behaviour to our children.
