Bold Career Project

“I was a very challenging client as I had extensive experience in a unique industry with seemingly little transference to other industries; particularly industries that provided the personal fit I so desperately sought. Ian facilitated a structured analysis and definition of my skills which we then packaged and used to approach targeted firms. As a result, I was offered exactly what I was looking for: a challenging position; working with exceptional people and technology; and, within an industry that I am passionate about. ”

Our Approach to Career Change Services 


Our work is based on the premise that you have a set of valuable professional assets and that there are natural target markets for what you do. As your career change coach, we help you figure out both of these, develop strategy, and execute on branding, campaign approaches and personal marketing. For more transactional assignments (LinkedIn profile, resume, cover letter, interview coaching), we bring our extensive practical experience to bear to help you put your best foot forward.

Our career coaching and career consulting style involves:

  • A strategic and practical approach to your career development
  • A market-based and marketing focused approach to understanding and connecting the dots between your value and target markets
  • Champion and guide for designing a powerful professional journey
  • A formal, but adaptive process
  • And we have developed an online platform to host the models, online course material (video, lessons and downloadable workbooks) that underpin our work together.

Each package has a set # of consulting hours that is applied to any of the following topics based on your needs and priorities: Goal setting & planning your moves; Professional offering definition; Target Market Identification / Sharpening; Target Value Proposition Development; Branding; LinkedIn Advice / Support; Networking Conversation Scripting / Practice; Insights into Interviews with Prep / Practice; Recommendations on Campaign Activities; Executive Recruiter Insight / Approach Strategy; Online strategy; Support in the creation of your “thing” – as a freelancer, solo-preneur or other project.

Bold Career Project

“I had the pleasure of working with Ian as a client who was seeking a change in career. Ian's series of videos were simple to follow, and were done in short, manageable chunks that were informative and challenged me to think deeply about where I envisioned myself in my career. The workbooks he provided were instrumental in asking key questions that directed my thoughts and energy, and eventually helped me find where I wanted to go. ”
