Finding Your Path

Would you like Amba Brown to talk to your graduating students?

Finding Your Path is a handbook for the transition from school to adulthood. 

“One of the greatest advantages of this day and age is the range of opportunities at your fingertips. But this also means an overload of information and choice! Not to mention the different pressures from either school or parents. The daunting question “What will you do next?” can be extremely stressful when you’re wracked with indecision and lacking direction.” (Book excerpt – Amba Brown) 

Australian author, Amba Brown holds a Psychology Degree (Honours) in Positive Psychology, is currently a member of the ‘International Positive Psych Association’ & is passionate about alleviating youth anxieties.

Amba will talk to students about and the different pathways they can explore when considering their future. Amba will touch upon exploring the world, planning for their career and finding your own way.

Amba delves into the importance of goal setting, the importance of traveling, and why you should always be working on your own personal project. If you’re feeling stuck at a career crossroads and not sure which way to go, or are about to leave school and feeling lost, then this is an opportunity your students won’t want to miss.

MORE SPECIFICALLY STUDENTS WILL LEARN ABOUT:

  • The different options and pathways to explore after finishing school
  • Why thinking about smiling could be crucial to a career path after school
  • The importance of momentum once you have graduated
  • Why a personal project could set one up for career success
  • Inspirational ideas to get students thinking about life after school
  • Why you should maybe think about setting off to see the world

Amba will be in Sydney between the 11 & 22 September 2017, if you are interested in Amba giving a FREE talk to your graduating students please email me Jacqui.barton@harpercollins.com.au
