Are you ready for interview season?

With interview season in full swing, many doctors are preparing and applying for roles. Ensuring your CV is well-structured and up-to-date plus practising your interview skills should not be rushed. Give yourself plenty of time to get it right so you can increase your chances of progressing to the interview stage.

Article – Influence and persuasion

Persuasion and influence in healthcare leadership can sometimes be underestimated, yet they are pivotal for professionals aiming to advance in their careers. Without understanding the different characteristics of each and how these skills can be used, effecting change in the workplace will be more challenging.

While there is a distinction between influence and persuasion, it’s critical to understand how you can use them to enhance your career effectiveness and leadership impact.

We deliver workshops on this topic for medical and workforce staff including JMOs, Medical Workforce, Senior Medical Officers and Executive leaders, Registrars, Fellows and Practice Owners. To find out more, contact me at [email protected]

MIGA webinars

From Mt Gambier to Melbourne

Earlier this month I was delighted to return to Mt Gambier to facilitate a series fo workshops for a range of team members within the Limestone Coast Regional Training Hub. The collaboration between Flinders University and Mt Gambier Hospital brought together medical students, doctors, medical workforce and education and executive staff to reflect on career-related skills.

Thank you to the team led by Dr Carrie McKenzie who worked logistical wonders and to all of the participants who gave up evenings and a Saturday to share experiences, contribute ideas and build new and existing relationships across this dedicated regional team.



From Mt Gambier it was on to Melbourne to meet with clients, connections (with an unexpected viewing of a Nobel Prize Gold Medal!!) and attend the 2-day Festival of Digital Health.

Watch this space for our next article focusing on highlights from the conference.



En route to Cairns for the AMAQ JDC, I will be returning to Brisbane for the fourth time this year to present at the Queensland Children’s Hospital. Registrars and Fellows will be joining to discuss career planning, CV development and interview preparation.

If you would like to catch up while I am in Brisbane or Cairns, please get in touch.
