Claire B Jenkins
Claire has over 25 years’ experience of interviewing in the private, public and charity sectors. She works with clients all over the world and with all age groups from teenagers and University undergraduates right through to the over 60s. She’s helped people to get jobs in sectors as diverse as: banking, aviation, legal, automotive, civil service, IT / data analysis, health, media, sport, public utilities and into academia.
Guardian Careers regularly use Claire as an “Expert Panelist” for live web chats on anything job interview related. Her talk will help you to make a great impression every time.
Dr. Anita Pickerden
Anita coaches and trains people in all aspects of work: helping clients to find their true life purpose, finding work, coping with challenges at work, and also finishing work (planning for retirement or redundancy).
Her research was on the work life balance of older workers, and she found that many people (whether working for themselves or for an employer) had so many conflicting priorities from home, family, job, etc., that they often became ill from stress and anxiety. Her talk will help you to manage those priorities to stay healthy and happy in your work.
Claire and Anita have recently published a book: “Invited for a Job Interview? Now What? How to Succeed at Your Next interview”

About The Event
Pathway2Grow's “Samosa Saturday” is a relaxed, friendly and informative B2B networking event for Professional Women centred around empowerment, self-development, personal & business growth. Each event we provide a high-quality Guest Speaker who presents on a topic of interest to anyone seeking success in their life and business. We encourage all our guests, whether it's their first time or not to introduce themselves to the rest of the floor with a one minute intro during our “Pitch Perfect” segment, however, there is absolutely no pressure to do so! We believe in building a close community both at our events as well as online with plenty of ongoing opportunities to converse and share with a WhatsApp group (send a message to 07739 471 133), Facebook Group and also on LinkedIn:
So come and join us to #Network & #Learn #Grow!
