The prospect of gardening, Disney+, lots of reading and a bit of daily exercise does sound pretty appealing at first, but an enforced break is quickly going to feel pretty frustrating for ambitious professionals.
When the world starts to recover, a long time spent unproductively won't help with employability either.
If you are in this situation, our forthcoming complimentary webinar on becoming a thought leader while furloughed is for those who want to use this time productively to develop their reputation for expertise, whether simply amongst their colleagues, within their business network or more widely in their industry.
Thought leadership can entail all sorts of things, from a weekly blog to a major report or even writing a book. In the webinar, we’ll be focusing on how professionals at home with a couple of spare months, a PC, a phone and a bit of determination can start building a valuable reputation for expertise and insight.
We know from feedback a lot of accountants know they should do more to build their personal reputation, but have used excuses and "busyness" to avoid doing it.
If this sounds like you, and you are determined that you won't miss this unique if unwelcome opportunity of zero client work to work on your own reputation, we'll also be covering how to overcome that inner unease that has deflected you so far for all these years and will still be working to distract you in the coming weeks at home!
