In this episode I chat with Claire Curyer from White Blank Pages. Claire was diagnosed with dyslexia early on in her schooling and at the age of 11, she had the reading and writing of a 7 year old. Although the traditional schooling style and learning proved to be difficult for her, it did not hinder her ambition, which saw her successfully complete University and create a high achieving career. Now, as a career coach, she couples her professional career experience developed through a decade of hands of marketing experience, student engagement and project management over a diverse range of industries, with her personal breakthroughs to bring to you, grounded, relatable and modern mentoring.
In this episode Claire shares:
