Stay in control of your own career. That’s what Dr Mike Warren, the CEO and Founder of Proteus Career Management Services did. After redundancy from the heady world of scientific research he found a new job quite quickly by using his network and approaching companies directly.
Eighteen months later he needed a new challenge and took the decision to review where he was at, what he might do, where he might go and how he might get there.
He sought the advice of his Danish friend and mentor, Bacchu Singh, and like his father before him Mike decided to run his own business.
As Bacchu pointed out, “You managed to sort out your own career so why not pass on that knowledge and help other people with their careers?” And the rest, as they say, is history!
By taking control of my own destiny, following my own dreams, retraining for two years and with the support of another mentor, Keith Folkes, the most important career decision of my life came to fruition. Since then Proteus has given career advice to 20,822 people. #proteuscareermanagement #mentoring #networking
