Professional Development



Dear members of the PWN, 

if participant numbers and feedback are anything to go by, the 2018-2019 PWN Professional Development programme was a great success for both the team and its participants: some 220 PWN members attended 10 workshops and 120 Congress participants welcomed the creative workshop around "The Tree of Life" on June 12th!

This year, the PWN Paris DEVELOP teams are offering you three programmes: Unleash Your Talents (Professional Development), Drive Your Career (formerly Women in Transition), and Mentoring. As well as other forthcoming opportunities that will be available to you through the PWN Paris network.

Enthused and boosted by the whole experience, the new 2019-2020 PWN Professional Development team is proud to announce this coming year's programme : "Unleash your Talents!",  launching with a first evening workshop on Tuesday September 17th.

We will continue to offer you experiential workshops and rewarding and stimulating tools for continued personal development and more professional development. And we'll be returning to the Institute of Neurocognitivism (INC, métro Cadet) thanks once again to the generosity and support of Pierre Moorkens and Muriel Janoir-Bessioud. 

As last year and with the help of experts in their fields (all members of the PWN) we’ll learn something new about ourselves and others, we’ll decide to be or do something differently. Identifying and building on our talents to boost our self-confidence and go places we haven't dared go until now. And we will share, exchange and network in a safe and convivial environment, where diversity is welcome and encouraged.
