Inspiration For The Month Of March

written by


At the beginning of each month Zoe (UK Campus Course Advisor & Tutor) and I write a column for ‘Academy Inspire’, published on the campus websites.  Our messages are inspired by our own lives, the questions we receive from our Students, Graduates and those of your considering a career in this industry and current events.
Let’s take a look at what Zoe and I are inspired by this month.

Digital Detox – by Christine Ligthart

My Inspire column for this month outlines a step by step plan for taking a Digital Detox.  I wrote this as much as for myself as for all of those of you who feel like you just need an extra hour every day to get ‘it all done’.  To read my post head to the Australian Campus website here and scroll down to find my ‘Inspire’ column.

Growth & Change  – by Zoe McKeown

This month Zoe uses Spring as a chance to consider growth and change in your career and business. To read Zoe’s Inspire message, visit the UK website here and scroll down to the ‘Inspire’ column.
We hope that you enjoy our messages and if you have some words of inspiration to share with us, please add them to the comments.  If you decide to do a Digital Detox we would also love to hear about your experience and encourage our students to share their story with us in our private Facebook Group, Academy Live.
Have a wonderful month!
