The Best Piece Of Career Advice I Ever Received Was…

Looking for that step up in your career? We picked the brains of the Lux Group Executive Leadership Team and asked them to finish this sentence.

The best piece of career advice I ever received was…

“If you want something, be it a new role or responsibility, make sure you have a conversation and make your intentions known and then work for it – if you don’t tell, they don’t know and can’t support you in your pursuit!”

– Donna Thomas, General Manager –  The Gourmet

This isn’t advice I was given but advice I give to youngsters (of which I also include myself)…

  1. “Don’t create the problem. The best ideas and innovations come to you when you’re trying to fix a problem that already exists.”
  2. “If you get an idea, make sure you put real skin in the game. Without risk there is rarely reward…”

– Adam Schwab, Managing Director

“Luck doesn’t just happen… Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”

– Daniel Kitay, General Manager – Affiliate Businesses

 “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”

– Ian Tinsley, CTO

“Dress for the job you want, not the job you have”

“Invest in your own personal and professional development – don’t wait for someone to do this for you.”

– Alexandra Mills, CEO – Products

“It doesn’t matter where you start, it matters where you finish.”

– Julia Davis, Director – People & Culture

“Take a risk! Don’t go with the safe option and learn to back yourself.”

– Melissa Fahey, CFO
