Career by Design

Your personal blueprint for professional success.

Do you feel like your career is stuck on pause?
It’s time to press play.


You’re a smart, successful woman but, right now, you’re feeling lost, frustrated and confused.

After years of climbing the corporate ladder and putting work first, you’re beginning to wonder whether it’s all been worth it. You’ve poured your heart and soul into your career, but you’re no longer getting the recognition you deserve. You’re getting passed over for promotions and you feel almost invisible to the senior leaders in your organisation.

You’ve got the experience to outsmart the Gen Y’s and the drive to surpass the Gen Z’s, but you’re beginning to second guess yourself. The doubt is creeping in and your confidence is taking a hit. You worry that you’re having a career crisis. Maybe even a midlife crisis.

You’re not sure whether you need a total reinvention or just a career makeover.

All you know is that you can’t keep going like this…

What if you could seriously shake
things up in just one day?

Career by Design is a one day, women’s only workshop designed to propel you to the level of professional success you know you deserve.

Led by one of Australia’s most inspiring mentors, Jane Benston, this powerful and immersive workshop will teach you to create professional success by design, not by default.

Whether it’s simply moving the needle from where you’re at, or mapping out an entirely new career path, Career by Design helps you get clear on exactly what you want – and how to get there.

Surrounded by like-minded women in a gorgeous setting, you’ll go on a journey of self-discovery and goal setting – the perfect catalyst for the change you’re so desperately craving.

And the best part? You’ll leave with a personalised plan of attack, designed around your specific goals, so you can start implementing as soon as you step out the door.

I met Jane at a networking night and I liked her style. She had a real presence and no fear about saying things exactly as she saw them.

At the time, I was feeling stressed, unhappy and ‘stuck’ in my senior management role. I knew I needed help to get me out of my ‘career fog’, and the workshop came at the perfect time.

Jane’s workshop literally changed everything for me. Not only did I learn to identify and articulate why I needed a change, I also committed mentally and emotionally to what that change would be.

More than 2 years on still have the big one-pager up on my wall, and I love looking at it every day. It’s such a great reminder of the day that keeps me focused on my goals and moving in the right direction.

Picture This…

You wake up every morning feeling excited about your workday.
You can’t wait to get to the office and pick up those key projects you’ve been driving.

You’re doing work you love and you’re making a difference. The value you bring to your organisation is huge – and it doesn’t go unnoticed. You’re being trusted with big-ticket projects, top-tier clients and teams of staff that love learning from you. You’re making waves in senior leadership circles for all the right reasons. Your outstanding results speak for themselves, and your authentic approach makes it look and feel effortless.

Between boardroom meetings, networking events and being the “go-to” person in your department, you’re connecting with all the right people – and you’re learning every day. The stress of waiting for an opportunity to knock on your door has been replaced by the exhilaration of being in demand.

People are practically beating your door down. You’ve gone from surviving 9 to 5 to seriously thriving – and you’re loving every minute.

Most of all, you finally feel aligned with your work. Like what you’re doing is exactly what you should be doing.

Imagine feeling in control, in flow and absolutely in love with your career. It’s all possible.

What You’ll learn

Over the course of one inspiring day, you’ll map out a complete strategy to define,
align and elevate your career.


  • Lift the veil of confusion and get clear on what you really want. Set clear, achievable, actionable goals, then zero in with laser focus.
  • Uncover the truth about what’s been holding you back. Banish self-limiting beliefs, so you can move forward with unshakable confidence.
  • Discover your personal leadership style. Own it. Embrace it. Make no apologies.


  • Relight the fire with work you don’t want to put down, and never struggle through another weekday.
  • Learn to leverage your skills and talents in a way that works for you. Play to your strengths so you can play a bigger game.
  • Liberate yourself, step fearlessly into your leadership style and get the confidence you need to be your authentic business self.


  • Create your own personal blueprint for success, with an actionable plan that maps out a clear path to your goals.
  • Learn strategies to get you seen, heard and recognised by senior leadership – and get back on their radar, big time.
  • Connect with like-minded, professional women who can keep you accountable, long after the workshop ends.

Walk in overwhelmed.
Walk out as a woman on a mission.

I knew I wanted something different for my career. I just didn’t know what it was or how to get there. Now, after just one day with Jane, I’m so much clearer.

Writing down my goals and sharing them with the group was so powerful. Putting my thoughts down on paper has really inspired me to take action.

Since the workshop, I’m much more comfortable with ‘putting myself out there’. I know I have the skills and abilities I need to reach my goals – and now I have the confidence too.

Wondering if Career by Design is right for you?

Career by Design is perfect for you if…

You’re an intelligent, accomplished and committed career woman,
yet you still feel unseen, unheard and undervalued.

You have an overwhelming sense of ‘groundhog day’, and you feel
stuck and disillusioned.

You want a career that sets your soul on fire. It’s not enough for
you to just have a ‘job’.

You feel isolated and alone, and you long to connect with
like-minded women.

You need space, time and support to think clearly about what you
really want.

You are SO ready to shake things up and embrace change – even
if it means doing some deep personal work and asking yourself
some seriously hard questions.

Change is challenging. This is not a drill.

Career by Design is designed to facilitate real and lasting connections with like-minded women – and impact real and lasting change.

There’s going to be some powerful energy in the room, which is why numbers are strictly limited. If you’re REALLY ready to say goodbye to the status quo, book now to secure your spot – and start getting excited about the future. Because when you leave the workshop with your personal blueprint to success, as part of a circle of women who WILL keep you accountable, there is no turning back.

No more being a passenger on your own path to success.

Career by Design puts you back in the driver’s seat. You might want to buckle up. If you love the sound of this intimate, high vibe workshop – and you’re ready to start living life on purpose – don’t waste another minute. Career by Design will sell out, so book now to avoid disappointment.

What others say about working with Jane

The day started with confusion and uncertainty, progressed to more intense discussions, and ended with excitement, motivation, determination and most importantly… a PLAN!
For the first time, I was not just spoken ‘to’ by a presenter, I was truly engaging ‘with’ her as well as all the others along for the journey of self-discovery. There was laughter, debates, honest reflection and even some tears.
Jane is a truly passionate and inspirational motivator with the skills to identify the individual strengths and talents of each of her clients with an ability to create a powerful, lasting change.

It’s so rare that a group of women get together to support and highlight each other’s skills and be vulnerable together. You have deconstructed us – to rebuild a stronger, more able self. All in only one day! Thank you.

As a professional woman, and a parent, I was giving of myself constantly. When I was made redundant, I knew it was time to turn the tables and invest in myself – if only for one day.
