THE CAREER MUM

'Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up.' Brene Brown

I am Amanda Newman. I have had a successful 20-year IT career in one of the largest companies in the world. During that time, I have had 4 children including identical twin boys. As a so called ‘Career Mum’ I want to help women embarking on or during their own journey through the many challenges, decisions and the rewards.
The Career Mum will provide a unique mentoring resource for you, but also a resource for companies looking to embrace, understand and develop their vast network of talented women.
If you want to join the discussion, please join the group https://facebook.com/groups/TheCareerMum. I look forward to hearing from you.
