Enhancing your Career as a Food Safety Professional

What makes a successful food safety professional? Many will say ‘technical competence’ as a minimum but what about other complimentary skills and personal attributes? The challenge for food safety professionals today is maintaining not only the technical competence from their initial studies, but to actively improve and enhance the ‘not-so-obvious’ skills and attributes over the span of their career.

Watch this presentation as HACCP Mentor demonstrates how committing to a path of ongoing learning and professional development contributes to career success.

Find out how to identify your current gaps, recognise the value of personal improvement and implement a career plan to help you become the ultimate food safety professional.  The session will also provide tools and takeaways to help you succeed regardless of your current role, or your food safety, quality or compliance responsibilities.
