The Power of Play

Transforming Work, Learning and Creativity

An Exclusive Alumni Careers Event with Deborah Frances-White

Deborah Frances-White Direct from the UK and following performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, UTS:Careers are pleased to present ‘The Power of Play – Transforming Work, Learning and Creativity’ with Deborah Frances-White on Thursday 24 November as part of our Alumni Professional Development series, designed exclusively for UTS graduates.

From an early age we are brought up to believe that success depends on hard work and that play is fun but trivial. The truth is play is a process and work is a process and both are useful for different outcomes. If you want to dig a hole, work is what you need. But if you're trying to come up with ideas for a screen play or a new strategy or branding idea then play is a much better bet.

As an award-winning stand-up comedian, executive coach, screenwriter and author, Deborah Frances-White has performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and her BBC Radio 4 series Deborah Frances-White Rolls the Dice recently won 2016 The Writers’ Guild Award for Best Radio Comedy.

Deborah is passionate about helping people in business unlock their personal power, and speaks regularly in the corporate world on confidence and charisma. Her clients include LinkedIn, Facebook, EY, Accenture, PWC, JP Morgan, Barclays Bank and Channel 4. Read more about Deborah here

She also presented a sold-out UTS Alumni event in April this year, so get in quick and don’t miss this opportunity to attend this playful, fun session, where she'll help you unlock your talent for play and creativity!

Learn to:

  • Turn off your censor
  • Get the most out of collaboration
  • Realise how your talent can be accessed if you can turn off your anxiety
  • Remember how much you love to play and reconnect with its wonderful results

Best of all, it’s free for UTS Alumni!
