S2E5: Ani Fhilippova - The Future of Careers


We are stepping into the reality of a 100-year life. How will careers look in the future? How can we make conscious choices to balance personal and professional needs? What skills and support are required for a portfolio career?

My interview with Ani focused on her experiences pivoting into a portfolio career after a high-flying banking career. What was her motivation? What will the future of careers look like? She shared her experiences about experimenting and learning on the go and how critical it is to build a network of mentors and coaches. We also touched upon the future of banking and where it is headed, and what skill will be required to navigate the future.
