How to Successfully Pitch Yourself for Promotion


Course Overview

Promotions are a unique type of negotiation in that they are often employee led, and frequently lack a specific opportunity to just happen by chance. It requires strategy and initiative on the part of the employee to effectively advocate for a promotion they deserve.


This half-day online workshop will reveal key insights into why people are chosen for promotion and what you can do to get ahead even if you are working remotely from home.


This interactive and engaging workshop will provide practical steps on going after and gaining the promotion you want.


The workshop is highly interactive, with presentations and individual and group exercises. It is encouraged to volunteer to ask questions and share your thoughts at certain points in the workshop. 


The learning outcomes for this workshop include:

  • What’s motivating you to gain a promotion and why that is important
  • Most common blind spots when it comes to promotion
  • Core competencies of importance when gaining a promotion
  • How to increase your exposure when opportunities are limited
  • Challenges and opportunities of gaining a promotion when working from home
  • How to hold yourself accountable when seeking to progress your career



I found the course very interesting and it gave me an insight in to what is required to make that next step.

My mindset has now changed when approaching a promotion interview and I found the presentation materials very useful and still have them as reference points for future interviews.

I would advise anyone who is serious about getting up the ladder to attend this course.
