I was lucky to be given the opportunity to go on a temporary project (which wasn't normal for someone in my team to do). I was then lucky that my dad persuaded me to take the project.
Doing so has led me to changing jobs and holding a role that I am very happy with. It has also provided me with opportunities to speak. I will be doing my first solo presentation at a conference in a couple of days.
This is far and beyond where I was a year ago before I happened to have a bit of luck!
