Futureproof Your Career: Become The CEO Of Your Life

You are the CEO of your career

For far too long, we've been fed the narrative that our career is something that happens to us, instead of it being something we can intentionally craft.Not only this, but we're living in a time where AI is forcing us to radically rethink how we approach our careers.I'm here to tell you something that will completely alter how you think about your life: you are the CEO of your career.You've probably ended up here because you realise that you need to change something.Once you realise that you have the agency and autonomy to craft your own path, we will turn you into an opportunity magnet.It's time to take back control of your career and build the Company of You.Welcome to the Futureproof Fellowship.

Where we'll take you

The age of AI has massively broadened the possibilities for your career. But our education system hasn't kept up.

I learnt the lessons the hard way, so you don't have to.

Over the course of this 4 week fellowship, we'll take you on a journey from feeling lost, disillusioned and uncertain of your next steps, to feeling empowered, values-aligned and excited to make life-changing career decisions.

Nikita is one of the most original thinkers I know. She is uniquely connected with the challenges surrounding the future of work and the key skills that the workforce of tomorrow needs. Her Futureproof curriculum is truly innovative and offers a radical reframe for people in the workforce wanting to gain career and financial independence.

There is no-one I would trust more than Nikita to equip the next generation with the skills they need to futureproof themselves. Many people understand AI. Others understand education. Others understand the future of work and others understand economics. No-one understands how they all intersect like Nikita.

What you'll learn

The Futureproof Fellowship offers a holistic approach to career design that equips you with the mindset, skills and strategies you need to thrive in a changing world.

1. Identify Your Values

In the business world, every company's culture and direction are shaped by the founder and CEO's personality.If the CEO doesn’t have a great personality or has little self-awareness, it can be bad news for the company.On the flip side, when you work in a team where everyone is super aware of their values and are also mission-aligned, magic happens!The same is true of your career.


2. Craft Your Theory Of Change

You have about 80,000 hours in your career. This makes your choice of career one of the most important decisions of your life.But it's definitely not a one-time decision. Now you have your values, you need a North Star.Your Personal Theory of Change will serve as a guiding light, directing your actions, and empowering you to create a profound impact on the world while staying true to your values and aspirations.


3. Refine Your Unique Knowledge Stack

There is no-one on this earth who has the unique combination of motivations, skills and experiences that you do.No one can compete with you on being you.Just like every successful company has a Unique Selling Point (USP), you too have a Unique Knowledge Stack. It's your job to figure out what unique value you can add to the world and then go out there and make it a reality.


4. Build Your Toolkit

In a world where AI will play a significant part in every workplace interaction we have or project we do, we must challenge the notion that skills are everything.What truly matters is your ability to become a learning machine.The future demands adaptability and constant growth, and that's where your learning toolkit comes into play.Certain specific skills will always have a place, but your capacity to learn, unlearn, and relearn will make you irreplaceable.


5. Do The Job Before You Get The Job

There are always 3 ways to enter a room you want to be in.The first door is the main entrance, where everyone lines up and waits their turn to get in.The second door is the VIP entrance, where only a select few are allowed to enter.And then there's the third door: the unconventional, unexpected way in that most people don't even know exists.Learn how to deploy the Permissionless Apprentice model to showcase your value: identify a problem, build a solution, share it with your dream team.


6. Create A Portfolio Of Leverage

You've been told you have to follow a path. Instead, we encourage you to build a portfolio.Just like an investment portfolio, by creating a portfolio of projects that demonstrates your Unique Knowledge Stack, you'll have a tangible asset that compounds in value over time.


7. Make Your Value Visible

Just as every company needs a brand, you need a reputation that sets you apart from the crowd. Building a personal brand on a channel of your choice is the key to making your unique value visible to the world.Think of your brand as your digital storefront, showcasing your talents, skills, and experiences to the world. Just like a well-curated shop window attracts customers, a thoughtfully crafted brand will make you an opportunity magnet for employers and opportunities.


8. Cultivate Your Personal Board Of Advisors

No successful company is ever built alone and no thriving career is crafted in isolation.
The simple fact is: you’re not meant to have all the answers.
Every company has a Board that offers them guidance, connections, support and accountability when they need it most.Learn how to cultivate a network of high-calibre mentors, sponsors and advisors to provide guidance and support as you Futureproof yourself.

Who's behind this Fellowship?

👋 I'm Nikita,
your facilitator

I'm a creator, consultant and entrepreneur on a mission to futureproof individuals and organisations for a radically different world of work.Ever since I was at uni, I've hated boxes and defined pathways. Our education system discourages us from questioning so many fundamental assumptions about work, money, meaning and life.I'd had enough. I started building my portfolio career.Fast forward to today and I've worked with everyone from LinkedIn to the CTO of the UK government to MSc students at the UK's top universities and some of Europe's most successful founders.This fellowship condenses the learnings of 7+ years of being a portfolio careerist into 4 weeks. I learnt these lessons the hard way, so you don't have to.
