About Vik

Hi! Welcome to my new home!

I'm Dr Vik Turbine. I'm a freelance writer, speaker, blogger, podcaster and online teacher. I live in Glasgow with my family.

Six months ago I left my 10 year career in academia to set up The Learning Curve Collective.

The aim of the Collective is to offer neutral, non-judgemental, feminist support and learning to women seeking life and career change.

Why did I set up The Collective?

I burnt out in trying to 'do it all' in my career - and 'balance' that with a chronic illness (stage 4 endometriosis) and as a mum of 2 young children.

I've turned 40 this year, and rather than a mid-life crisis, I've seen this as a new lease of confidence!

Change is risky, but it can be done.

 

What is the Collective?

The Collective is all about finding your way to change - with the support of others.

You can join by accessing the FREE resources, which are The Learning Curve Collective Podcast & Newsletter (re-launching 2020), and The Change Blog.

You will find useful, accessible content where I share my learning curves from pivoting - and interview others.

You can sign up to receive the latest blog posts to your email on the homepage here.

What else?

I run an online writing course and have a series of downloadable workbooks that tackle the common issues that people tell me impact on their ability to change and progress.

I also coach - with a focus on getting unstuck with writing and academic career shifts. You can find out more here.

Want to hire me as a speaker or facilitator?

Always happy to chat!

Please connect with me over on Twitter or Instagram. I love to chat and connect.

You should expect my other interests to feature heavily too - clothes, coffee, red lippy, feminist politics and all things creativity! You can also follow me on Pinterest.

Come on over & join The Collective!
