Your year of career courage?

Women Up! Your 2-day personal and career development course – Book now

Thanks to funding from The Education and Training Foundation  we are offering  our new “Women Up” course to help you build on what you achieved last year and develop leadership presence and the boldness and courage to be your authentic self as a leader.

Join us in London on Friday 7 February 2020  (day 1) and  Tuesday 17 March 2020 (day 2)

Aimed at women on the career ladder to senior and executive leadership, this is a practical course in which you will find solutions and strategies that can help you get to where you want to be. It’s a rare and precious opportunity to have time out to think about yourself, your aspirations, your ambitions for progressing your career, and how you can become the kind of leader you want to be.

Working in a safe space, this interactive workshop will provide you with the opportunity to recognise and own your uniqueness, to rehearse and practice a personal narrative about who you are and what you offer, and to be able to hold powerful conversations about your personal and professional ambitions and aspirations.

From senior women role models who will share their personal journeys to success and leadership to becoming part of a network of support, you’ll learn how to deal with self-doubt, develop strategies for wellbeing, and find out about other professional development opportunities you can pursue.

Book your place now on the ETF website and make 2020 your year to break through
