Women’s Leadership: Purpose, Power and Promotion

Note: Development seminars have a charge but our web site is currently showing them as ‘free’ when you go through the booking process. Please refer to the prices below to see the correct charges. We hope this will be resolved asap.


Have you noticed that many successful women have certain traits in common? They possess a clear sense of purpose, tangible personal power or authority and an ability to be noticed and heard. I’m sure you could list any number of successful women who would “tick these boxes”. This seminar is designed to help you focus on these areas and, in so doing, become even more successful in your chosen career. You will work throughout the day to uncover your purpose as a leader and to develop a “power pack” to propel you towards that purpose. The seminar provides space for you to focus on YOU within a supportive environment where you can share insights and experiences with a group of like-minded women. 

Terrific seminar. So much to learn and reflect on. I recommend it to all women in work.

Seminar Outcomes

You will be encouraged to develop a clearer sense of who you are and what you are a leader for. You will go away with greater clarity about your strengths, your personal qualities and how you can tap into different parts of your personality to enhance your visibility and progress your career. You will look at unhelpful thoughts that might hold you back and at strategies for dealing with those unhelpful thoughts. We will explore how to network authentically and with impact and how to improve your credibility and visibility as you navigate your career.

The Content

The seminar focuses on supporting you in three areas: visibility, networking and career progression. During the one-day session you will explore:
  • how to network with authenticity and purpose
  • your purpose as a leader
  • how we lead as women and how we might encounter ‘second-generation’ gender bias
  • how you might unwittingly be trying to sabotage your own success

A follow-up one-to-one coaching session with Ruth or Hilary will offer additional support and help you maintain focus and motivation as you implement your actions from the seminar.
