What people say about the programme

‘It’s been wonderful to meet a group of like-minded people. The sessions are a great mix of learning new tools, reflecting on experiences and thinking about how we can get the best from ourselves, our teams and our organisation. I’ve learnt so much about various leadership styles and how to adapt to the needs of others, which has been a real benefit to our company. I highly recommend the programme.’
Dr Karen Howarth, Senior Director of Clinical Genomics, Inivata

‘I’m really glad I signed up. It’s great to network with like-minded women who share similar roadblocks yet all have very different perspectives and experiences. It led to lots of really interesting conversations and a lot of fun! The course has also helped me start asserting myself in a positive way as a leader, while also not being afraid to delegate.’
Annabelle Roberts, Senior Product Manager - Quality, Abcam

‘I don’t believe I’ve ever carried out so much self-reflection – but I feel it’s completely changed the way I present myself and interact with others. I definitely recommend this programme to anyone who feels they’re at a crossroads in their career and needs that little nudge to take them to the next level.’
Teresa Gorham, QuESH Manager, TMJ Interiors

‘I’ve really benefitted from learning from a diverse group of business women and building my professional network. I recommend the course to both those entering leadership roles as well as established leaders. The programme has armed me with new tools I can use in my everyday leadership going forward. Thank you.’
