What our delegates have said


As a result of the programme, I feel more confident and motivated within myself to achieve more within my career. It has helped me to focus on my strengths and really hone in on what energises me.




I highly recommend for women in higher education to take part in this well thought programme. It’s been very helpful, insightful and inspirational. All the women who ran this workshop have helped me to have a clearer vision on how to have a positive approach to my career.
