We've made some changes... and want to keep you posted as promised

We trust that you are keeping well as we each continue to navigate these challenging times. 

As you know, we have been keeping matters under review, while closely monitoring the most up-to-date UK Government and NHS recommendations re: the Coronavirus.  We're aware that regardless of what happens over the next few months, many of us will need time and space to re-engage with life and the 'new normal' as we emerge from lock down.  

With this in mind, we have reluctantly decided to postpone the 4 day option 1-4 July 2020 of the She Rises programme which will now be held 27 - 30 January 2021. The 2-part option currently scheduled on the 4 - 5 September AND 20 - 21 November 2020 will still go ahead.   

If you have already booked or registered your interest, you will have heard from us by now and we are hoping that you'll still be able to join us on the alternative 4-day option dates. 

However, you may wish to engage with our unique approach to leadership development through an interactive online digital format which we have recently developed for smaller groups (see below).

If you have been waiting to see how the current circumstances evolve and have yet to register your interest, please do so as quickly as possible (without the need for payment at present) as spaces will be limited.

Thank you for bearing with us in these extraordinary times, particularly as we are all still unclear what the 'new normal' will look like.  However, we hope, that like us you are more convinced than ever of the need for exceptional leadership and of the value of women's leadership!

So if you're a woman holding leadership responsibility within the church, public sector, corporate, entrepreneurial, academic and charity worlds, we urge you and/or other women leaders in your network to make an even greater impact through your leadership by participating in this ‘life-transforming experience’!

If you (or someone you know) would like to:

  • Develop strategies to overcome self-defeating behaviours undermining the effectiveness of your leadership 
  • Discover and/or refresh your sense of purpose while illuminating your God-given potential
  • Discern your sense of vision and mission (particularly if you are in a ‘season of transition’ in life and ministry/work)
  • Discover ways in which you can make a difference
  • Develop and strengthen your leadership abilities for home, work, ministry and wherever you happen to ‘serve’ in the world
  • Receive support, peer-mentoring and encouragement from like-minded women
  • Encounter God on your journey toward more effective leadership
  • Leave with a commitment to action, accountability and support that will enable you to achieve, measure and review your progress

If you have already attended the 7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership programme, you will find She Rises more interactive, process driven and richer than ever before!

We firmly believe that the best years for women leaders are still to come and we would love, 7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership and She Rises to be part of that ground-breaking journey!

If rise, she rises

and if she rises...

we all rise.

(Inspired by Mark 5:41, Proverbs 31:15, Maya Angelou and Accenture!)

We are living in extraordinary times and we look forward to sharing this extraordinary journey with you and others in your network.
