Our workshops are designed by women for women, to address women’s unique assertiveness needs.

We empower you to be present, visible, self-confident and to take charge. We work to eliminate the stress, frustration and personal pain that comes from not expressing what you really want to say and do. We work with you to find your true voice and have it heard. Our workshops are designed to identify and release what is holding you back, so you can break through to the new, assertive you – a you with more confidence and self-respect, doing things on your terms and commanding the respect of others. Our practical techniques, cutting-edge personal development insights and coaching, apply to your life and business situations, we cover both.
