Skills Development Day

5th DecemBER 2023


9am – 5pm

Our Workshops

We will be running 4 workshops throughout the event focused on career and personal development. 


Developing self-confidence is a life skill that can assist us having a growth mindset and building resilience. We’ll discuss what confidence is, what it looks like, and more importantly, the steps we need to take to build it.


TA is the practice of understanding our own behaviours and emotional state so we can communicate effectively with others. Part of this is also understanding the behaviour of stakeholders so we ensure we maximise the success of our communication.


We all want to make great decisions, however there are other things to consider when it comes to our choice. We’ll cover your appetite for risk and how bias can impact our decisions. We’ll also go through how we can communicate our decisions clearly and powerfully.


Using energy management techniques and meditation, we’ll walk you through a holistic process of managing your energy and emotions so you can tap into those of your teams and stakeholders to make you a more effective and connected leader

& our brilliant and inspiring keynote speaker TBA soon!

We believe that feedback is the best barometer of a successful event, here we have a few comments from the amazing women who attended our previous Skills Day……

“Lots of practical skills I can apply to help with my personal & professional development”

“I love coming to Yes She Can development days, I meet like- minded people who want to strive to be better and progress in their own right and these development days really help me and others do that. I have met some great peers and mentors that I can look up to. Thank you for that!” – Emily Booth

“It was amazing to spend the day with a group of inspiring, positive women all supporting each other”

“The sessions were very engaging and valuable but the most powerful part of the day for me was sharing the experience with a group of people who made me feel comfortable and allowed me to share thoughts without judgement.

We heard each other and supported one another and this was very uplifting and inspiring – it was actually just what I needed!” – Georgina

“Thank you for providing a unique environment to learn from industry peers & inspiring leaders”

“Everybody should do one of these days/sessions once a year! :)” – Jules

Every session was inclusive, and every leader was confident and presented extremely well – I felt on the same level!”

“Very good day, really enjoyed it. I laughed and cried! Incredibly useful day.” – Beth

“Really interesting range of speakers plus ways to keep engaged. Didn’t find myself flagging and I’ve taken so much away that challenges my way of thinking.”  – Becki

“The event was great, inspiring, and has given me a new lease of life to go and work on my goals.”

“It opened my eyes to how as women, we are powerful!” – Danielle

“I have taken away (from the day) courage, not confidence – and it’s completely made everything make sense.”

“This was my first ever Yes She Can Skills Day and it certainly won’t be my last!

I came away feeling more confident in my abilities than ever and wouldn’t think twice about recommending it to others. Thank you again for such a great day!” – Georgia Buckley-Ryan

“All speakers provide you with amazing skills to use and it’s invaluable to share with others.”

“The day makes you think about yourself, which is something most people don’t do enough of. Therefore, if you want to put you first then this is the course for you.”

The best part was that all the trainers gave use tools to deal with challenging situations and allowed us to be flexible to best suit our nature and compliment our strengths.” – Laura Mills
