Skills Development Day

3rd May 2023


9am – 5pm

Our Workshops

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

Feedback is so important to career and personal development, yet it is often given and received poorly. We’ll walk through different approaches to deliver and receive feedback to allow you to ensure you focus on important development points whilst ensuring we maintain a high level of motivation and positivity.


In order to manage effectively we not only need to be aware of other people’s emotions but also manage our own. We’ll help you develop your emotional intelligence skills so you can handle whatever is thrown at you!


We are usually great at noticing the talent in other people, we don’t often turn the lens on ourselves. We’ll work through your strengths and give you tips to start focusing on them, and even shout about them!


We sometimes fall into the trap of holding ourselves back. We believe aren’t good enough, we aren’t experienced enough, we aren’t talented enough. These are life-limiting beliefs. We’ll stop you from being held back by them so you can excel!

PLUS our brilliant 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”

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

“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.”

“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.”
