Leadership Presence and Impact Workshop

October 15 - 9:00 am - 5:30 pm

Presence and Impact is consistently rated by CEOs as the number 1 most important skill to be a successful leader (over and above intelligence, experience and technical expertise). It is the “wow” factor that sets you up for the next promotion and gives your career that extra boost.

Often described as gravitas, authority and the elusive X factor, presence and impact is one of the greatest keys to being successful, confident and making the maximum difference with others. Yet only 3% of us actually get feedback on their presence and impact and it is often contradictory and confusing, which may be why 81% say they’re unclear about how to act on it.

We are delighted that Dr Sam Collins, CEO of Aspire, recognised by her Majesty, The Queen as one of ‘The Top 200 Women to Impact Business and Industry’  and named as ‘A Woman Shaping the World’ by CNN, will be in the UK to facilitate this one day workshop personally. Dr Collins is an award-winning leadership expert and international best selling author and has been featured on the BBC, CNN, The Times, The Huffington Post and many more.

  • Understand and overcome what stops you maximising your presence and impact with your boss, team, colleagues and others.

"Thank you for an amazing day – I don't think it is over-cooking it to say I found it life changing. I was immediately able to put the learning into practice the following day. Not only that but I have a really strong network of like-minded women now who have all been in touch in the last few days. Thank you so much – you and your team are amazing!"

Over the past 19 years of Aspire for Equality, we have found that taking the time away from daily life and your organisation provides new inspiration, diverse perspectives, innovative ideas and an escape from ‘business as usual’ that surpasses an internal course or training event where everyone is from the same organisation.

“We had a really positive experience and we’ve received great feedback from our group of female employees who have participated in events to date. Would I recommend Aspire for Equality? Absolutely!” – Laura Howard, Global Lead HR Business Partner, IS, Astrazeneca

“A massive thank you for an incredibly thought provoking workshop….we now have 30+ women empowered to share some messages and learning in our organisation.” – Laura Simarro, HR Business Partner, Thames Water Utilities Limited

“It’s been a pleasure to watch the fantastic impact your work has had on our group, to watch people develop from what they have learnt from you and to see so many of them grow as a result of being part of your sessions. What you do is powerful. I too have learnt a lot, grown in confidence, altered my mindset and picked up some bright ideas along the way.” – Kathryn Kennedy, Leadership, Talent & Inclusion, The Home Office

“Over 300 female managers and partners have attended the course over time and the feedback has been incredibly positive. Reports of increased self-confidence, clearer vision in terms of building and progressing careers means a greater chance that these people will stay with us. That is very positive for them as individuals as for us as a business. A win:win.” – Mark Sherfield, Management Executive Partner, BDO LLP

“Great content, fantastic energy and a room full of invigorated, inspired leaders. Thanks for your amazing vision and for taking us all along with you. The vibe though Avtrade has changed since I stumbled across Aspire. Today we’re a force for change, inspiration and encouragement to leaders (whatever gender) and to all staff across the company.” – Tracy Keegan, Director of Contract Management, Avtrade Ltd

“Our group of female leaders are more confident, assertive, better networkers and thriving as a consequence of attending your programme. I am now counting on them to pay that forward by supporting, encouraging and coaching other women who are trying to find their purpose, voice and authentic leadership style in their careers.” – Elizabeth Vega, Global CEO, Informed Solutions

“I left feeling re-energised, re-focused and strong! I have already received feedback from other team members who attended the Aspire workshop who are applying their new-found techniques with positive impact and I am confident they will become a network of trailblazing women within our organisation and beyond.” – Diane Smith, Head of Talent, Learning and Development, Babcock International Group
