Event details

In the spirit of collaboration and my firm belief that we are stronger together than we are apart, four Wellington women coaches come together to share their wisdom to help inspire, motivate and empower.

This collaboration aims to help inspire and empower women to overcome the challenges we face and be our best.  With a focus on helping our daughters in the process with similar struggles – comparison, self-doubt, authenticity, confidence, social media and technology usage as well as self-care, self-love and resilience to enable us to live a life full of meaning and purpose and be our best.

We are delighted to be supporting Dress for Success through this event, They do some great work which aligns well to our mission of supporting women and to inspire, motivate and empower.  Dress for Success will be there on the day accepting donations, to find out more see their website

Over the last few decades life has evolved and changed for women and we have become more powerful with more opportunities yet at the same time busier and with more worries.  Often we find ourselves still doubting our worth, we still think twice about taking seats at leadership tables, we still lack confidence to take risks and lean in and we still struggle to be what is expected of us, sometimes at the expense of our values, dreams and authenticity.  We want to break this cycle and focus on this one thing we, as women, control and that is our own self-efficacy and we want the same for our daughters.
