"This boost in confidence from FL has helped me be bolder in our vision for the company, to have more faith in my instincts.

It’s helped me see that the things I do day to day for my business are anything but mundane. I’m creating something special, not alone, but as part of a community of inspirational women all across the UK."

"The webinars are fantastic. The range of topics is varied but all useful. I try to log in live to a webinar when my diary allows so I can take the opportunity to ask questions. I’m also working my way through the backlog of previous webinars – yet another benefit of my premium membership."

"Being on the course has given me the confidence to go back into corporate work. I quit my job nearly a year ago, feeling very overwhelmed and not feeling comfortable working in a corporate environment. The leadership course has made me realise

 that what I was missing was some guidance on how to overcome everyday sceneries which can be quite daunting on the onset. I wish I had embarked on this course whilst I was working, it would have helped me massively, I probably wouldn’t have quit my job.

What was very enjoyable was getting to know a group of women who are in similar situations or have an array of case studies to share. It made me realise I wasn’t alone with some of my challenges. Also, having guest speakers at each session was

 also great, I throughly enjoyed the personal branding session, wasn’t snt what I expected!

I am now actively looking for roles, reading recommend material from the course and working on building my professional brand online e.g. LinkedIn. I feel more confident about going back to work knowing I have the forward ladies network to lean on and resources from the course to support.

Thank you very much to Griselda and her dedicated team!"

"I really enjoyed the event. It was the best networking/business lunch/awards event I have attended in the last 10 years. What made it different, was the spirit of the other women I met; all were looking at ways we could help each other, not trying to show off.
A truly inspiring afternoon. It will be a pleasure to join the organisation and I look forward to other events."

“I absolutely love the FL awards. I remember the first time I attended a few years ago and entering the room as the speaker – I couldn’t believe the buzz and the energy. But then again it’s no surprise that so many high achieving women in one room could create an unbelievably high octane, inspiring atmosphere. Every year it gets better and better.”

It is an amazing opportunity to meet with other inspiring ladies and not only discuss the pitfalls or being successful but also really finding some great connections and make true friends that can support you along the way. It's very important in the world of business to find a supportive network and this is what awards are about.”
