A collective of purpose-driven women learning and leading together

Whether it’s leading yourself, a team, a department or a whole organisation, the Lead on Purpose 12-month leadership immersion will give you the mindset, skills, confidence and support to take your business or career to the next level.

Women face unique challenges in the workplace and they also bring unique value and a fresh perspective to any organisation.
Research proves that when you capitalise on the diversity of your workforce, the return on investment is a better performing organisation.

Old-school leadership development programmes no longer serve us as we move into an era of unprecedented change

Our Lead on Purpose curriculum will dive into the future leadership skills needed to navigate through these tidal waves of uncertainty.
Our unique approach to leadership development is based around powerful learning pods, peer and expert coaching, guest speakers from diverse backgrounds and industries and interactive master class/workshops.
