This program is designed specifically for emerging female leaders. It deals only with the challenges that emerging female leaders face in achieving their next promotion, such as finding sponsorship and improving senior stakeholder management.
Every program includes several highly successful guest speakers. These speakers are seasoned CEOs and company directors, with significant expertise and advice to share.
Ahead of your coaching session there’s a comprehensive career questionnaire (that we ask you to fill out honestly). In the session we’ll work through the answers and build an understanding of your career strengths and weaknesses, as well as building a foundation for your career plan.
Through the program you may be expected to do up to an hour of ‘extension’ work each week. This work will benefit your current job, and will typically involve research and speaking to others in your organisation.
The program is designed and facilitated by Gillian Fox. Gillian is a highly successful business executive, who has worked at NewsCorp and Pacific Magazines, as well as building several large consulting businesses. Click here for more on Gillian.

In 95% of cases, your employer will pay for you to attend the Women’s Career Advancement Program. As a first step you should sit down with your manager to discuss the program. Before your discussion, we suggest you print:
Your most recent performance review, and
The Women’s Career Advancement Program program information guide.
By specifically matching your development areas with the deliverables under this program (page 4) you can easily make a compelling case for attendance.
We suggest you speak to both your direct manager and HR about the alternative ways the company may be able to support you attending the program.
If there’s no way your employer will fund the program, you can always choose to pay program costs personally. We do offer a two part payment plan to attendees personally funding the program.
As soon as we receive your application form, we’ll send an invoice to the address or email you nominate. Invoices are payable by bank transfer.
You get a 30-day, money-back guarantee when you start the Women’s Career Advancement Program. That means you can try the first two sessions and decide if it’s right for you. As long as you attend all sessions and do the work, we will refund 100% of your payment if you decide that the program isn’t right for you.
We offer a two-part payment plan for attendees who are personally paying program costs. Contact us for more details.
We offer a full refund of registration fee with more than 28 days notice, 50% refund of registration fee with 14 to 28 days notice, and no refund of with less than 13 days notice.
We understand that things happen last minute. Typically we’re able to accommodate you with an alternative session over the next 3-9 months. Contact us and we’ll see what’s possible.
