Springboard logo, white lettering to purple background

The Springboard Women's Development Programme enables women to take more control over their own lives and careers by identifying clear, practical and realistic steps that they want to take and developing the skills and confidence to take them. Springboard has been used successfully by over 230,000 women in over 40 countries.

Springboard is for women of all backgrounds, ages and stages of their life and combines the attendance of four full day workshops, completion of a workbook, networking and co-coaching. Each participant will set their objectives on the first workshop, which can be to do with work or their personal life. We've been hearing from those who have been on the programme:

Springboard: "building confidence in my new role and myself"

Springboard: "a support mechanism in my professional and personal life"

Springboard: "a free exchange which is refreshing and liberating"
