50ft Women Confidence Workshop

When: 10th of September, from 5.30pm (for a 6pm start) until 8pm

Where: Pearson, 80 Strand, London, WC2R 0RL 

50ft Women is a women’s mentoring scheme that unites inspir­a­tional pro­fes­sional women with talented female graduates. The aim is simple: to equip our young women with the skills, con­fidence and networks they need to gain quicker, fairer and better access to pro­fes­sional life.

Our upcoming workshop on confidence will be led by Emma Reynolds from Catseye Development – leadership experts who are on a mission to help the world perform better through developing its people. The workshop will focus on how others perceive you, your inner confidence and how to maintain a positive and confident state. The workshop will also provide you with the time and space to share your ideas and experiences with other like-minded women.

Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to
