Abadesi and Natalie's work is founded on proven research and techniques focused on eliminating unconscious bias, building confidence, and reading and sending signals effectively.
Within a month of attending the July 2016 sessions:
- one attendee negotiated an £8k pay rise
- one attendee secured four job offers as a freelancer
- one attendee launched her own business as a first time founder
"I found this session truly empowering, it allowed me to walk into interviews with confidence and a solid understanding of what was expected of me. After this workshop I had four successful interviews, I can genuinely say that it was a result of the interview techniques I learnt during the session."
"It's not a coincidence that I attended the workshop and within 2 weeks I had made an £8K pay rise at work. This helped me get my shit together."
"What I loved about the session is that it created a safe space to chat about somewhat taboo topics (network, updating your resume, etc). with like-minded women. It's not natural to ask friends / colleagues / mentors for guidance on these topics and navigating these topics can be isolating -- the session filled this void."
What we provide:
Printed activity sheets, resources to take home, organic food and drinks for the refreshment break
