Program Overview

What clients say about the program:

Heather van Munster

"I highly recommend the Women In Leadership (WIL) - Leadership Development Training Program. The facilitators (Heather & Keri) are wonderful, warm, knowledgeable and serve as guiding lights throughout the program keeping us engaged and on task while still creating space for important conversations with the cohort. I feel privileged to have been a part of this program, gaining knowledge and insights to help shape me on my leadership journey."

Aurelija Grabliauskas

"My name is Aurelija and I am thrilled I completed the Women In Leadership (WIL) - Leadership Development Training Program. This is my first leadership program and it exceeded all my expectations.  The program was well balanced and focused on learning about myself, my strengths, weaknesses and emotional intelligence but also how this applies to being a mentor and a coach"

Angela Vieira

"I'm glad I took the Women In Leadership (WIL) - Leadership Development Training Program because it provided an excellent foundation for leadership fundamentals. The program started with exploring our individual selves as leaders and then moved on to how we can use these strengths to develop the skills required to lead others. The course has really motivated me to become a better leader!"

Janice Savage

"The Leadership Development program was an opportunity for self-exploration and growth both personally and professionally. I learned new tools and techniques, had an opportunity to practice them and then was able to implement them in my day-to-day work. 

I enjoyed connecting with other like-minded women in different stages of their careers, which gave me insight into opportunities for my own career growth.


I worked through some challenges during the coaching, workshops and assessments. I was able to identify my strengths and growth opportunities, which helped me to grow my confidence.


I would highly recommend this program."
