Women in Leadership:
Want to increase your confidence and visibility?

Women only make up 19% of boards1 and represent only 22% of senior management teams2. Confidence is one of the main barriers to success, with 83% of women struggling to make their views heard3.

Communicating with credibility can be a challenge for women in senior positions. Raising your profile, commanding respect and dealing with difficult people aren’t behaviours that come naturally. Not doing so can have a seriously damaging effect on your career.

What is the Gravitas Programme?

Gravitas is a crucial skill for business success and the catalyst for senior positions. In a competitive environment, women with gravitas lead better, build stronger relationships and get better results.

Through the Gravitas Programme, we’ve worked with thousands of female leaders across all sectors. And although expertise is vital, what becomes more valuable the more senior you get is an authentic voice that people want to listen to and an authoritative message that lands.

In response, we’ve developed Gravitas for Women, a two-day event especially for women who want to smash through barriers, exceed expectations and achieve excellence in all they do.

The programme is led by Antoinette Dale Henderson, award-winning speaker and author of Leading with Gravitas who has 25 years’ experience in corporate communications and now works exclusively with executive teams and boards.

Founded on the unique Gravitas methodology, the programme addresses the real challenges faced by women as they progress up the career ladder.

Women who come on the Programme have a memorable, some even say life-changing experience that will immediately increase their assertiveness, executive presence and impact. Organisations which invest in the Programme see increased engagement and retention of their female talent, stronger, more resilient leadership, a more inclusive pipeline and an enhanced corporate reputation.

  • Articulate your vision with conviction and authority
