Event Details

Learn how to lead and manage with authority and impact in a male-dominated business environment.

As a woman, do you find the climb from mid-level management to seniority an elusive task? Or perhaps you’re looking to break into a leadership role, but the male-dominated industry seems impossible to break into? There is no denying that women in this generation, while the most educated in history, still have to work harder for similar results to their male counterparts. But where do you find the confidence to seize hold of your potential?

Enter Susan Croft, international trainer and communications expert. In this interactive, fast-paced course, she will take you through some of the organisational and personal constraints faced by women when it comes to career progression, as well as focusing on key areas such as communications, career planning and management, and leadership development, to help you be the best version of yourself.

This programme has been evolving for the past 25 years and has been delivered across Europe, Asia and the USA to organisations including Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg, UCL Graduate School, the University of South Florida, BIMA, Unilever and many public forums.

You will leave feeling more confident in your abilities to manage your role in workplaces dominated by men, and with a better understanding in creating a healthy work life balance.


  • Ensuring your voice is heard in the workplace

  • The behaviours women emulate that keep them from getting ahead

  • The DNA and qualities of female leaders

  • Communicating with alpha males, with brevity and impact

  • The nature of management and leadership - what are the differences?

  • Situational leadership and different styles

  • How to avoid getting trapped in ‘Superwoman Syndrome’

  • Women as mentors and coaches

  • Executive presence and image - developing your personal brand

  • Creating your life vision, goals and ventures

Who is this course for?

Female leaders in business, government and non-profit organisations; women aspiring towards leadership positions; and the men who work with them.
