Event description
Inspiration and advice on achieving your goals, fulfilling your true potential and thriving in all areas of life

About this Event

In recent times, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted each and every one of us in some way. The Rising Festival stands tall and strong offering a community and a sense of belonging in a time that is much needed. We are a community without boarders which is why we are delighted to announce that the Rising Festival is going virtual in March 2021, taking place across 5 days starting on Saturday 6th March ending on Wednesday 10th March.

We would like to invite you to attend the Rising Festival and join us in unity to celebrate how far we have come, as women and as a society working together to achieve gender parity and to celebrate the achievements of women. Throughout the festival access interactive and awe inspiring experiences designed to empower and inspire you to achieve your true potential, and to create a career and life you love.

Invest in yourself, your wellbeing and happiness, and thrive. Gain inspiration, build your confidence, and immerse yourself in meaningful conversations on matters that are important and relevant to you with women who want to see you succeed.

Mark this annual celebration in the company of women from all walks of life across the globe. Hear from speakers who have fought against the odds, displayed resilience and humility, and learn from their personal experiences on how they overcame challenges to achieve great heights.

This is your chance to make a difference in your life and you’ll get access to inspirational keynote speakers, interactive open conversations, fireside chats, mentoring, engaging workshops and masterclasses that will challenge your thinking and provide you with a blend of actionable insight and positive outcomes to help you to create a more happy and fulfilling life.

Going virtual allows you to make more connections and access rich insights from speakers and participants who you would never come across in daily life. With over 30+ sessions and 40+ speakers sharing their personal stories, tips for success and thoughts on some of the most fundamental issues facing women today, you’ll leave the festival full of ideas, wiser and with a fresh perspective on how to flourish in the face of the competing demands and pressures of modern life.
