Event Details

Woman and power

This is not a webinar about improving you, this is a webinar about making the most out of what you have already got!


For female professionals that are serious about their career


Do you ever feel excluded, undervalued, not-recognised, unnoticed or even overruled at work? Or do you just see little career opportunities coming your way?


In that case you probably know those situations where your idea gets presented by someone else. Or you are very familiar with that moment where you look around and suddenly realise with a mix of jealousy and insecurity that all the guys you started with suddenly seem to have progressed faster than you. What has happened?


Is it just you or does it really seem easier for men?

Yes, it really is easier for men, because I believe organisations are designed for men. But what does that mean for women?

Women are different. That’s what it is. Men and women are wired differently. And that’s okay. Yes, it really is.

In this webinar you will find out what you can do with those differences and how you can make the most of them to boost your career progress.

In this refreshing session you will:

  • Discover how being a woman may be hindering you at work and hold you back
  • Learn 6 key areas in which women tend to bring unique value at work
  • Build a true belief in your own capabilities and find out how to get recognised for the contributions you bring
  • Learn career strategies on what you need to do to be valued at work and get more career opportunities coming your way
  • 1 thing to do straight away to start using your unique value effectively


Inge’ s input is designed to inspire female professionals like you to lean in and take your place at the table whilst being true to you. You don’t have to lose yourself on the way to the top.

The webinar will be highly interactive, and give you the opportunity to apply the presented theories to yourself and your situation. It’s not about quick-fixes or simple solutions. It is about being able to truly see your own value, which will grow your self-esteem and help you forever.

You have a true power, once you know what it is, you can harness it in many situations.

Be prepared for lots of discussion, fresh ideas and insights and some truly workable ideas that will inspire and help you unleash your personal power.
