RISE Empowered Women’s Development Programme
Resilient – Influential – Strong - Empowered
“If you don’t take your moment to shine, someone else will!”
“The Programme has been invaluable and such a joy to be part of. You have been amazing, to be so warm but gently strong enough to lead the course of forthright women, especially on a computer platform, is to be congratulated. I have taken some big take aways so far – things I believe I knew, but this course has shone a spotlight on the small but powerful changes I must make.”
“8 months on from my first RISE session I have gained confidence and self-belief that I have been able to portray."
“Thank you for the informative and wonderful programme. It really motivated me to change my approach and upskilled me in different areas of my job.”

"I wanted to thank you for the RISE session last week, two very enjoyable, and really valuable days, giving us all the time to reflect and re-evaluate behaviours and ambitions. You created a very warm and supportive environment very early on which is not an easy task and a credit to you. You are a wonderful coach and I found you highly relatable! There was a lot of content covered in those two days and plenty for all to spend time reflecting on. I’m looking forward to the next session."
"This is a brief note to say – The RISE workshop last week was wonderful. It was great to be stripped of preconceptions and to be stripped back/vulnerable/exposed in order to highlight areas of growth personal to each of us. It was so different from what I’d anticipated. Thank you for sharing your story too. I’m looking forward to the follow up sessions."
"I’ll keep you posted on my job application. I’ve been shortlisted, so that’s a positive. Your course has been amazing and from a personal perspective and professional I feel I have definitely gained so much from it. I still have a bit to go but I have more awareness than before and I know which areas I need to work on. Will promise myself the time to go through all you have covered and if I’ve got any questions, hope you won’t mind hearing from me."
"Once again, thank you for such a wonderful programme along with your contagious energy and inspiration. I am also really grateful for the app. When I downloaded it, it was ahead of a significant presentation that I had to give to the Leadership Team (8 directors) and even though I’m confident in speaking about the project I’m delivering, I sought additional support through the app. I was particularly drawn to the mediation sessions and replayed one of them at least 3-4 times. By the time I came to the presentation itself, I was ready, well prepared and well-rehearsed and the outcome was well received."
"Thank you for such an energising and inspiring programme. All of the participants are still talking about it and we've had very positive feedback."
"I thoroughly enjoyed the RISE training. They were fantastic sessions and I took so much away from them. Now to go away and identify the priority areas to work on."
"It really has been inspirational. I feel lucky to have been part of it, it's been very helpful. I feel like I've made some valuable changes already. Thank you."
"The programme has been life-changing. I'll use the knowledge I've gained in every aspect of my life."
"Thank you for being so inspirational and helping us on our journey to success!"
"Very useful course for a female trying to be a leader in a male dominated environment."
"I have taken away objectives from the course of practicing confidence and projection in my work environment. It is important to make sure your thoughts and opinions are heard and valued, so I am keen to speak up more and leave a lasting positive impression."
"8 months on from my first RISE session I have gained confidence and self-belief that I have been able to portray in a way that has been recognised by my managers and led to an amazing development opportunity. I am perfectly capable of doing this job, but without RISE I would never have aimed for it nor, I believe, have been offered it by my director. I have used hints and tips from the course at every stage in the lead up to me starting this role and I am certain that, as you mentioned on RISE, visibility has played a huge part in my achieving this role.
So, thank you."
"In 2006, after years of ever more serious depressive episodes, I lost all hope. Since then I've survived - slowly climbing upwards. I enrolled on RISE and realised that although I was surviving, I definitely wasn't living. I still had a ton of limiting beliefs that made that happen. Those are what lead me to put others (always) before myself. To accept the way I allow myself to be treated because I am not worth anything any more. It's hard to change, but I'm aware now and I'm trying. Thank you."
"The course is really powerful and you have done particularly well to deliver the power virtually given the constraints of the pandemic. I thought it was interesting when you posed the question on the celebration call - "do you think that the impact of the course was any less?" - it really couldn't have been any more powerful for me. Thank you."
"I did your training a while ago. I just wanted to say that the training has really helped in the past year or so, it helped me to decide to change careers and find a career path that I am very excited about - your training has really helped with that transition so far."
"At Emerge we are passionate about Women’s Development. There is no question that women are a huge benefit for organisations, however they continue to face many challenges in climbing the career ladder."
"It is fantastic! Really empowering and helps you navigate through any hard times you are having! It is very uplifting and offers tools and guidance to help you become the woman you really want to be."
