I joined the CSS for the 1st time in 2010 and it completely changed my life! I was encouraged by a friend to attend as I was at crossroads in my career (and life). I had a vague idea about what I wanted to do but I had no energy, stimulation or confidence to start. The CSS provided me with all of the above. First, in the form of seminars, that were practical and useful in terms of finding a way to set goals, understand the real challenges of starting a business and how to make the 1st step. Secondly, with networking and sharing with different walks of life, I felt part of an amazing, supportive and positive group. The day after that seminar I made some life changing actions! One month later I entered “Women got Talent” contest organized by FEW, and came 2nd. I felt so motivated and fuelled up that 2 months later I was able to launch my coaching company. One small action led to a cascade of other actions and opportunities. I highly recommend this valuable rich day and I look forward to seeing you all there!

I first joined the Career Strategy Seminar 4 years ago and it was the first step on my journey with FEW.
I learned to be a rock star and being in the presence of 60 plus like-minded international women was inspiring, uplifting and full of information. Not only that but the practical advice from the rock star speakers and panelists set me on a journey of increased success, joy at work and in life, and sealed my involvement in FEW. I met some of my closest friends that day, made contacts that opened doors and gave me opportunities, found my coaches and mentors, who continue to support me to this day. Two years ago, I joined again and being a FEW member; volunteered and again got to work with amazing women. I learned so much from that experience, not to mention the diverse range of people who spoke on the day. Incredible value for money, the impact of this day is priceless in terms of the connections you will make and practical skills you will learn.
