Are women encouraged or supported in climbing the career ladder in your organisation?

Do you find that you have to outperform your male colleagues to be taken seriously?

Do you struggle to get recognised, valued, respected?

How to succeed in today’s business world is still a challenge for most women. At CC Consulting we are committed to helping women to succeed and achieve their goals. Whether it’s getting that high flying job, moving up the career path or taking your business to that next critical step, by utilising the expertise of a dynamic business coach who has done it herself is simply invaluable.

What is highflyingdivas?

A dynamic coaching and mentoring network for professional women who are either employed or run their own businesses. No network membership fees. Just women supporting women. Just come along with your question or challenge and a tip to share. You will receive a wealth of ideas and support to help you achieve success from the pooled brainpower of other powerful women with their different experiences and perspectives.

“I really enjoyed highflyingdivas and found it a very valuable experience. The format was excellent: friendly but not fluffy; progressive yet supportive; instructive and sharing. Very good value for money too! I have been cutting back on many events but this is one I?ll try to maintain.”

Jill Poet, ORB
