“Turning Point” in London with Dr Sam Collins

November 8 - 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Are you at a crossroads?
Do you want some time away from your inbox and Zoom?
Is it time to plan what’s next?

Welcome to Turning Point, a one-day career and leadership development workshop designed to inspire you to create new visions and plans, give you ideas and perspectives, where you are encouraged to have stretching organisational, career and life conversations with a small group of women leaders who will support you long after the event has concluded.

Turning Point is an unplugged experience to help you to reset, refocus, and re-energise (or renegotiate) your goals and dreams. Enduring the slow crawl out of COVID has put us all at a transitional moment, a turning point. This event empowers you to focus on yourself, or your team, business, or community or of course, a combination of all the above!

About Dr Sam Collins

Join Dr Sam Collins, CEO and Founder of Aspire for Equality and leading global voice on women’s leadership, equality and empowerment. Named one of the Top Ten Executive Coaches  and recognised by Her Majesty, The Queen as one of the UK’s Top 200 Women to Impact Business & Industry.

This event is for you if you are:
  • At a turning point related to a job promotion, role change, career shift, business or charity start up, sabbatical, retirement, or a transition in a relationship or your health.
  • Wanting to take a step up in your organisation into a new role and responsibilities.
  • Needing to take your team, business or organisation to new levels of success and you need new ideas and inspiration on the ‘how to’.

  • Struggling with finding that elusive balance despite your best efforts.
  • Receptive to 1:1 coaching and small group facilitation.
  • Wanting to make a bigger impact or difference in organisational or social change.
  • Want to spend time with other like-minded women who ‘get it’.
  • Ready to advance faster in one day than you ever thought possible.

Turning Point is your opportunity to explore the road ahead of you in a safe, supportive, and beautiful setting, with diverse perspectives from leaders of all backgrounds, not just the echo chamber of your own mind, home or office.

In a relaxed and restful setting, Turning Point is your refresher on self-care and well-being and navigating next steps together. Taking inventory together. Getting visionary together. Making a difference together. Gathering clear guidance in order to rebuild and maintain your mojo at work, at home, and in the world.

Benefits you'll gain:
  • Create your career, organisational or business vision.
  • Figure out your purpose in work, life and the world.
  • Network and gain new contacts and support from a small group of like minded women.
  • Examine your values, strengths and the best use of ‘you’.
  • Overcome fears and excuses.
  • Define self care and work/life balance for you and how you can do better.
  • Figure out what's next and how you will make a bigger difference and impact.
  • Brainstorm ideas and new perspectives with others (out of the office).
  • Begin creating a real plan with practical steps to get going fast when the day has finished.
  • Get out of your inbox and to do list for the day.

“This event is a gift to all those women who aspire to a life best lived vs a job well done. You will find connections that are meaningful, realisations that are a catalyst for change and give yourself that space to recognise the power you have … and to use it!”

Melanie Stack

President and Chief Executive Officer of Ideal Protein

“By far the most productive and inspiring course I’ve been on to date and I felt really motivated to achieve my vision and change my way of working in order to do so. It’s the sort of course I think every woman should have access to.”

Sara Willcocks

“One of the most memorable days of my career!”

Samara Alkadhy

"I don’t think it is over-cooking it to say I found it life changing. No messing around, you get straight to the core issues. No awful role plays or endless feedback sessions."

Nicola Browell

“I just wanted to thank you, thank you, thank you for the opportunity for a scholarship and the opportunity to attend such an incredible event. It really has been invaluable for me. I have been able to reconnect with the purpose driven, flamboyant person I used to be and for the first time in years, feel invigorated and excited for the future. I could go on and on! But in short, and I know you won’t mind my swearing, it was a f****** revelation.” SHERYL PLANT, BREAST CANCER CARE

Over the past 20 years of Aspire for Equality, we have found that taking the time away from daily life and your organisation provides new inspiration, diverse perspectives, innovative ideas and an escape from ‘business as usual’ that surpasses an internal course or training event where everyone is from the same organisation.

“We had a really positive experience and we’ve received great feedback from our group of female employees who have participated in events to date. Would I recommend Aspire for Equality? Absolutely!” – Laura Howard, Global Lead HR Business Partner, IS, Astrazeneca

“A massive thank you for an incredibly thought provoking workshop….we now have 30+ women empowered to share some messages and learning in our organisation.” – Laura Simarro, HR Business Partner, Thames Water Utilities Limited

“It’s been a pleasure to watch the fantastic impact your work has had on our group, to watch people develop from what they have learnt from you and to see so many of them grow as a result of being part of your sessions. What you do is powerful. I too have learnt a lot, grown in confidence, altered my mindset and picked up some bright ideas along the way.” – Kathryn Kennedy, Leadership, Talent & Inclusion, The Home Office

“Over 300 female managers and partners have attended the course over time and the feedback has been incredibly positive. Reports of increased self-confidence, clearer vision in terms of building and progressing careers means a greater chance that these people will stay with us. That is very positive for them as individuals as for us as a business. A win:win.” – Mark Sherfield, Management Executive Partner, BDO LLP

“Great content, fantastic energy and a room full of invigorated, inspired leaders. Thanks for your amazing vision and for taking us all along with you. The vibe though Avtrade has changed since I stumbled across Aspire. Today we’re a force for change, inspiration and encouragement to leaders (whatever gender) and to all staff across the company.” – Tracy Keegan, Director of Contract Management, Avtrade Ltd

“Our group of female leaders are more confident, assertive, better networkers and thriving as a consequence of attending your programme. I am now counting on them to pay that forward by supporting, encouraging and coaching other women who are trying to find their purpose, voice and authentic leadership style in their careers.” – Elizabeth Vega, Global CEO, Informed Solutions

“I left feeling re-energised, re-focused and strong! I have already received feedback from other team members who attended the Aspire workshop who are applying their new-found techniques with positive impact and I am confident they will become a network of trailblazing women within our organisation and beyond.” – Diane Smith, Head of Talent, Learning and Development, Babcock International Group
