Imagine an industry where women were encouraged and supported to go after the “unrealistic”; where we dreamed big but strived less because we utilised the power of women in community.

In this session, we’ll dive into the power of “unrealistic” and why it’s the catalyst for the unprecedented. Participants will explore their versions of the “unrealistic”, narratives holding them back, and how to break them down. Then, by sharing these visions, we’ll tap into the strength of community and find areas of synergies with others to kick-start these journeys. Leave with a new north star that deeply excites you and people who want to journey with you.

Together, we’ll unlock the joy of embracing the “unrealistic” and use it as a catalyst for unprecedented personal and professional growth.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Craft your own ‘unrealistic’ dream
  • Reframe limiting beliefs to drive progress
  • Build connections with like-minded individuals
  • Commit to actionable steps with newfound support

This session is for…women of all career stages who aspire to break boundaries, support one another, and collectively redefine what’s possible. Join us on this transformative journey of ambition and empowerment.
