At Successful Women, we specialise solely in women’s development. We work with companies to run dedicated Springboard Programmes for their staff and also deliver a number of “Open Programmes” for individual women as well as those businesses who do not have sufficient female staff to run a dedicated programme of their own.

Gill Donnell, our Managing Director and licensed Springboard trainer, received an MBE for her work in supporting women’s development, is the author of the inspiring women’s personal development book Celebr8 Success and is a regular speaker on issues affecting women in the workplace.

We recognise that many of the women who would gain most from attending a Springboard Programme are often those who are least able to afford it and so we operate a bursary fund to help delegates who are self funding or work in the not-for-profit-sector.

Individuals and organisations can help make a difference to women in their local area by sponsoring a specific programme or contributing to the bursary fund.

Comments from Springboard participants:
“Attending the ‘Springboard’ event organised by ‘Successful Women’ was a truly life changing experience. It has encouraged me to take more responsibility at work and to take control of my home life.”

“It’s inspiring and insightful for women at any point in their lives – working or not”.

“Dear Gill, a heartfelt thank you for sharing the Springboard Programme and for showing me how to achieve my full potential.”

“Gill, your humour and your down to earth attitude always makes me smile and lifts me. You have an obvious strength of character, both personally and professionally, but a soft and sensitive nature that shapes who you are. Thank you for sharing yourself with us and for encouraging and motivating me personally.”

If you are interested in running an in-house programme for female staff in your organisation or would consider sponsoring a programme or number of delegates in your local area, visit our website for more details. You will also find dates of forthcoming Open Programmes on the website.
