Women in Innovation: Building Success - Confidence

Event details
Wednesday, 26 August 2020
14:00 pm – 15:00 pm
This event will be live streamed via webcast
Confidence - what it is, how we can all lose it sometimes and a few things you can do to feel more of it, more of the time!

Having deep inner self confidence and feeling confident in specific scenarios makes life a lot easier and more enjoyable. It helps us get the results we want and also inspires other people to have confidence in us and our abilities.

In this session we’ll be exploring a model from Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) that explains how our experience of life, how we feel and what we do are impacted by the programming we hold in our heads. We will be playing with that model, doing some simple, individual exercises to show you how you can use it to feel more confident moment to moment in situations where you currently struggle. We’ll also look at how you might use the model to challenge some of that inner programming, and go on to develop greater levels of self confidence, and feel more confident more often.

The Building Success webinar series has been designed to provide practical advice and tools for women innovators. The series explores topics ranging from marketing through to intellectual property, funding & finance and HR & recruitment. Click here for more information on the series and previous webinars.



Lorna Clarke, Leadership Coach & Facilitator

Lorna began coaching in 2004 where she worked with a coach in the run up to being promoted to director at Deloitte. This was instrumental in being able to successfully lead the business through a period of significant growth and change including the eventual spin out into a JV with a US firm. This sparked Lorna’s interest in human potential, what makes for great leadership and how we can lead in an authentic and sustainable way.

Lorna’s areas of expertise include: increasing confidence and influence; building resilience and managing stress; developing and sustaining effective work relationships; having a bigger impact as a leader; navigating the transition to leadership or to entrepreneurship.

Mary Ely, Business & Personal Change Coach

Mary is always learning something new and has relied on a natural coaching style and an ability to adapt and build good relationships throughout her career.

She initially qualified as a Chartered Accountant but has led, implemented and supported individual and business change for over 26 years.

Mary has worked locally and globally, across many sectors and functional areas with people from all organisational levels. Helping many people involved in the challenge of implementing business change and technology led transformation deal with high levels of change, complexity and uncertainty. Times where core ‘human’ skills, such as emotional intelligence, leadership and relationship skills, confidence, motivation, resilience and stress management are required to not only survive but thrive.
