This vibrant festival is a day to celebrate 100 years since women won the right to vote, and offers a day of inspiration, self-care and workshops to kick-start a twelve month programme of change.

Are you feeling stuck and looking at ways to overcome personal struggles or gremlins?
Have you felt overwhelmed or stressed with personal or work pressures and wanting to find ways to increase your resilience and balance competing needs?
Have you done a health check recently or are you neglecting your overall well-being and ignoring symptoms of burnout or fatigue?
Would you like a confidence boost and are you looking for ways to discover and explore your passions? 
Are you looking for ways to fast track your business or career and want to learn from others and how they overcame barriers and challenges?
Or do you simply want to be surround yourself with positive women and soak in inspiration?

If you answered yes to one of these questions then this is the place to be on the 10th of March!

Invest in yourself and your happiness, and immerse yourself in meaningful conversations on matters that are important and relevant to you.
