We are delighted to announce that our next masterclass will be led by Viv Groskop, journalist, radio and TV broadcaster, author, comedian and all-round supporter of women reaching the top!
In our informal and highly interactive online event, Viv will bring her usual blend of humour and almost frighteningly accurate insight.
She will be discussing:
How to reinvent yourself
How to support yourself as you support others
What ambition looks like in a post-Covid age
Whether it’s OK to be thrusting, visionary and idealistic at this time — or is that just opportunistic?
How can you find help and inspiration?
How can you stay collaborative and team-focused if you’re working from home?
How can you reshape your business if the pandemic has left it shaky?
And how do you get back on your own campaign trail if redundancy has derailed you?
Viv is the author of How To Own The Room, one of the best books you’ll ever read as a woman in business.
And she hosts the podcast of the same name, in which she interviews inspirational women about their careers and the paths they’ve taken. Her guests have included Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, Meera Syal, Nadiya Hussain, Catherine Tate, Trinny Woodall, Julie Andrews... the list goes on... and each episode is not only full of interest in itself but also packed with helpful tips to help women reach full potential in our careers.
Earlier this year, Viv’s new book, Lift As You Climb, was published by Penguin Random House – and once again it’s a game changer. Viv looks at the art of female ambition and how it is possible to help other women as well as yourself, without having to take a step back to the 1980s when emotion was for wimps and to get ahead you needed a Filofax and shoulder pads.
Lift As You Climb is full of clever insight and advice, it is laugh out-loud funny in places while wincingly accurate in others.
I recommended the book to a friend who used the approach Viv suggests in a request for a pay rise. My friend walked out with a 20% increase. True story – and when women start helping other women so they benefit financially, and that is where change really happens.
