6 delegate Spaces Only.

‘This is quite simply the best of WACL – generous and smart. It’s unlike anything I’ve done before’ WACL member
We all know that the wonder of WACL comes from the wisdom of women of WACL, but it can be hard to ask for advice especially from women we don’t know that well. Peer Mentoring is an initiative designed to enable and empower WACL women to connect, share and problem solve with other WACL women in small expert groups facilitated by a trained WACL Coach and a supportive WACL wing women.
In each session personal challenges are brought to the virtual table in order to receive counsel and advice from WACL peers, helping to reframe, focus and ultimately solve the issue.
The sessions provide a confidential, non-competitive, non-judgemental environment where participants can express themselves honestly and benefit from the advice and insights of a small group of peers, while at the same time increasing their own ability to mentor others.
It also provides a platform for WACL-ers to get to know different people in the club in a personal and meaningful way. Many friendships have been built and endured already.
The numbers are deliberately small to provide an intimate experience of support, sharing and getting to know each other over the four sessions.
“I would highly recommend it to any other member of WACL. I would say that it is one of the most generous experiences of the Club I have ever had. Generous from the point of view that I received unstinting, unbiased and supportive advice from some of most impressive women in our business, and was able to give back in return, which was very satisfying indeed”
“Peer Mentoring is an amazing platform for when you need the input of people who understands the dynamics of our sector, and can provide a unbiased, clear-eyed and supportive point of view. I can honestly say it is one of the most useful things I have done for myself in many years”.

Group work together over the 4 sessions. Sharing, learning and getting to know each other.
For this series, you will be facilitated by experienced Coaches, Rudi Symons and Gemma Atkinson.
