You want the women in your business to step up, stand out, and shine.
We help to make it happen.
The ‘Face Forward’ women in leadership programme utilises the most effective elements from my 15 years of studying, coaching, and delivering training to thousands of people.
We don’t do talk n chalk.
We don’t do useless theories.
And we don’t do training just to tick boxes.
Instead the Face Forward programme takes a holistic view of the issues facing women in the workplace and uses a combination of coaching, facilitation and exercises to:
- Give women the tools and techniques to exert influence and own a room
- Build the confidence, resilience, and positivity to tackle multiple workplace scenarios
- Empower them to stop hiding and take control of their career
This leads to amazing results
- 70% of delegates are promoted within 6 months of programme completion.
- Clients see a 20–30% increase in women in senior leadership positions
- 100% of delegates earn higher ratings from their managers on competencies (including confidence, delegating, feedback, presenting, networking, stress management and influencing skills)
- CEOs, HODs and managers report marked transformations in Face Forward delegates’ executive presence and leadership capability.
- HR departments get constant requests to attend the programme: many of our clients have waiting lists of employees wanting to attend and we get 96% full attendance.
Face Forward can be adapted to differing levels of seniority and is run by either Jodi or one of our experienced associates.
During the 5 (non-consecutive) day programme we cover:
Goal-setting, initiative and work-life balance; understanding the motivations of yourself and others; building trust and credibility as a leader.
Building your reputation and developing your personal brand/image; inner confidence and positive mindset techniques; communicating with impact.
Assertiveness; negotiating passive-aggressive or aggressive responses; delegation, saying no, honest conversations; giving and receiving feedback.
Internal and external networking; making meetings more impactful, understanding group dynamics; presenting and speaking up with power.
Coaching and mentoring others; practical presenting skills…and the Face Forward secret sauce.
Face Forward is a woman in leadership programme that gets you visible results.
And when women show up at their best, your business gets better.

What people say about Face Forward
“This was the most life changing course I’ve ever attended!”
“Honestly the best thing I’ve been on in my 20-year career…wish I had done something like this sooner. Jodi made me look at work-life balance in a whole new way and I finally seem to have things under control. Work is going much better.”
“I suffer from anxiety and found Face Forward more beneficial than years of therapy.”
“I came in a bit sceptical, I didn’t know what to expect. But straight away I was put at ease by Jodi and now I miss the programme…This was the best course I’ve ever been on.”
“I now keep asking myself “what would Jodi say” and then I make myself go for it.”
“I’ve never felt so inspired.”
“BE MORE DOG was very relevant for me… I’ve now been networking up a storm in the business. My profile is so much larger.”
“This came at such a good time for me - I had just started a new role and I was feeling under-confident, but now I’m owning it. Love Jodi!”
“Will we be rolling this out to the whole business? I hope so!”
“Omg Jodi, I was so scared of presenting but after the programme I had to deliver a presentation to 80 key stakeholders…and I SMASHED it. I actually can’t wait to do it again.”
“I went for an interview and they commented my presentation was the most engaging one they saw. Oh, and I obviously got the promotion!”
“My manager noticed how much more confident I am now.”
“My whole team has commented that I’m really different, more open and approachable (I thought I was before!) I can be direct, maybe even intimidating but now I know when to change that and bring people with me.”
“Thank you thank you thank you thank you for sending me on Face Forward, so valuable, not just for work but for my whole life.”
“I kept coming second in the last few interviews I’d gone on…Both my mentor and manager said it was my confidence. After Face Forward I went for an interview and got the role I had wanted for ages. The interviewer called my manager and complimented me on my confidence…Face Forward!”
“I’m so much more confident saying what I want. I realised that the only person standing in my way was me.”
“The course helped me realise how much I’d been hiding. Probably ever since I’d come back from maternity leave…But I started to speak up more in meetings which got noticed. And I recently joined the senior management team!”
“Jodi and Sally were both fantastic! I loved Face Forward.”
“The other day our CEO stopped me in the corridor and asked if I’d been on ‘that Face Forward programme’ I said yes and he got this impressed look on his face, nodded and said “I can tell”.”
“Please send all the men on this course too, they also need to Face Forward!”
“I feel so much more in control. I’m delegating more, saying no, and giving more effective feedback. Honestly I used to avoid all of that…I use the techniques we learnt every day! My red folder sits on my desk.”
“Coming back after maternity leave felt weird…I felt like I’d forgotten who I was but this programme came at the perfect time and helped me find ME again. Or an even more confident me!”
“I’ve learnt to say no more, which means I have more time for what actually matters. I’m having much more impact with my team now.”
“Thank you, Jodi, for giving me the confidence to push myself and apply for the role I’d been thinking about. I got it!!”
“I open the doors to a Face Forward programme and they get booked up instantly. No chasing, no convincing, no ‘we don’t have time to be away from the business’…It’s an HR Managers dream. Thanks Jodi x”
“I’ve done lots of psychometric profiling in the past, but Jodi’s Animal Instinct thing is the first time I actually GET IT. It’s made a real difference to both myself and my team already and the way we communicate.”
