Are you a woman in leadership looking to increase your confidence and executive presence?
This programme is especially for you.
Why is Gravitas important for women?
Women only make up 19% of boards and represent only 22% of senior management teams.Confidence is one of the main barriers to success, with 83% of women struggling to make their views heard.
Communicating with credibility can be a challenge for women in senior positions. Raising your profile, commanding respect and dealing with difficult people aren’t behaviours that come naturally. Not doing so can have a seriously damaging effect on your career.
Gravitas is a crucial skill for business success and the catalyst for senior positions. In a competitive environment, women with gravitas lead better, build stronger relationships and get better results. Through the Gravitas Programme, we’ve worked with thousands of female leaders across all sectors. And although expertise is vital, what becomes more valuable the more senior you get is an authentic voice that people want to listen to and an authoritative message that lands. In response, we’ve developed the Gravitas for Women Programme, a two-day event especially for women who want to smash through barriers, exceed expectations and achieve excellence in all they do.

What people say
“This was the best development course I've ever been on. Antoinette is an inspirational speaker and coach. In her masterclass, she provided all the tools and tips needed to communicate with gravitas. I've already put many of her tips into practice. I came away with a clear reminder of what my personal purpose is. Thank you Antoinette for an amazing day! Andrea Plasschaert, Senior Global Communications Manager, PwC
“Antoinette Dale Henderson is an exceptional coach and speaker. Her authentic, inclusive and very practical approach are a fresh take on leadership and managing change by accentuating gravitas. Very engaging, people at different levels can benefit from her toolkit, right from early career professionals to experienced leaders.” Reetu Kansal, Senior Business Analyst, University of London
“As part of our women’s programme we asked Antoinette to deliver a talk on ‘Gender Equality and Confidence in the Workplace’ in April this year. With 50+ attendees from across our London team we listened as Antoinette shared practical examples and exercises we could all incorporate into our daily lives. We’re already seeing the impact of this amazing evening and I’m really hoping Antoinette will be able to come back and support us again.” Charlotte Halls, Product Manager, Audio Network
“The programme has itself been transformational for my leaders and my business, and has undoubtedly been the catalyst and the stamina behind our success. At an individual level I’ve seen people with low self-belief truly blossom into confident, capable and compassionate leaders, with a level of finesse that many would envy. And at a team level I’ve been bowled over by the shift towards taking collective ownership, innovating collaboratively and reaching a level of self-sufficiency I’ve rarely seen in leadership teams.” Jack Richardson, Deputy Director, Government Recruitment Services, Cabinet Office
