More from our
“It’s only week 2 (into the Rise Academy) and I already solved problems I had for years!
I love how easy it is to use the tools and how much energy this course is already giving me!”
"Unlike other career/leadership programmes, Valerie's wisdom, her nifty tools and stories come from real life and real successes. Working with her has empowered me more than any coach or boss I ever worked with."
“So many of us work in a way that costs us DEARLY. Each day and in the long run.
It costs you, and has cost me, in terms of money, career progression and frustration. The Rise Academy helped me realize what was going wrong and gave me the tools to course correct.
I wish I had taken this programme years ago!”
"F***! This course is so good! The lectures are super super high quality!! And the stories from real life plus video plus workbook is a killer combo. The early stuff was "why didn't I do it", then it gets more advanced with mapping the people, Wingpeople, power, the organisations and systems around you. 100% the best decision to join!"
"All the tools and methods we learned allowed me to finally get the job I had eyed for years and always waited to get with no success!"
"Understanding how I can get ahead by being myself was my biggest aha! moment. You normally think you need to be aggressive but that’s just not my thing. I learnt how to rise up by being myself and using MY strengths!
“I didn’t know Valerie at all before registering for the Rise Academy and hesitated whether I should invest time and money. But I loved the idea of Wingwomen so so much that I just registered. Totally worth it! I would never have expected that the Academy could have such an amazing impact on me!”
"When my boss finally noticed and talked about my leadership skills I just smiled and thought to myself: thank god I found this course! Now I know how to get the organisation to adopt my ideas and how to advocate for what is important to me! Thank you to the whole Wingwomen team!"
“I did the Rise Academy during lockdown with two little boys at home and was concerned I wouldn't have the time. I listened to the week’s masterclasses during walks with my baby. Everything was so practical and I could apply all the learnings so easily. I had so many aha-moments! The Rise Academy was so energising, just what I needed at this point!"
"Many years of my career could have been accelerated and so many mistakes avoided if I had taken this years ago! The Rise Academy has been terrific. I came here having very high expectations and you totally exceeded those. This has been phenomenal. Valerie is the most positive person in the world. All your energy is so strong and this experience in the Rise Academy is really shaping me!"
"After working with Valerie, I finally got the promotion and responsibility I had secretly dreamed of. I wish your Academy had existed when I started working!"
"The Rise Academy is not some sort of “management textbook adaptation". But Valerie’s experience and very hands on things that have worked. I love how many examples we worked through. Everything she explains is really clear and concrete and comes from real life. I actually had a chance to work with Valerie. So I know what she shares is actually what she did!"
"The community aspect thanks to the group coaching sessions was really great. The coaching sessions were my highight of the week! I learnt so much from everyone. Getting to see this as a team journey and that all the people, from different countries and sectors, had many shared pains. It made me feel that
I am not alone."
"The mix between the masterclasses & toolbox that I can do at my time & speed is great! And the live sessions with Valerie and the other Risers. So inspiring! I found that it was really well thought through, each 'touchpoint' brought a lot of value for me! I learnt so much and had so many "aha" moments that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Amazing!"
"For me, there is the time before I met Valerie.
And the time after Valerie.
You really left a great impact on me.
And I am forever grateful for that!"
