2020 Women's Leadership Circles Participant

What Past Participants Have to Say


Women's Leadership Circles are your opportunity to invest in a personal and intimate look at building the business and the life you want.

A Leadership Circle is a half-day, once-a-month for 5 months training and development opportunity with an aligned group of powerful women business leaders. The sessions are “retreat-like” and each participant also receives a private personal coaching session with award-winning coach and trainer Di Strachan.

“We envision a world where women in business are deeply supported, aware, and inspired to run their businesses and lead in their communities with courage, awareness, capacity, and effectiveness.

We believe women have the capacity and innate wisdom tocreate the positive change they want to see - in themselves, their businesses, and their communities. Women's Leadership Circles are helping you to build that world.” - Di and Trish

Frequently Asked Questions

The 2023 Women's Leadership Circle schedule is Tuesdays from 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm.

The dates are as follows:

  • March 14th
  • April 4th
  • May 2nd
  • June 6th
  • June 27th 

To withhold the integrity of a small group intimate cohort, space is incredibly limited. (We only select 15 participants per cohort.) 

Due to that matter if you can not carve out the half day once a month to participate and concrete it on your schedule we ask you to consider waiting for a future year cohort.

That's why we're giving you MONTHS of advance notice to carve the time out of your schedule! 

One of the most powerful aspects of these circles is the connection with other power women business leaders, creating the safe space to grow together.

So as much as we would love to welcome all we do have eligebility guidelines of our participants. 

Participants Must:

  • Be a business owner or high level business manager for over 1 year WITH a net business income.  
  • Be willing to participate in all 5 of the circles sessions.
  • Be highly interested in your personal development and growth. 

This program through other for-profit entities sells for well over $2,000. Because of our commitment to fundraising for our business owners and community we are offsetting the majority of this cost. 

Each participant's cost share is $200 for the full 5 month program that includes individual one-on-one coaching.
