The time is now.
The calling is loud and urgent.

We are hearing it in every sphere- politics, business, international development, the spiritual community:

"We need more women here!"
  • We know that companies with more women on their boards are delivering a 36% higher return on equity.
  • We know that 80% of the newly self-employed since the “Global Financial Crisis” are women.
  • We know that under a female PM, 30% of the current British cabinet members are women- we’ve a way to go, but it’s improving.
  • We know that FTSE 100 are more likely to promote women onto their boards after 5 months of bad performance. Research which is echoed in political spheres, law, public service and education.

When leadership is tough- we are more likely to call on women than when it’s plain sailing- a phenomenon identified as the “Glass Cliff”.

It doesn’t take much to recognize that things are tough now.
Globally.

We face a global crisis- environmental, financial, humanitarian, such far reaching scope. It will take us women stepping up in ever-greater numbers to help navigate our way out.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

MARGARET MEAD

We women will take on leadership in challenging times.
But we can’t do it alone. Powerful women need support.

This huge opportunity for leadership and impact is greater than it’s ever been.
Yet it’s tarnished. Research of over 1.3 million people shows we women are less happy than we were 40 years ago*.

How do we balance the call to leadership and entrepreneurialism with the calls in a million other different directions?

You may well be pioneering cancer research, launching a vital social enterprise, taking your not-for-profit into 2 new countries, spear-heading the most important project in your company’s recent history…

But let’s face it:

Someone still needs to pay the car insurance, take care of the sick kids, keep up with the social engagements and buy the birthday presents!

How does the successful woman making an impact
also enjoy her own happy, handled life?

Here at One of many™ we believe we have cracked the code on this, and we’ll be sharing all at the One Woman Conference.

The Three Common Challenges Facing
Aspiring Women Leaders

"It would be futile to attempt to fit women into a masculine pattern of attitudes, skills and abilities and disastrous to force them to suppress their specifically female characteristics and abilities by keeping up the pretense that there are no differences between the sexes."

Arianna Huffington

Learn the 4 Steps to Leading Powerfully

Your curriculum designed by women, for women, delivered by women.

Step One: Power

+

Step One: Power

We need a new kind of power to be the leaders the world needs us to be.

A power grounded in collaboration, not competition. Co-operation, not coercion. Replenishment, not depletion.

We call this new kind of power “soft power”.

It’s not the political movement, but a personal place to stand.

At the One Woman Conference you will:
  • Re-discover your authentic power, and how to maintain your momentum without burning out.
  • Discover the Superwoman Myth, and how by trying to be all things to all people we are making ourselves sick and unfulfilled.
  • Appreciate the unconscious biases that shape the actions we take and don’t take every day. There are women in every walk of life making the world go round. However many of the social and commercial constructs that we operate in are built on old foundations. They were laid in a time when women weren’t allowed to vote, work, or do any of the incredible things we now do every day. Discover how this is impacting your choices daily.
  • Discover the #1 mistake most women make in the name of personal and professional development which undermines the results they get
  • Utilise the 5 Women’s PowerTypes™ to inspire loyalty, service and cohesiveness in others, without having to be a ball-breaker. Or burning out.
  • Discover why women are so terrible at making sure their needs are met, and discover the difference between generosity, sacrifice and depletion.
  • Uncover your emotional allergies- those emotions you will do anything to avoid- and how they are guiding your actions every day without you even thinking about it.
  • Let go of emotions or limiting beliefs from the past that have been holding you back from owning your power.
  • Leave with a new sense of who you are, and how to express yourself in the world

Step Two: Platform

+

Step Two: Platform

Over the weekend you will go on to apply your newly re-discovered power to all areas of your life that call for attention:

Your health, your relationships, your career and your financial well-being.

At One of many™ we believe your abilities as a well-rounded leader are in proportion to your level of fulfillment in each of the foundational areas of life that matter to you. It’s hard to be inspiring when you can hardly get out of bed.   It’s a challenge to focus on finishing a project with your love life in tatters.

As women, challenges in one area, show up in others.

This is why we take a holistic approach to building a strong “platform” upon which to stand as a leader.

At the One Woman Conference you will:
  • Build a strong platform for your own leadership, that ensures momentum toward your dreams and the difference you want to make in the world.
  • Discover, define and demonstrate your true value at work. Learn to get noticed for the right reasons and be rewarded accordingly.
  • Identify the key myths that are keeping you busy and overwhelmed and how to let them go.
  • Learn to utilize rhythm and ritual every day to keep momentum and maintain effectiveness.
  • Learn the secrets to finding an extra 5-10 hours per week… time that can be used for starting that business, painting the house, massages or well, let’s face it, sleeping in!
  • Re-establish your financial power by applying the “Energy Outcome Matrix” to your own personal finances and identify simple steps to manage your money better, no matter how busy you are.
  • Appreciate the differences between masculine and feminine energy, and learn to embrace the strong feminine- not the weak and fluffy version we resist.
  • Understand men more deeply, and learn how to communicate effectively with men to get what you need and create mutually beneficial outcomes.
  • Learn a 5 step conversation template for asking for what you need clearly and powerfully.

Step Three: Peers

+

Step Three: Peers

Here at One of many we see that the true power of women is in the collective.

We can achieve so much together which is impossible alone. And nowhere near as enjoyable!

Yet we have a habit of isolating ourselves. Or worse, deciding that all women are backstabbers and fiercely competitive.

 We know that’s simply not true.

When women come together for a common purpose- they are unstoppable. And we need to rise above what the media and pop culture tells us about how groups of women behave. Without a network, when our platform gets shaky- we falter. With a strong network you’ve got the support you need.

When you attend you will:
  • Be inspired by the stories of leadership from members of our panel who share how they have stepped through Imposter Syndrome, Inertia and Individualism to shape extraordinary careers and leave inspiring legacies.
  • Network with a group of generally incredible women, just like you, who want to make the world a better place- you’ll never have felt support like it.
  • Practice “Conscious Network Design” so you have a beautifully architected collective of support to draw on when times are tougher than you’d like.

Step Four: Progress

+

Step Four: Progress

Having re-established your personal power, solidified your platform, and grown your collective of peers- you are perfectly positioned for progress.

Welcome momentum and major impact as you:
  • Identify your vision for your life so you can live each day with meaning and purpose.
  • Utilise the 4 steps to making changes stick, so that you know you’ll be taking the experience from the weekend with you long into the future.
  • Create habits of mindfulness to keep you centred every day.
  • Identify what leading research shows about how talented women thrive, and how to set up your own support systems to ensuring you flourish.
  • Discover the difference you were put on this planet to make, whether it be with your family, your work or your causes- get ready to unleash yourself on the world.

What women say about attending
The One Woman Conference

melanie-street-bayley

"This was the best conference I've ever been to. I have changed the direction of my life completely. I'd hidden behind being a ballsy, feisty woman. But now I've found my authentic self. My work is often aggressive, and tough. But I changed my behaviour. A month after the One Woman Conference our business profits went up 25% and we minimized the work we were doing."
Melanie Street-Bailey
Property Developer and Lettings Agency Owner

anna-taylor

"I was trying to balance work, the kids, the house, my husband. I was run down and looking to make life easier. I discovered exactly that at the conference. I came out feeling lighter, and people kept commenting for weeks afterwards how different I was. My husband thought I'd be back to normal after a couple of days. But weeks later I'm still happier, he's happier, everyone's happier! I can think of 5 women off the top of my head who just HAVE to go."
Sarah Silva
Translator

cat-townsend

"I've never been a girly girl, so I wasn't sure about going to a 'women only' conference. But I'm so glad I did! Actually more than that... my husband is glad I made it to the One Women Conference. It completely changed our relationship, and my perspective on what it is to be female. Every woman and girl should know this stuff!"
Cat Townsend
Founder, The FeelGoodAgency
"The energy in the room was so warm and positive. I wondered if there was a danger it would be anti-male, but that wasn't the spirit of the conference at all. It was a celebration. The content on the Women's PowerTypes™ and Women's Wealth really struck a chord. I love my comprehensive reading list! It was great value!"
Anna Taylor
Senior HR Business Partner, Rolls-Royce

Do something you wouldn’t usually do.

Register now for the conference.

We know we’re asking a lot.  We’re asking you to spend time away from your family, your busy social life, and (heaven forbid) give yourself a gift!

But let’s face it.  If we’re serious about shaking up a plain vanilla life, it means doing things our plain vanilla self wouldn’t do.

When was the last time you made a decision that altered the trajectory of your life? Perhaps imperceptibly at the time, but in retrospect… dramatically.

The chance meeting of your husband because you said yes to a last minute party invitation; the chance opportunity for a new job because you met a new friend on the train; the chance discovery of your talent for pottery because you attended a class you wouldn’t normally have taken.

This is that chance.

We guarantee the quality of this event. If you don't absolutely love it by the end of the first day, come and let us know and we'll happily refund your ticket price. We just ask that you let us know you're leaving, and you'd like your money back.

Partnership

"Here at One of manyTM everything we do, we do because we believe in the Dalai Lama’s declaration that the “Western Woman will Save the World”. A bold claim.

But we believe we have the drive, the resources and the compassion to partner with our intelligent and resourceful sisters in the developing world to really transform this planet.

Some of my greatest role models in leadership have been the unlikely women leaders I met in the villages of Bangladesh. They were mothers, grandmothers, farmers, entrepreneurs and advocates of ending hunger in their community.

For that reason 30% of the profits from ticket sales to this event will go toward the extraordinary leadership development work of The Hunger Project.

You don’t need to choose between investing in yourself, and making a difference. When you invest with us, you do both. Thanks!"

Dr Jo Martin,
Founder, One of manyTM

It’s the mini-risks that make a life tingly.
It’s the little choices that shape your destiny.


This moment could be the beginning of a new direction for your
life.
Or it might not.


After all, Today is just One of Many.
All we ask is you make the choice you’d hope your daughter
(if you had one) would make in your shoes.


Live a little!
