FrOM YEAR OF ACTION to SCHOOL FOR INSPIRING LEADERS
Empowering a Changing Workforce

She creates programs that inspire employees to be more innovative, confident, successful and happy – and provides a toolkit, framework and supportive community that helps you take action and get results.
The only woman in the room
While facing first-hand the challenges of being the only woman in the room, Erin ended up writing about her struggles and insights in a blog. She ended up turning her blog into a book, Year of Action.
She realized she wasn’t alone
On the Year of Action book tour, she noticed that women kept scribbling down everything she said and would line up in long lines to ask her advice.
She heard story after story of women who wanted to take action in their lives – start a business, go for the promotion, ask for a raise – but didn’t know what to do.
Or even more than that – they didn’t believe they could do it. So, Erin did a test.
The essentials from business school – in a more relaxed, inviting environment
Combining the feedback from women on the book tour, with her experience of being an entrepreneur, techie and educator, Erin created an online program to teach women the essentials from business school – but in a more relaxed and inviting environment.
Safe space to ask questions and practice your skills
She wanted it to be a safe space – something that would feel more like you were having coffee with your girlfriends, than sitting in an intimidating classroom. It was designed to boost your confidence and courage, along with essential business skills.
Today we have blended programs (online with face-to-face components), fully online programs, onsite workshops and webinars.
