Confidence in Business
A key part of Rosalind's interdisciplinary portfolio is working with issues that affect women, especially issues around confidence, cultural norms and expectations.
In the early Spring of 2015 Rosalind designed, and co-facilitated 2 courses entitled,
Confidence in Business - Keys to Success - Unlock the What, How and Why of your Business
Commissioned by a then local representative of a northern enterprise agency, the brief was to design, deliver and help recruit for a 4 session course, 1 per week. The course was aimed at women in business 1 to 5 years. Beginning each course with an inspirational panel of women in business 5 - 10 years and covering issues as broad as finance, marketing & pr and public speaking & presentations. The courses were a huge success and many of the women involved went on to increase both their profiles and their turnover.

Quotes from women attending Confidence in Business
“Rosalind understands the type of support women need when embarking on a new business venture, which includes but goes way beyond the essentials such as finance, presentation skills and branding. Rosalind is totally committed to bringing people together to help them reach their full potential. Her training, facilitation and Netwalking sessions are effective, memorable and fun. They should also be obligatory!”
Dagmar Smeed, Chartered Marketer & PR Specialist
"A year on and I still refer to the course."
I attended the excellent Confidence in Business course over a year ago. It was a great opportunity to meet with women in similar positions and share experience in a non-threatening environment. The speakers were all excellent; each had something unique to offer. Well facilitated, the course offered plenty of opportunities to talk and share ideas. As a consequence the CIB women’s group still stay in touch and meet over coffee to continue to support each other. All of this was Rosalind’s brain child! A year on and I still refer to the course.

"CIB is a well thought through innovative program, tailored unapologetically to the needs of women.
My experience of co-facilitating with Rosalind was akin to drinking a large Americano with a sweet biscuit on the side. Rosalind is an energising, impactful and strong facilitator who knows how to complement her co-facilitator, and the participants in a room. I recommend this combination to you!"
Anna Bianchi - Co-Facilitator on first CIB Program
"she made it an enjoyable experience for all and I would certainly recommend her expertise"
"I was invited to be a panellist in two 4 week courses titled Confidence in Business, organised & facilitated by Rosalind Jane of Netwalking South West & Anna Bianchi. The role of the panel was to share experiences in business with other women in the early stages of their business life. It was really interesting to hear our different routes in and our lessons learnt; I certainly took away some golden nuggets from the other panellists.
The events were very well organised, hosted in 2 excellently thought out venues and had a perfect balance of informality mixed with professionalism.
Rosalind pulled the two 4 week courses together in record time and created something of real value for the attendees. With her warm, engaging, extremely knowledgeable presence she made it an enjoyable experience for all and I would certainly recommend her expertise in putting together value added learning workshops."
