Working women today are better educated and more well qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence. Confidence is one of the critical factors in attaining career success. But at work, it is easy to naturally underplay our strengths and skills at risk of not wanting to be seen as self-promoting or aggressive. How do you find the balance?
Join us on this highly engaging topic as we learn;
- Why self-assurance and self-esteem really matters
- How to appear confident without being aggressive
- Easy confidence boosting tips for everyday situations
- How to become ‘confidence’ conscious until it becomes second nature
This promises to be a fun, informative session, which will take you further in your journey to the top. Please note that this is a women only event.

When & Where
The Career Masterclass initiative was born out of an overwhelming passion and desire to see women attain greater heights in their careers. At Career Masterclass, we believe that knowledge is power and our mission is to empower every woman by providing her with the practical tools she needs to attain great heights in her career.
We aim to achieve our objectives by running a series of live masterclasses where we have open and honest conversations about real challenges that women face on their career journey. At these events we also teach our female attendees key concepts that they can apply in their respective careers to achieve tangible results.
We also host complimentary webinars where we share insights and solutions to specific career issues with our audience. Attendance to our webinars is open to male and female participants.
For us, it is not enough to accept the rhetoric surrounding the limitations and slow progress of women in the work place. We believe change is possible, we believe we can facilitate that change and we are committed to seeing every woman we engage with become the best version of herself.
The Career Masterclass is a Not for Profit Organisation and is run fully on the support and commitment of volunteers to whom we are tremendously grateful.
Our mission can be captured in three words: Empowerment, Growth and Fulfillment. Our ambition is to equip women with the knowledge and practical skills they can utilise in building fulfilling and successful careers.
