About the Event

For professionals who want to take control over their careers

Professional women are often told they ought to show ‘more confidence’ or be ‘more self-assured’. However, the kind of confidence these professional women are supposed to show is mostly not suited to the women in question.  As a result, a surprising number of competent professional women hold themselves back for lack of ‘confidence’.

True confidence can only grow when it is based on confidence in yourself. That means the expression of confidence will have to be in line with who you are. Confidence is about confidently being you. The world wants you, and nobody else but you!

The online course Confident @ Work shows professional women how to be confidently themselves and reach their full potential.

  • Learn how to communicate confidently, how to be seen and heard, and gain influence
  • Easily navigate the hurdles of being (too) friendly and being (too) direct. Find the middle ground – while confidently using your authentic style
  • Better negotiate the everyday interactions and broaden your ability to handle different situations and difficult people
  • Feel confident in your ability to get the results you want


  • This course gives you practical advice you can act on immediately.
  • Comfortably change behavior that’s holding you back unnecessarily. Learn to build on your strengths. Discover how to be confident being you.
  • The result is less stress, more confidence, and more natural (and accepted) authority.
"I would definitely participate again in this course anytime. It helped me deal with difficult situations, make myself better heard, and identify when I fall back into the habit of overthinking. I appreciate the practical exercises, the hints provided to us individually, and the very inspiring online meetings with interesting ladies working in the sustainable finance space."T.E., participant of our first Confident @ Work course
