We deliver in-depth content modules on Self-Leadership and Leading Others.

The content is customised to inspire and engage, driving action and accountability for every woman that goes through our program and ensuring they have a plan to immediately put into practice the skills learnt and developed over 2 days.

The final day ends with our unique Margarita with a Mentor event – a chance for our cohort to connect with a carefully selected female business leader.

Once you have completed the emerging leaders program you are part of TDC Global community, where there will be further opportunities to attend VIP events, engage in evening masterclasses & connect with your cohort on social media and in person.

First of all, congratulations on being a driven self-starter with audacious goals!

  • When considering self-nomination for our programs, we suggest considering the following:
    Will your company support your journey, not just financially (e.g. enrolment) but also providing structures for you to 1) attend and engage, and 2) implement learnings and grow within the company?
  • We would be happy to speak to your HR team with you to support your case for getting involved or to provide tips on how to have the conversation yourself.

  • Increased benefit of multiple participants sharing the learnings & frameworks with their respective teams using a common language, to then be implemented across the organisation.
  • Greater accountability: we encourage participants to connect post-program and check-in with each other’s progress. Our emphasis on peer-to-peer collaboration supports continued learning, alternative perspectives & keeps accountability alive.
  • Have stronger employee engagement of female talent.

Increased retention

  • The program is designed to develop women at the mid-level of their careers, where the highest drop-off of females occurs.
  • Organisations benefit from increased efficiency, drive and retention as employees feel valued when their organisation invests in them.

Improved attraction of high-calibre female talent

  • Future female talent are attracted to the organisation due to opportunities for development.

Greater advancement of female leaders

  • With emerging female talent staying longer at the organisation and being equipped with the tools to lead effectively, they are more likely to advance within the organisation, contributing to higher numbers of female senior leaders and improved female representation across all levels.

We provide individual and group enrolment rates (for organisations nominating 5 or more talent)
