Inspiring Women Programme

Workshops running throughout the year - please see News Page or contact us for scheduled dates

NEW for 2013! Odyssey are excited to launch the brand new 'Inspiring Women Programme'.

Designed for women with an entrepreneurial spirit, who wish to live life in a more fulfilling way.

Are you already in business, or thinking of starting a new venture?

Perhaps you are a woman working hard in your profession or managerial role, wanting to make the very best of your talents?

Or - If your 'mojo's' gone missing, we can help you get it back - and some!

Our range of lively, interactive and challenging workshops will help you to discover the real you.

  • Find new ways of creating success
  • Overcome barriers that hold you back
  • Feel more focused
  • Be energised and motivated
  • Discover and celebrate your unique qualities
  • Feel more empowered than ever before

Our first series of 6 workshops are available to book now, but places are strictly limited - usually only 6 Inspiring Women per workshop. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. (If you are one of a group of Inspiring Women, why not have a workshop exclusively for your members?)
