  • Inspire Programme

    Over the course of the six weeks we will be going into further details on each of these topics below, learning what it means to yourself and to others in the group you will be with. It will be a safe space to speak openly about such topics and act as a springboard to take action for your life.


    Defining your values will be the fundamental building block in this workshop. The exercise will have you reflect on what you have done in your life and what you find important. Your values will serve as guiding pillars for your next step in life.


    The discussion around hospitality brings together thoughts around the industry and lets you and the other group members share their stories in how they ended up in hospitality, their experiences, passion and niche within the industry. Together we explore all the different paths within hospitality, where they meet and how they sometimes go in different directions.


    The beauty about the hospitality industry is that it is by nature diverse. This workshop will explore our appreciation for culture diversity, what we have learnt from different cultures, our respect for other cultures and how it has impacted our lives.


    Taking advice from others is a great thing, but sometimes we need to listen to ourselves and our own instincts. By looking back at our lives, how we have reacted in certain situations and how we behave will be the pathway we will take to support in answering this question honestly.


    The meaning of family is different to everyone. This discussion will allow us to get insights to how you, and others, define family, balancing a career and family life, and the choice of being a mother.


    Traditionally, women had little involvement in managing personal or family finances. This is now starting to change, and we can be a part of this change. This session will bring awareness to the support and tools out there for women and their personal finances, and to encourage you to take ownership of your finances.


    In hospitality we focus on others, so let's talk about what you can do to take care of yourself. Share and learn about activities that bring you joy, hear about self-care rituals from others and discuss how to incorporate this into your life on a regular basis.


    Some people are natural networkers, others get anxiety of the thought of chatting to people they do not know. Learn about the importance of networking from others, share your experiences and discuss tips and tricks around the subject. Think about who is part of your support system.


    Having covered a number of topics, and having reflected upon things we usually do not think about on a day-to-day basis, we can start pulling things together. Thinking about your strength, ask friends what they think you are good at and see what you learn!


    Review what you have done and learnt, and take it all in. How can you use what you have learnt so far? What are your intentions? How can these learnings and reflections guide you from here? How can you live your life with consciousness?

  • The Logistics of the Programme & Testimonials

    The group workshop programme is a six week programme that includes 12 sessions. The workshops will be held twice a week and online. Each week the workshop will cover a different topic as seen above. The workshops will be facilitated to maximise the learning of each participant.
