Top 5 reasons every you should register for this outstanding professional development and networking event today

I’ve been chatting with a range of women and employers weighing up if the day is worth the investment. I thought I’d post a blog that summarizes the best reasons to invest in your female staff or yourself with Ascend today:

  1. It’s worth it: we have very high standards for speakers who are leaders and experts in their fields (and very exciting ones in August), lots of audience participation and ample amounts of networking time. Not only that, but many of our attendees are sponsored by their employers to attend – so you can be sure your performance and approach to work will improve.
  2. Ascend content is spot on and cutting edge: Ascend days are the only tightly targeted professional development opportunity run by an organisation designed specifically for women in senior management with over 20 development days of experience.
  3. Ascend is participant driven and just keeps getting better: sphinxx assumes nothing – we always gather feedback after every event and this feedback is key to creating our next event and ensuring we are offering exactly what senior managers need to turbo-charge their careers.
  4. Our focus and content is effectively targeted: We survey over 250 senior women in business regularly, to ensure we’re only researching, collaborating and offering the resources and services they need.
  5. Ascend is highly recommended by very successful people:

It was a great experience. Terrific speakers and topics! Definitely worthwhile”. Eva Hucker, Baker & McKenzie, Special Counsel

“Fantastic presenters and extremely relevant content – I took a lot away from each session.  Probably one of the best investments I’ve made for my personal & professional development.  I would highly recommend other women to attend these sessions to develop new skills & meet other fabulous women!” Cathy Reber, VP – Head of Global Business Transformation, American Express

“An extremely thoughtful and informative day that was well worth the investment of time.  The mix of topics and presenters were all excellent and not only experts in their fields, but passionate about their areas.” Trina Sun, Program Executive, IBM

The early bird discount ends on the 30th of July, so you’ll also save $100 if you register this week and receive a guaranteed professional boost. Places are filling fast with highly successful women offering you an opportunity to network, discuss and overcome issues with your peers, who understand the official, unofficial and invisible obstacles in your career.

And yes – even though the program is designed by women, for women, based on feedback from women in senior business roles – men are welcome to attend.   

Or contact us as a manager, HR executive or compliance officer to book a package deal for your staff.
