Our flagship programme is the public Leader’s Voice programme specifically designed for senior female leaders driving change in their company, industry and beyond.

Over 8 months, with a small, hand-picked group of top performing women from a variety of sectors, you’ll develop the speaking skills, content, confidence and presence needed to rally change.

Along the way you’ll experience life-changing activities including a trip to Speaker’s Corner and the opportunity to speak at our Game Changer’s Summit at the House of Commons (or similar).

This is one of just a handful of opportunities to work personally with Ginger’s Founder, Sarah Lloyd-Hughes who is a well-known speaker and advocate on women’s visibility.

Places on the programme are by-application only and we select participants based on their capacity to drive meaningful change around a tangible vision.

To enquire about a place on the Leader’s Voice and for upcoming dates, please get in touch here.

The Leader’s Voice is also available in-house for female leaders and mixed groups. We can tailor the content to echo your business priorities.

What do we cover?

Clarity of Vision

  • Envisioning future success for your organisation and for yourself as a leader.
  • Articulating with certainty; what do I want?
  • Decision making as a visionary leadership: purpose and conscious choice, rather than as a follower: being led by external pressures and priorities.
  • Prioritising and making space for the vision to become a reality by saying ‘no’ to the non-essential.

Resonating with those you seek to influence

  • Sharpening the influence and resonance of your communications to key stakeholders
  • Understanding different personality types and their communication preferences.
  • Identifying and working with a particularly challenging stakeholder group you struggle to influence, your ‘Nemesis’.

  • Increasing presence, impact and ability to convince others of the importance of your perspective.
  • Boosting gravitas, confidence and credibility.
  • Remaining centred, calm and comfortable, even in high pressured scenarios.
  • Testing your conviction / believability as a communicator and receive feedback.

Storytelling for change

  • Developing a specific headline story that draws attention to your work.
  • Story-telling best practice.

  • A powerful and intimate network of senior female alumni, who include CEOs, senior corporates, public figures and leaders of charities.

The speech coaches on the Leader's Voice programme were excellent. I feel proud of the progress I've made over the course of the programme in developing my storytelling and presentation skills.

Baillie Aaron Baillie Aaron Spark Inside

I've learnt so many things, not just about public speaking, but about myself. I've really thought about what I want & what causes I really care about. I truly think it's a life changing experience... & a really fun one as well.

The thing I'm most proud of, was going to Speaker's Corner in gale force winds & the pouring rain & standing on a very wobbly step ladder & actually speaking in front of hecklers for more than 20 minutes. It was great to be heckled - it helped us all strengthen our arguments because we knew what the challenges would be.
