Whether it’s asking for a pay rise, switching careers or coming back to work after maternity leave, critical career moments can too often trigger Imposter Syndrome and self-doubt. In extreme cases it holds us back from taking the leap at all, settling instead for what feels most comfortable.
The key to overcoming these feelings is preparation and presence. Presence is the energy you exude when you put your best, most authentic self forward in how you look, speak and act. Developing a strong sense of presence helps us to tackle our doubts head-on and succeed at those critical career moments.
TRESemmé and The International Center for Research on Women have spent the last two years crafting The Presence MasterClass, a 7-part course designed to help women #PowerYourPresence and succeed in their working lives – whatever 'success' means to them.
The Presence MasterClass™ will launch as a free and immersive experience for three full days in May. Alongside 30 ambitious women like yourself, you'll be equipped with the knowledge and tools to enhance your confidence at work, clarify your goals, and ultimately reach your professional dreams by developing presence.
And as an added bonus, Refinery29 will be there hosting three hands-on sessions with some inspiring women we love.
After The Presence MasterClass™ you’ll receive six months of invaluable support to help you put everything you learned into practice. This will include three months of personalised coaching, and a further three months of virtual group sessions with your MasterClass peers.

Don't miss out on this opportunity!

The MasterClass is open to women from all working backgrounds, whether you're a teacher, lawyer, retail manager, dancer or social worker.
