The executive women who attend my lunches all subscribe (at least I hope they do) to my motto: “There’s a special place in hell for any woman who doesn’t help another woman.” I pinched the quote from Madeline Albright, a former American politician.
“I’ve altered your quote,” said one of my networkers. “My version is: ‘There’s a special place in HEAVEN for any woman … etc.”
I considered it seriously but decided to stick with the original because it’s more scary. And most of us face scary moments in our lives – even Kim Kardashian.
That’s the theme of our free workshop after the November 17 lunch.
Our facilitator, Kate Tojeiro, is founder of leadership development company X fusion with an impressive list of FTSE 100 and Fortune 100 clients over the last 15 years, including Google, Accenture, Rio Tinto, Barclays.
Her workshop topic is ‘The Art of the Possible”. She says “Everyone, irrespective of talent, age, wealth or privilege – has to face their fears at some point in life, and conquer things that they previously considered unimaginable. It might be a new career, setting up a company, a promotion, an adventure or learning a new skill, but in order to realise your full potential the key is getting your mind to a state of becoming ‘comfortable with discomfort’, pushing boundaries and exposing yourself to different experiences. When you get comfortable with discomfort, it can turn the feared into something brilliant, a changed life.” Kate points the way.
At this 11th birthday lunch our speaker is the irrepressible best-selling author Jeffrey Archer and I will be auctioning some special prizes for the network charity (click on www.robincorbettaward.co.uk) including lunch with City Superwoman Nicola Horlick, cream tea at the House of Lords and Masterclasses with a top PR guru, a Non Executive and a presentation coach.
