HAPPY RENEW YEAR
Welcome to 2023
I wish everyone a productive, peaceful, and profitable year. I am delighted to start the year with positivity, and possibilities and aim to continue with the energy from the end of last year. To create what I will call Happy RENEW Year, I am delivering two ASPIRE workshops for ambitious women and emerging entrepreneurs in February and a repeat of the Activation training and coaching programme on the 4th and 5th of March.
