Sound like you? If not, our speakers can help you begin your transformation into a confident, thriving woman, one who takes charge of her career and impresses leaders, coworkers, and others in just the right ways.
All our Backpacks workshops are free, so you'll be investing only a few (enjoyable) hours of your time to make a measurable difference in your career and your life.
Confidence is more important than talent in a career, says the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Its study of 500 people found that confident people are often promoted even over those who are more competent, and achieved a higher social status than their peers. (Read about it here.)
