DrivenWoman is a network for women with ideas and ambition who want to achieve their goals. Dreams don’t come true because it’s difficult to stick to our own plans. But imagine if you actually achieved what you always wanted. Launched that business, wrote that novel, made that career change, lived a bigger life – how amazing would that be? DrivenWoman is a members’ network that helps women define their own success, become accountable to their goals and make dreams happen. We get together once a month to create positive habits and put plans into action, one small step at a time. LifeWorking Method This is where networking meets life coaching, but this time your coaches are other women sharing their journey. The really powerful thing about going through the shared experience of ‘LifeWorking’ is that it impacts directly on your positivity and belief in your own potential. Instead of the sense of isolation you may have felt before, you will be inspired by the stories of other participants and will soon notice that the obstacles you thought were unique to you are universal to most women, and can be overcome. There aren’t any other forums like this where women support each other in such a safe and honest environment. It's a community that encourages women to believe anything is possible if you are ready to put work into it! JOIN one of our Workshop! In this 2-hour session you will: Articulate what you want to achieve – what does your ‘bigger life’ look like? Set your long-term goal and short-term tasks and break them down into tangible, achievable action points you can tackle. Share and hear stories of other like-minded women. Be inspired by the stories of other participants and notice that the obstacles you thought were unique to you are universal to most women. Get a sense of clarity of your journey ahead, be it to start your own business, take your career to the next level or simply to become more comfortable in your own skin. There is no commitment to join DrivenWoman afterwards. Just come along. That’s what DrivenWoman is all about. Encouraging everyone to make things happen! After only a couple of months members notice a tangible change in their lives, here's what some of our members say: "Since joining DrivenWoman in May, I have got more done in three months than what I got done in the previous year. It has been an eye-opening experience, super inspirational and most importantly it has got me focused on what I really need to do." Jane De Croos, founder of Chilli Drops “DrivenWoman has been a life-changing experience for me. I previously worked in male-dominated industries, with barely any women in leadership roles to aspire to. I was fairly disillusioned about what I could achieve in business as a woman. But DrivenWoman has encouraged me to think differently, to challenge myself and to be brave. I no longer compare myself to others or aspire to be someone else, I aim to be the best, most authentic version of me and to truly value what I bring to the table. That belief in myself, and brand me, is paying dividends in terms of client work. So not only is my business thriving, but I also have the advantage of being surrounded by a wonderful network of supportive women from all different backgrounds and perspectives who are my personal cheerleaders. When I’m having tough times, they help lift me up and when I’m on a roll they inspire me to push myself further.” Natalie Davison Director of Swell Communications "When I joined DrivenWoman I thought I was signing up for a monthly opportunity to network and interact with like-minded women, but what I didn't know was that I was embarking on a transformational journey so gentle that it has changed me without me fully realising. It is only now, after 9 months, that I can look back and see how much I have traveled, first and foremost as a woman and secondly as a professional. There is some magic that happens when we get together to offer each other a supportive space where a story can be told - both the act of listening and being listened to opens up doors of opportunities within oneself and new routes for one's journey appear. With DrivenWoman, I got what I signed up for. And so much more." Francesca Lando, Designer "DrivenWoman has not only inspired me and given me courage to go ahead with my business, but they have also made me understand some of the fundamentals of business and what will make my company successful. It has been an eye-opener and something that will change my life." Vuyisa Akuchie, founder of Sweet Couture Surprises Group Leader Gretel Gambarelli is a certified DrivenWoman Group Leader for DrivenWoman Switzerland. Gretel is an Italian national, living in Bern since 2011. For more than 10 years, Gretel worked as Environmental Economist in international development and environmental organizations in the U.S. and in Switzerland. In 2012, she suddenly lost her job and, despite many attempts, she couldn’t find the next one. She spent three difficult years trying to help herself out of a frustrating condition (highly qualified, expat, lonely, stay-at-home mum) and in 2015 she decided to start her own business. She now helps other women reinvent themselves professionally in Switzerland, by organizing brainstorming and inspiration events and offering 1-1 mentoring. Gretel decided to become a DrivenWoman group leader because she has noticed that self-doubt, low self-confidence, and lack of persistence in pursuing our objectives are common factors, which often hinder high potential women. She firmly believes that a group of supportive women in a safe environment is extremely useful to move forward and realize our dreams. Gretel speaks English, Italian and some German.
