Short courses and workshops

Gravitas is the secret weapon of women who lead.

Our short courses and workshops help women to be the obvious choice for major career advancement. We want more women to take their seat at the table, be it in the boardroom or the executive suite.

Women want to go to Harvard, INSEAD and Wharton to learn about leadership theory, but when they need to know how to lead, they contact us.

Why? Because The Gravitas Lab offers the only short courses and workshops that provide the practical and mindset changes women need to move to the next stage of their career.

I founded The Gravitas Lab because if I don’t show you the things that are not being taught in business school, who will?

And I want you to know that leaders today need gravitas to make an impact and be heard.

The woman with gravitas is the one you want to be with and around. They know what to say and when to say it and rarely have any awkward moments. They fit in while standing out. Those with gravitas deal with the weighty issues and have the ability to be seen as a person of authority who engages and influences others while holding their own in difficult or unprecedented situations.

Gravitas is a learned behaviour and a surprising amount of progress can be made once you unlock an individual’s gravitas.

At The Gravitas Lab we are all about sharing our knowledge and helping women across your organisation become the obvious choice for the next step in their career, and the next, and the next.

We can come to you to present in person or we can present virtually to your wider organisation wherever they are located.

Invaluable for me. Has helped reset what I need to do and given me the guidance needed.


Look at your career through a different prism with other great and interesting women from diverse backgrounds, in a safe, supportive and encouraging environment. It’s a bit like being re-energised with purpose.


I enjoyed the program because it was a small group which felt very comfortable. Amanda is very genuine about wanting to help other women succeed, and very open and sharing of her own experiences. 


I would recommend this program to anyone who is on the director journey but cannot work out how to differentiate themselves from the competition. It has also helped me determine what type of role would suit me.


Women don’t do networking well and often feel it is a task that must be endured. This teaches how to make it natural and not pushy. 


It actually changes the way you think about your approach. Yes, we’re at a point in our career where experience is a given but how do we apply it to other careers and how do we change the discussion about how it is applied.


Opportunity to gain a new perspective, learn new skills, think differently and of course networking in practice. 


Learning from an impressive woman … content was highly relevant and delivered in an engaging way.


Small group learning … with high credibility.
