2. The Gravitas Project – 12 Month Program – Terms and Conditions

1. Description

Refined International agrees to provide training/workshops and coaching/mentoring services focusing on building gravitas through the program called The Gravitas Project (Program). Attending The Gravitas Project workshops and completing its associated coaching/mentoring is a two way process (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between Refined and Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires participants to maximize personal and professional potential.

2. Responsibilities

  • Client is responsible for creating and implementing her own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results. As such, the Client agrees that Refined is not and will not be liable for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by Refined. Client understands coaching/mentoring is not therapy and does not substitute for therapy if needed, and does not prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease.
  • Client understands that coaching/mentoring is not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, financial, mental health, medical or other qualified professionals and will seek independent professional guidance for such matters. If Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, Refined will recommend that Client inform the mental health care provider and the client may need to have a referral letter from their health care provider.
  • Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and create the time and energy to participate fully in the Program.
  • Client agrees to actively participate in the Program for the full duration of 12 months.

3. Services

The parties agree to engage in a 12 month program held over 4 sets of two day workshops in Sydney and 4 single one:one coaching sessions held via Skype or Facetime or telephone. Full day sessions will typically last 9 – 5pm and coaching/mentoring will be no less than 1 hour and no more than 1.5 hours in duration per session. The Gravitas Project will also operate a closed community online discussion forum available to Client. Any additional time will be negotiated directly with the Client and subject to an additional fee. It is not possible to make up lost days and this needs to be carefully considered when choosing to submit an application to the program.

The program dates for the The Gravitas Project In Person Modules are outlined in the Information Pack. Dates subject to change.

The Gravitas Project is a dynamic program and as such may change in format and process over time. The program intent will remain intact, there is a possibility that the program design and size may evolve.

4. Schedule & Fees

The Gravitas Project can be paid for in full in advance or on a payment plan of four instalments in advance.

Payable terms for Invoice are 14 days from date of invoice.

When utilising the Payment Plan, payment is made in four instalments consisting of a commencement fee paid upon receipt of your Registration Form and three equal instalment payments (payable prior to the next module on the dates shown below).

The Client agrees that Refined is authorised to debit the nominated credit card on the dates notified and agreed.

CFO

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

K.S.

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.

A.P.

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. 

CFO

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.

S.K.

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. 

S.O.

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.

A.G.

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

L.B.

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

Anon.

Small group learning … with high credibility.
