“One word to describe Gill & her Springboard Programme is ‘Inspirational’.
All women have such a variety of backgrounds and experiences - the Springboard programme empowers you with your past and prepares you for the most productive future possible - it’s truly life changing.
Thinking about people that inspire us, Gill now pops to the front of my list every time now, she is a very driven, kind, understanding and warm person to be taught by and naturally motivates those around her to achieve the best for themselves. I would highly recommend Springboard, but also to be a part of anything that Gill runs I guarantee would be beneficial.”
“I have attended Gill’s ‘Springboard for Women course’ and can thoroughly recommend it to women who wish to reflect on their achievements, plan for the future and embrace opportunity. Gills’ ability to communicate and get people thinking out answers for themselves is great.”
“The course is inspirational and has inspired me to go for better paid roles with more responsibility, work on my image, look after me, address my past issues, invest in myself, find support groups and think much more positively. I have so many ideas and goals, I need now to prioritise and act on them. I’m so excited.”
