What to keep in mind

The WINConference is attended by many different people from corporate executives, entrepreneurs and artists to name only a few. Participants want to share, grow, learn, accelerate their careers and perhaps start businesses in a feminine and authentic way. WIN asks how do we do this, how do we open ourselves to new solution, to allow for possibilities to come our way and how do we out this wisdom into action?


The WIN Way is to develop, empower and connect leaders, giving global perspective and tools for women to integrate the feminine leadership and contribute with their authenticity. WIN does this by creating an inclusive context, highlighting authentic success stories which challenge present day stereotypical ideologies; by providing coaching, workshops and forums to support model and facilitate skill building and accelerate learning and creating together. We inspire and evoke change to authenticity and raise global feminine consciousness to create a sustainable future and balance lives. Ultimately, we work for women’s freedom of choice, knowing that women’s empowered leadership is of critical importance to the world today.  


WIN encourages companies to be inclusive and diverse, to think long term with their highest values, to be conscious focusing on trust, quality and beauty as sustainability. WIN provides the setting for benchmarking, mindful networking, real business, sharing and acceleration of the authentic company. Individually, the WINConference aims to awaken the feminine power within us, un-tap the potential, ignite our vitality and vision for the future. From this, we are encouraged to boldly take the next step in our personal and work lives with grace, courage and collaboration. We support a think out of the box approach and would like all speakers to represent the values and pillars of being global, authentic, international, practical, innovative, and creative, interconnected to understand our global responsibility.

The WIN Participant wants to grow, learn, accelerate their careers and start businesses in a feminine and authentic way. W.I.N. asks how do we do this, how do we open ourselves to new solutions, how do we bring the wisdom into action? W.I.N. embraces a rich and varied mix of topics starting with the afore-mentioned themes. However, it is very important that there is a conscious focus on the feminine. Although, we make some suggestions below, we encourage you to be creative and not limited by our suggestions.


Workshop topics typically encompass organisational creativity, cross-cultural leadership, being an efficient board member, making diversity work, ethical leadership, creative leadership, feminine leadership, how to create, improve and maintain your personal authentic brand, public speaking, efficient communication, making an impact, how to move from a team player to a team leader, retaining talent, how to become indispensable at work, promoting creativity and innovation, marketing through the web, women and technology. Managing career transitions, action planning for change, mastering transitions, understanding non-verbal communication, conscious communication, change management, from career to calling, integrating spirituality into work, making your voice heard, living your passion and creating your mission, negotiation skills, working with purpose and applying values in decision making, building a conscious business.


Entrepreneurs want hands-on learning so that they may - build an authentic business, find capital, protect my brand, sell and build a brand, run a global team while being inclusive, negotiate and get a better deal, tap into my wisdom, deal with change, how to see the opportunity in the adversity, technology and my business, how to protect myself from procrastination, my talents and purposes transferred into my business and mastering my financial managements and debt proofing myself.


Speaker Conference Fees

The global WINConference is different from many other events as it showcases on average 130 speakers each year. This is strategically planned to ensure that many voices are heard instead of repeating a few. WIN offers speakers a reduced speaker conference fee. Each speaker also has an invaluable opportunity to raise their global profile and contribute to the vision of equality that we all wish to achieve. Therefore, having purposefully chosen this way of including a high number of presenters, speakers are not paid to present as this would result in the event becoming unsustainable. We hope that speakers can see the benefits that an introduction into the WIN speaker network community brings, and can make the most of their exposure to an extraordinary variety of professional contacts. At our smaller corporate events this is sometimes different should funding be available.

Each speaker is offered the following speaker deal:

  • Workshop Leaders, Forum Speakers, Coaches and/or Morning Awakening Facilitators.
  • The conference fee for speakers is 995 euros. 
  • The conference fee covers the registration fee and includes the numerous dinners, lunches, breaks, learning material and profiling of you as a speaker.

Normal Conference Fee Prices

  • Early Bird until 15 June: 1595 euros
  • Full price until 15 August:1795 euros
