Welcome to the Confidence Collaborative

Meet Joanne and Maggie - Play Me

Welcome to your Community. We are so happy that you have joined us!

You are here for a reason, and we want to help you.

Our mission is to empower you to create the career you desire, while finding joy and fulfilment in your work. Remember, investing in yourself is the first step towards building a brighter future.

We also understand that getting started or committing time to your own personal needs whether personal or professional is bloomin tough! It's not easy with all the pressures on our time modern day life throws at you. We get it !

So we are here to make that easier & simpler for you . How do we do that?

We take time to understand your issues, challenges, dilemmas and opportunities - we've also experienced many ourselves.

We provide private, fun, inclusive, non-judgemental and friendly spaces for you to explore what you need at the pace that you feel is ok for you right now - with potential to ramp up when you are ready because to grow we need to step outside our current comfort zone.

So who are we and why are we compelled to support you?

Joanne Thompson and Maggie MaGeary

Founders Joanne and Maggie are determined professional women and coaches who are passionate about helping others develop a career they love and a life where they feel supported and fulfilled.

Our aim is to inspire professional women to grow their confidence, build the courage and career skills to enable a transformation within which will lead to both greater personal fulfilment and better career .

Our Vision

We wish to see a world where equality of opportunity is the norm... where women are supported to access the career they want, in the way they want it.

KPMG's Women in Leadership study identified that 67% of women believed they learned the most important lessons from other women and 82% percent of professional working women believe networking with female leaders will help them advance their careers. However, our experience to date (from 50+ years combined experience in business!) is that organisations still have a long way to go to get the best out of their employees and to support them in a way that works for women - and will lead to both personal and business success. So we want to shake things up.

  • We are here to help you elevate your thinking, to improve your skills and increase your courage to create and claim the future you deserve.
  • We empower each individual to recognise themselves as leaders of their own lives.
  • We support you to find your voice and the confidence to ask for what you want.
  • We help you develop knowledge and skills so you feel more confident in the decisions and actions you are taking.

Our Mission

With the "Confidence Collaborative" we are creating an accessible and friendly community where professional women:

  • have an independent, supportive and safe space to grow
  • can find the resources and tools they need to discover & develop their own potential
  • are inspired to take action
  • can be themselves and take on a challenge, in a supportive environment
  • can work toward delivering individual goals, acknowledge and celebrate success
  • can learn the skills to level up the score - creating and claiming opportunities for progression

How Do We Support You?
