Our flagship programme is the public Leader’s Voice programme specifically designed for senior female leaders driving change in their company, industry and beyond.

Over eight months, we work with a small, hand-picked group of top-performing women from a variety of sectors, to develop the speaking skills, content, confidence and presence to become an influential leader at the highest level. 

Along the way, you’ll take part in life-changing activities and transformative coaching, culminating in the opportunity to speak at our Game Changer’s Summit at the House of Commons (or similar).

This is one of just a handful of opportunities to work personally with Ginger’s Founder, Sarah Lloyd-Hughes who is a well-known speaker and advocate on women’s visibility.

Places on the programme are by application only and we select participants based on their capacity to drive meaningful change around a tangible vision.

To enquire about a place on the Leader’s Voice and for upcoming dates, please get in touch here.

The Leader’s Voice is also available in-house for female leaders and mixed groups. We can tailor the content to focus on your business priorities.

What do we cover?

Clarity of Vision

  • Envisioning future success for your organisation and for yourself as a leader.
  • Articulating with certainty; what do I want?
  • Decision making as a visionary leadership: purpose and conscious choice, rather than as a follower: being led by external pressures and priorities.

Sarah has been instrumental in helping me find my vision, mission and platform for bringing about the change needed for Neurodiversity. As someone who struggles with networking, Sarah’s hosted game changing dinners have enabled me to connect with so many amazing and inspirational people who have motivated and amplified me in my own aspirations. On the Leader's Voice programme, in 8 months I went from being unsure of myself and in tears at the thought of entering the room with 7 women I had never met, to standing proudly alongside them as friends in the House of Commons, as I prepared to make my speech. Sarah, and her team, created an environment that encouraged openness, enabled vulnerability, provided strength and generated belief in what is possible. They also showed me how to craft my story and message in a way that increased the power and impact of what I was saying. My life has changed so much in the 18 months since the first game changers dinner, and things accelerated during the Leaders voice programme. Something I credit Sarah as being the catalyst that made it happen.

Helen NeedhamHelen NeedhamFounder/Managing PrincipalMe.Decoded/Capco

An amazingly well curated programme that is all about build stronger and more vocal female leadership for those wanting to create big and meaningful positive change in the world. Helped me to not only talk about my vision more openly and persuasively but also helped me focus on why I do the work I do, and in doing so gave me greater energy to deliver on my vision further and faster.

All round, a great investment that I know will benefit me for years to come.

Gayathri Butler Gayathri Butler Country Director (Ethiopia)Girl Effect

The speech coaches on the Leader's Voice programme were excellent. I feel proud of the progress I've made over the course of the programme in developing my storytelling and presentation skills.

Baillie AaronBaillie AaronFounder & CEOSpark Inside

Sarah Lloyd-Hughes' ability to help people develop their vision, amplify the message and guide them in rallying the people and money needed to make it a reality is extraordinary. I would highly recommend Sarah and her team if you are looking to elevate your own impact.

Cindy HootsCindy HootsGlobal Vice President, ITUnilever

I've learnt so many things, not just about public speaking, but about myself. I've really thought about what I want & what causes I really care about. I truly think it's a life changing experience... & a really fun one as well.

The thing I'm most proud of, was going to Speaker's Corner in gale force winds & the pouring rain & standing on a very wobbly step ladder & actually speaking in front of hecklers for more than 20 minutes. It was great to be heckled - it helped us all strengthen our arguments because we knew what the challenges would be.
