A movement that is making waves across the industry.

The world's leading media & advertising agency group.

The Challenge

“We had an opportunity to ‘walk the talk’.”

We started working with this advertising holding company and its agencies in 2016 when they decided to invest in their mid-senior level women, a significant number of whom were dropping out of the system and not reaching the top. By building confidence, clarity and connection with these women during regional Shine For Women (or Walk the Talk as it is known internally) programmes, and consistently delivering this year-on-year, an award-winning movement has been created and to date, 4,000 women have stepped up to play a bigger game.
