Some of Rebel’s current workshops include:
A Game-Changing 2 days for serious business women who want to ‘do’ business and life a bit differently! This Bootcamp is for women who aren’t scared to ‘go deep’ on their own issues and challenge the inner voice. It is for women who want a little luxury, amazing food and the opportunity to grow, personally and professionally. It also offers incredibly rich content about marketing and sales; allowing participants to take massive action immediately to grow their businesses. Outside Box radically mixes confronting and compelling personal conversations about self, customers, marketing, sales, well-being and food – this workshop is NOT your typical business session!
A delicious 3 hour workshop that goes to the core of self belief – and starts to unpack the reasons WHY people fail at Goal Setting at the same time as providing a nurturing environment to explore, stretch and move into new belief systems to SUCCEED!
This workshop provides participants with some useful tools, action tasks and encourages them to DO something about BEING differently!
Ideal for personal/professional development, community engagement and empowerment, this workshop can be delivered for 10-1000 people.
Rebel has spent the past 15 years working in/for/with the not for profit sector and has identified some key barriers to growth for individuals and organisations in this sector.
One of them is a FEAR of SALES AND MARKETING – and a distinct lack of skills and strategy in these areas.
This full day workshop helps social and community minded people overcome some of these barriers to attract more clients, improve their program attraction and retention rates and develop super amazing and affordable marketing campaigns that see new clients and community member flooding to programs, activities and events.
This is a challenging and FUN workshop that packs a punch and helps people really break through their barriers to realise that sales and marketing is just about helping their clients connect with the solution to their problem!
