A diverse leadership pipeline creates a pathway to leadership for everyone

UnlimitU has a passionate ambition for greater leadership diversity. We partner with organisations to make gender equity a visible leadership commitment from the top down. We help you build a pipeline of talented women leaders from the bottom up. We inspire women to courageously lean into being authentic and confident leaders.

Let’s stop women falling off the leadership ladder

 

79% of women early in their career, and 83% of women in middle-management desire to move up to the next level of management.

Only 26% of women hold Senior Executive roles in the ASX300.

A meagre 14% of ASX300 women hold future pipeline roles into Senior Executive positions.

Personal development programs for women build a more innovative and high performing culture.

With diversity of leadership there is:

– 21% average increase in an organisations profit performance
– 31% greater likelihood of women reaching senior executive roles
– A healthy pipeline of women sponsors, mentors and role models
– Future generations of more emotionally intelligent, confident leaders

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

It’s the most rewarding aspect of what we do, hearing first-hand the positive impacts we bring to people’s lives.

Poppy delivered a bespoke 4 month High Performance & Positive Wellbeing Program for Yamaha. It is evident from the moment you engage with Poppy that she is at the forefront of leadership thinking in mental health, wellbeing, and empowering teams. Poppy’s warm and genuine presentation style enables her to instantly connect with her audience. She uses practical and engaging models within her workshops which are simple for leaders and teams to take away and put into action. Everyone who participated in our program cannot speak highly enough of the impact Poppy has made. We look forward to collaborating with UnlimitU again in future

Poppy more than delivered for Westpac’s Corporate Partner Program. She took the time to understand who we are as a business and what we are trying to achieve for our customers. Poppy delivered an amazing workshop that was well received by our corporate clients. I wholeheartedly recommend UnlimitU & will be working with Poppy on other initiatives.

After 4 weeks of private coaching with Poppy, I feel I have made significant progress, clarity, insight, and direction both personally and professionally. I have a clear roadmap, I feel a real sense of lightness, and excitement. Honestly, I feel genuinely happier in all aspects of my life after my time with Poppy.

Poppy is an inspirational, intelligent and passionate speaker and educator. 

Having worked closely with Poppy on the topics of working parents and women in leadership, Poppy is in her element giving people practical, high performance strategies for busy working professionals. I would highly recommend Poppy to organisations looking to achieve the performance edge.

TIXSTAR organise and plan a variety of events and experiences, we engaged Poppy for our International Women’s Day Breakfast at the MCG. Poppy was nothing short of outstanding and the level of engagement with the audience was fantastic. As a business we will definitely look to work with Poppy on-going and are excited for a great partnership.

Looking for a speaker who talks directly to your audience, leaving everyone inspired to be the best version of themselves?  Then Poppy is your speaker! Poppy is powerful, authentic and relatable. Our room of 100 woman were blown away by her powerful messages and delivery on Courageous Leadership. We will struggle to find another speaker that connected so well with our audience.

Poppy has recharged and refocused my professional career direction. Her authentic and supportive coaching approach was full of practical strategies and has provided me a great roadmap for my next career move.

We were fortunate to have Poppy speak at our Ladies of Property International Women’s Day Luncheon where she gave an inspiring presentation on ‘How to be a Courageous Leader.’ Everyone was engaged from the minute she spoke. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from many of our guests. Thank you Poppy for helping us deliver a brilliant event!

Poppy was an outstanding presenter at our Wellbeing Performance Breakfast at the Mornington Racing Club! Her lived experience combined with the science behind wellbeing really hit home with our guests, she talks the talk and walks the walk plus leads from the front in terms of promoting wellbeing in our community. We look forward to a great partnership ahead with Poppy! 

AusNet were fortunate enough to work with Poppy after we engaged UnlimitU for a Health & Safety Industry Forum for 250 Delivery Partners. We explored the key elements of Building Emotionally Intelligent Workplaces. Poppy is an open, warm and experienced professional who has the ability to captivate her audience with her engaging style, evidence based research, theories and ideas for practical implementation. Woking with Poppy to develop a session that met our brief was a seamless process and I look forward to working with UnlimitU again in the future

We engaged Poppy to provide strategic guidance around developing a go-to-market coaching offering and to deliver Maxme programs into businesses and schools. She has been integral to taking Maxme’s coaching offering to the next level – from developing a strategic framework, coordinating additional coaching resources, further expanding our content and delivering highly impactful sessions to a number of tertiary institutions. The combination of deep experience in coaching and training, her expertise in marketing and business, plus her ability to connect with people across all ages, levels and industries is part of what makes Poppy such a leader in her field.

Working with UnlimitU has been great for our business & personally. The entire programme was very well structured and complete, including values, strengths, mindset, and strategy planning. The learnings were clear and very insightful. Poppy tailored it to be very relatable to our situation. Its been a pleasure to work with someone so positive and talented
