Building Visibility + Influence for Women in the Public Sector – Masterclass March 2022

Support your team or yourself to maximise your influence in this critical masterclass for women in the public sector.

Our popular two-day virtual masterclass for women in the public sector is back! If you’re a woman working in government or with government, this masterclass will help you to lift your influence, voice and profile, and support your teams to do the same. More than 130 women from more than 50 departments and agencies have experienced this highly-regarded program, which is facilitated by global experts in helping women leaders strategically and authentically build their influence and impact. 

Participants report having powerful insights about their leadership potential and aspirations, and say the tools are practical, immediately impactful and easily shared with their teams.

Over three weeks (1 x full day and 2 x half days), you’ll be guided towards more effective leadership, unlocking the mindset and practical skills for strategic influencing, communication and greater effectiveness. You will walk away clear on your leadership vision and values and hold a deceptively simple but strategic leadership roadmap to generate influence with leaders around you, manage your team and take you into the next stage of your career.


PROGRAM OVERVIEW (also refer to our Masterclass Brochure here)

The masterclass will cover the three stages of impactful visibility, over two themed days (1 x full day and 2 x half days):


  • Introduction to the Three Pillars of Visibility, with government and public-sector-specific case studies
  • Visibility foundations: visibility audit, values and leadership vision, which in themselves are life-changing for many women
  • Unpacking your visibility mindset: articulating your strengths and challenges


  • Visibility to others + visibility for impact: what is your deeper potential and how do you want to bring it to life?
  • Strategic communications recipe for influence and impact in every setting
  • 4MAT debrief: understanding your learning + communications style (diagnostic to be completed in advance)
  • Creating a visible leader roadmap: your plan for influence and impact
  • Panel Session: we will be joined by the wonderful Susan McKee, CEO at Dental Health Services Victoria, and Emma Stonham, Senior Advisor to the CEO, Australian Sports Commission
  • 30-day visibility challenge: activating your visible leader roadmap

The two days will comprise a mixture of facilitator led discussions, individual and group work.

  • Want to see better outcomes for your leadership, team or wider department

Here is what previous participants had to say:

“If there is one leadership journey you can make time for, this is the one. Visibility Co gave me the pathway to rediscover my voice, review my values and vision and refilled my reservoir of energy to make the difference I want to make. In self and collective leadership.” 

“This course and content is a must for any woman wanting to elevate herself and break out of her comfort zone. The practical tools left me with a renewed sense of courage to take action. I just wish I’d discovered it sooner!”

“What an amazing opportunity to engage with such inspiring, engaging women and to address some really tough topics. Sarah and Julia, I have never had an adult learning opportunity presented by anyone so engaging as yourselves, and I felt so privileged to have access to [panellists] Rose Falla and Kate Auty!”

“They are women empowerment catalysts who help women identify their vision and raise their visibility by building strong narratives and collective actions.”

“[Julia and Sarah] offer amazing guidance to women to understand themselves, to reach their potential and develop the courage to improve their impact.”

“It gave me practical tools and the first draft of my plan so I could take action right away.”
