This September a GROUP OF INCREDIBLY DRIVEN WOMEN are gathering in Zürich for a day of inspiration and positive action. We will talk about living our passion, creating meaningful careers that make a positive impact and ‘having it all’ by maintaining a balanced lifestyle. This day is the ‘GO TO’ event for women who are ready to smash the status quo and make things happen.

It's a whole day event of positive action and encouragement.
BIG IDEAS, SMALL STEPS
We all want to get inspired, but it's much harder to turn those ideas into reality. With the help of our volunteer 'Doers' you will be able to make the first small step towards your dreams.
IT'S A GATHERING OF WOMEN WHO WANT TO DO AMAZING THINGS
The festival schedule will alternate between talks, and smaller gatherings of expert leader “Doer Workshops”. During the breaks you can have speed coaching in our Doers Village, meet and connect with the other festival attendees and get to know amazing brands for modern ‘doers’.

READ WHAT ATTENDEES OF FESTIVAL OF DOERS LONDON SAY:
"Festival of Doers will change your mindset, empower you to go beyond your comfort zone but most of all will equip you with tools to follow your dreams. It was an unforgettable experience."
Sandra Buonfrate, Marketing Manager
"Festival of Doers was an incredible day that showcased world-class women who oozed jaw-dropping inspiration. With energy, humour and candid honesty, these women told their stories in the most engaging way. The day catapulted the audience into defining their dreams and embarking on their action plans before we'd even got out of the room! I'm going back for more in 2018 and have already enlisted a tribe of like-minded women with a burning desire to achieve more in life to come with me!"
Sarah Hanson, HR Consultant
"I've got the Festival of Doers ticket as a Christmas gift from my friend. I didn't know what to expect. I was stuck in a job I didn't enjoy, so I guess, she wanted to inspire me and motivate me to make the much-needed change in my life! I heard many inspirational speeches at this event, but the workshop I attended gave me the confidence and belief in myself to make the step towards change. To have writers, coaches and speakers around you from morning until late night and access to speak to them directly is a powerful experience you will never forget!”
"I attended the first Festival Of Doers and it was an awe-inspiring event – the energy of so many women coming together ready to be more was palpable, the line-up of speakers impressive, talks and workshops inspiring and practical, with plenty of opportunities to get personalised tools, connections and feedback. One of the best ways to kick start my year, I already look forward to the next one!"
Francesca Lando, Artist & Designer
"The inaugural Festival of Doers was a life-changing event for me. It was wonderful to hear the different journeys and life stories of so many kick-arse, empowering women. I connected with great mentors and contacts on the day who have gone on to help, inspire and guide me through 2017. I can't wait to see what Festival of Doers 2018 has in store for my life journey."
