Since becoming a member of the Woman Who Achieves Academy, I’ve built some fabulous relationships and gained valuable business knowledge and skills through attending the weekly and monthly networking events.

I’ve got the opportunity to share my story in the next Woman Who book and became a Finalist in the Solopreneur awards.

None of this would’ve happened had I not made a decision to invest in my personal development.

I can highly recommend the membership which is a one off lifetime investment which allows you to grow, develop and achieve business success with like minded women and learn from Sandra’s personal experience which is incredible

ACHIEVE… that’s the ultimate aim of the Academy. To help you ACHIEVE in all areas, both personally and in business. Set your goals and visualise those outcomes.


What is visibility?


It’s not rocket science. It’s about being seen in the right places by your ideal client so that you are the ‘go-to’ person. You’re right at the forefront of someone’s mind when they want or need your product or service.

If I were to ask you a question…

Who would you go to if you needed a family law solicitor? Would you turn to Yell (does it still exist??) google it, or ask for a recommendation?

Someone may spring to mind in an instant as you’ve seen them… a lot. They’ve been visible and in some way you feel connected. It’s as if you know them already, even if you’ve never met face to face.

That’s visibility.

You want to be that person that everyone thinks of first… the one who gets recommended, every time. The person who attracts their clients rather than having to go out looking for them.

Would you like to be more visible?


What does it cost?


A one-off payment or spread monthly options (one-off payment, no membership or recurring fees). This is not a membership or annual renewal payment, just a ‘once only’ lifetime fee to subscribe. Once you’ve paid the subscription fee (either one-off or by monthly installments) that’s it!

Academy Lite – £97
Academy Gold – £397
Academy Platinum – £697


Need to spread the cost? Monthly payment options are available (Payment over 12 months incurs a slightly higher payment due to administration of Direct Debits. Please note: If you elect to pay via the 12-month option and decide to leave the Academy, the unpaid balance of the full subscription outstanding remains due in full).

I first heard of Woman Who from an associate who suggested I visit the website and enter for an award. I attended the event to announce finalists and knew instantly ‘this is where I want to be’. The professional warmth, the support that I could sense amongst the group, and Sandra herself who I felt to be so inspirational as a woman and as a leader, struck a chord.


I would advise any woman looking to expand her network, her contacts and to have the privilege of belonging to such a group, to visit the website and contact Sandra.

“Joining The Woman Who Achieves Academy has been, by far, the best business decision I made for a very long time!

The Academy is home to a motivated group of business women, ready to support each other, who bring their particular skills and knowledge to the group for the benefit of the community.

Sandra is everything you’d expect: a wonderful business role model for us all, and a genuinely caring and warm human being, who shares her knowledge and ideas for our betterment.

In short, The Woman Who Acheves Academy is a safe place for the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and even problems, and it also has a social aspect which is much needed right now, in the Autumn of 2020!

I’d wholeheartedly recommend you join us!”

Not sure?

Join the Woman Who Community on Facebook. You’ll get a a feel for what Woman Who is all about.

I often post advice and tips that you can use straight away and all the Woman Who news and updates are posted there first. You can also deliver a ‘live’ video introduction and receive feedback in a safe and supportive environment in the group.

Woman Who Achieves Academy Lite

You could take advantage of the new Academy Lite which gives you all of the networking and learning, without the opportunities. You can simply upgrade later.

Remember this is not a membership, so once you’ve paid your subscription, you’re in for life.

One of the best decisions I made in 2020 was to sign up for the Woman Who Achieves Academy. I had been to a couple of Woman Who networking events and knew Sandra was an impressive woman! I knew it would help me in some ways, although I wasn’t clear exactly how. I didn’t realise just how valuable membership of this group of like-minded women was going to be.


Sandra knows so much, about business, about building your personal brand about public speaking, and she imparts her knowledge so inspiringly. She is warm and supportive and she has created a community of women who reflect those characteristics. We are ‘sisters of the academy’! Roll on the day when we can meet and hug each other!

I launched the Woman Who Achieves Academy during the pandemic, in May 2020, to help women in business during lock down to get visible.


I asked a few simple questions…


  • Are you wondering if your business will survive and thrive right now?
  • Do you want to ensure that you’re visible over the next few months and beyond?
  • Have you been putting off taking action to grow yourself and your business?


The Woman Who Achieves Academy is a place to Learn, Grow, and receive mentoring Support to ACHIEVE and gain that all important confidence to be more visible, in a safe and supportive environment of like minded women in business

I help you to power up your personal brand and get visible by finding your story and sharing it on stage, in print and other media.

Plus, I create opportunities for you which are only available to Academy subscribers.

I want to help you to ACHIEVE. I do this quite simply by sharing my knowledge, and helping you to gain that all important visiblity.




… a membership. There are no monthly fees (unless you wish to spread your one-off subscription payment over 12 months).
… a group where you are left to get on with it. It’s a way for me to share my knowledge, through group mentoring, and there’s lots of it.
… an annual subscription. There are no renewals or annual fees. Once you’ve paid your one-off subscription either as a one-off payment or spread over 12 months, you’re in for life.


How good is that?


So let me tell you a little more about what it is and what you’ll get


  • The Woman Who Achieves Academy launched in May 2020 and I’m really excited about it. It’s far exceeded my expectations. I’m loving the interaction and engagement so far, especially the networking, collaborations, successes and support within the group.
  • The Woman Who Achieves Academy is set up to ensure that you ACHIEVE your goals, power up your personal brand and gain visibility from the opportunities I create for you.
  • You can take advantage of my wealth of business knowledge too. There’s a lot of it, and I want you to have it!
  • The Academy is based in a private Facebook Group and is only accessible to subscribers. So you can be sure that you’ll always be in a safe and supportive environment.
  • I host a weekly ‘live’ on Monday morning to inspire and motivate you for the week ahead, and a Zoom group mentoring session every week where you’ll learn something new and you can ask me anything.
  • There are tasks and learning units, plus tips, training, mini-challenges, and ongoing support to ensure that you ACHIEVE your goals.
  • I will be in the group commenting and supporting you throughout the week with encouragement and inspiration. In essence, it’s a way for me to reach more women in business with my mentoring, which I love.
  • I want to make this totally accessible to you and to share my knowledge. I also want to ensure that there is no catch; so there is no membership, no renewal and once you subscribe, you’re in for life!
  • As a bonus, you’ll get lots of networking with other members as the group grows and the chance to craft your offering. To date, there has been so many new connections and collaborations in the group, and it’s been exciting seeing them flourish. It’s also become a place where women support each other’s business.


The Academy has now expanded to offer 3 different levels of entry:  Academy Lite, Academ Gold and Academy Platinum

  • You will receive opportunities that will only be offered to Woman Who Achieves Academy subscribers (dependent upon your level of subscription), such as an opportunity to feature in Woman Who publications (I Am A Woman Who), speaking at Woman Who events and other speaker/media and press requests (I create quite a few of those!).
  • There will be online workshops, helping you craft your message and reach your clients. Key sessions are around your story, so that you develop it in writing ready for print and so that you’re able to deliver it on stage, confidently, with or without notes. Plus, there’ll also be lots of learning about the benefits of entering Awards.
  • NEW: The new weekly Woman Who Chat podcast are a great feature.
  • NEW: You can add your profile feature to the Academy Directory on the website and submit guest blogs each month on our monthly theme.
  • NEW: Now that we’ve returned to face to face events, you could be hosting a Woman Who Live event as a Woman Who Ambassador in your area and delivering your own keynote.
  • NEW: Platinum subscription offers you a monthly Mastermind to accelerate your visibility and do more in-depth work on your keynote

There will be other aspects too that will evolve over time so the content will never get stale, and there will always be something new and new opportunities.

What happens when you subscribe?

As soon as you subscribe, I will ask you to set some goals. You can download and complete a very short workbook so that I can ensure that I tailor the content specifically to you so that you do ACHIEVE.


I can’t wait to see you there.

When I saw the opportunity to join Sandra’s Woman Who Achieves Academy, I knew it would be one of the best decisions I have invested in.

I wasn’t wrong as her weekly hints and tips are invaluable to me on my journey to a becoming a public speaker. Sandra’s generosity in such a challenging time for people in the lockdown is overwhelming.

She has a calming and supportive manner which makes her a pleasure to listen to and her words are spoken with sincerity and integrity. I have felt a sense of her innate warmth and her experience is evident in so many areas. I am not at all surprised that this incredible lady has an MBE.
