QUEEN BEE COACHING

Queen Bee Coaching, a Pankhurst Trust Service, is about empowering women. 

Coronavirus Update

Coaching is perhaps more relevant than ever before because of the challenges coronavirus is posing to society. Queen Bee Coaching (QBC) is still accepting applications from both coaches and clients.

In response to the situation we will be strengthening our online presence by creating virtual networking meetings and leadership discussions. If you would like to support the running of these events please contact us at coachinginfo@pankhursttrust.org

About Queen Bee Coaching

Queen Bee Coaching is about empowering women who have demonstrated leadership to improve their skills and confidence, move into positions of power and accelerate their positive impact on society. In everything we do, we seek to ensure the service reflects the diversity, demographics and dynamism of Greater Manchester. 

Originating from the 100 year anniversary of some women receiving the right to vote, Queen Bee Coaching believes that enabling women to realise their full potential will ultimately redress the balance of power across Greater Manchester and close the gender pay gap.

Working with our impressive coaches we can help you develop your skills and give you the confidence to take the next step in your career and increase your impact and influence. Together we can create the standard and make women in leadership the norm creating a new dynamic. We can drive home that women rightfully belong in senior leadership positions and make organisations stronger.

Our six free coaching sessions are open to women already working in leadership within Greater Manchester and who do not have financial or organisational support to access coaching.  We’re keen to ensure that the service represents the women of Greater Manchester and applications are welcomed from all of the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester and BAME, LGBTQ and disabled women.

Wondering what Queen Bee Coaching is all about and whether it is for you? We’ve put together some answers to questions that we often get asked and that have popped up during our recent recruitment. Click here to read our FAQs.
