Behind Closed Doors (BCD) is an executive women’s program expanding into Sydney. BCD is an invitation only program where executive women and business owners discuss business and support each other to attain greater professional success. BCD provides a blend of face-to-face interventions and an online leadership academy with 24/7 access. Donny Walford created the program in 2008 in response to requests from senior women and business owners seeking an exclusively female business support network. It’s lonely at the top for both professional men and women, but women don’t have as many options when it comes to women mentors or entrepreneurial and business support.
Behind Closed Doors sessions provide members with a safe environment to speak openly and honestly about their challenges, strategies and issues.
Members support each other to be more effective in their executive and business roles and provide the tools to expand and grow to the benefit of their organisation. Attending every session requires a commitment from members and their employers (if applicable). But the benefits are more than worth it. This is time invested outside of the business thinking about the business on a strategic level and can deliver insights and “light bulb” moments as well as offering assistance with operational and life issues, professional development, business and connecting/networking opportunities, and support to attain board positions.
An introductory lunch session will be held at Deloitte in Sydney on 12 July. It is a great opportunity to meet the Founder and Managing Director, Donny Walford and Facilitator, Fiona Shand. If you’re interested in finding out more about the program or if you’d like to receive an invitation to this event, please get in touch.
