Power Up 2023

The ultimate empowerment experience for women who are ready to let go of what's holding them back and POWER UP!

Power Up is back for another year and it's going to be more power-full and experiential than ever.

When? Thursday 29th June 2023

Where? Orton Hall Hotel, Peterborough, UK

What? Letting go, powering up, empowerment, breathwork, yoga, meditation, active listening, growth, learning, coaching, music, dance, fun, energy and of course, change!!


Leading from your core is vital for career progression and business growth. It is the “wow” factor that sets you up for your next promotion, broadens your impact and gives your career a boost. Women face unique challenges when it comes to profile-raising due to systemic bias and can often adopt a “good student” mentality – in which we believe that if we work hard and be a good team player, that others will notice and reward us, when in reality, we need to show up, stand up and speak up if we want change and we want to be noticed.








It's time for women to live and lead from their core.

Core-led women know who they are at the core,

they have personal and professional boundaries, and they take time for themselves.

Core-led women trust their choices, they are able to communicate clearly and with impact.  Core-led women know how to ask for what they want and get it, they are confident, they speak up, they are able to stand in their own success, overcome perfectionism, trust their own voice, deal with negative thoughts and, in doing all of this, eliminate guilt and burnout.

It's time for you to redefine what leadership means to you, achieve balance, be the change, and make work work for you at my 2023 event. Designed for female leaders and the challenges they face, Power Up 2023 provides the time, space, energy and expertise to unlock the solutions that already exist inside you. 


I’ll guide you through my tried and trusted, core-led approach

that’s helped hundreds of women discover who they truly are.

And helped them become the leaders they always knew they

could be.

Who is it for?
From graduates to managers to executives, we welcome women

and anyone who identifies as a woman, from all industries,

sectors, and backgrounds. This creates an environment of new

ideas and thought leadership. Kelly Swingler Ltd will always

advocate for women but as our community grows we’re also

working for equality for everyone, everywhere. And as we grow

we’re working with more and more men who are demanding

change for women and who aspire for a more tolerant, inclusive world.

Many of our attendees come to our programmes with others, including male colleagues. Here is some of what they have to say:


"I've laughed, I've cried and I've been challenged.  I've challenged others, but mostly I've met some very fabulous, phenomenal, females who are equally as fired up as I am now" Jo Andrews, Leadership Disruptor


"The loudest, most resounding message from a day filled with soul, with compassion and an unrelenting belief in all the people in the room to Rise up! To Power up! To Thrive! Thank you for putting together the most incredible programme today.  Together we showed up, we let go and we powered up in a way that was phenomenal to witness, not only for myself but for all my new friends too!!" Bep Dhaliwal, Resilience Coach

"A day of self-development, fun and learning. Pushing my boundaries too!" Paula Senior, Fundraising Manager

"I felt privileged to experience Power Up at first-hand.  Saying thank you just doesn't seem enough" Mandy Withers, Virtual HR Director

Join me, either by yourself or with one or more of your colleagues, peers, or friends to join me at Power Up 2023. Experience the power of true empowerment at Power Up 2023, an event designed specifically for women to help them trust their choices, remove the guilt, set boundaries and succeed in their lives and careers.


Hosted by me, Kelly Swingler, Psychologist, and Executive Coach and with more than 23 years in People, Change and Leadership, this one-day event provides a safe and empowering environment for women leaders to grow, share and leave with clarity on who they are at the core, which will help them to be the power-full women that they truly are.












In addition to deep coaching and transformational change, this high-energy, high-impact day also includes sessions with experts who will guide you through some additional power-full activities throughout the day.


No doubt you've been to empowering development days before where you leave feeling energised and ready to make the necessary changes to your life and work, but by the time you get back to the office, you've not maintained all of that drive and momentum, me too! So to keep the learning power-full, attendees will also receive follow-up resources and reminders from the day to keep them moving forward in a way that benefits their growth and your company.

The benefits of attending Power Up include:

  • Spending the day with diverse and like-minded individuals and Kelly Swingler, expert in core-led leadership and change.

  • The opportunity to work on your mindset, boundaries and confidence in a safe and inspiring environment, outside of the office.

  • Business return on investment as women grow as role models, leaders and in their personal motivation, job satisfaction and life balance.

  • Networking with a wide range of corporates, entrepreneurs and charities with similar challenges yet different organisational backgrounds, making the day full of new ideas and thought leadership.

  • Power Up programmes facilitate a platform for ongoing discussion within your company or organisation.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Beyond 'doing a good job', understand the importance of being seen, heard, known and advocating for yourself and others all whilst living and leading from your core.

  • Develop your personal brand, stand out, be unique, different, and more impactful.

  • Grow your self-belief, overcome modesty, and any fears about being in the spotlight.

  • Stop playing it safe, start raising your head above the parapet, taking risks, and making more of a difference to others.

  • Get grounded

You can choose to start the day by connecting with your thoughts, feelings and emotions through a morning yoga or meditation session before breakfast

Working in small groups, you’ll develop your own mission statement to help you set your direction and make decisions more easily and effectively after the event and you'll say it loud and proud

  • Trust your choices

Tune into your inner voice to reveal the hidden truths about yourself that will empower you to implement change.​​

  • Let it go and Power Up

You'll let go, release and move on from anything that is holding you back and you'll Power Up in the space that you create

  • The future you

You'll set goals, see your future, reflect and plan so that you leave the day with your mission and vision for you, your way, in your future

Magic really does happen when women come together to drive change for themselves. The ripples of this change are far-reaching.  And I promise you a day of growth and fun.

Want to see more detail? Here's the full agenda

It's time to power up

Here’s what to expect on the day:

“Kelly gives you support, compassion, humor and challenges you to be authentic, driven and resilient. She’s helped me lead huge amounts of change and helped me understand where I add true value.”
Emma Russell, Head of HR, Jagex

What makes Power Up different? 


You’ll start to experience a shift in your mindset within the first 30 minutes as I take you through an exercise to help you understand who you are at your core.  And you’ll begin to eliminate the high-level if’s and but’s to help you grow further and challenge deeper throughout the day.


There’s no prescribed one-size-fits-all approach to anything.  Your personal mission statement is created based on you: your values, your beliefs, your wants and your needs for your future.  Not anyone else’s.


You’ll then turn up the volume on anything that you feel is holding you back and I’ll lead you through an empowering activity to help you break down barriers and remove blockages as we move into the holotropic breathwork and listening leader exercise. 


You’ll then experience what it really feels like to stand in your power, to be the power-full leader, the power-full woman that you know you are before you are truly seen as the power-full woman that you really are.


After lunch you'll create your perfect day and your ideal future before setting your power-full goals.


After some reflection time you’ll be feeling like you can achieve everything you want in life, and you’ll realise that this will require you to step out of your comfort zone, the if’s and but’s might start to creep back in, so you’ll experience another impactful and empowering exercise to help you to step out of your comfort zone with courage before moving into the power circles to close the day.

We’ll then have some high-energy fun, there will be music, and laughter, support and encouragement before you take a few moments of quiet reflection time.  And if you still want more, you can join me after the event for a Q&A and then a private dinner (20 places available for dinner)


But the learning doesn’t stop there!


You’ll receive follow-up resources and tools to help you to keep implementing the learning after the event so that you can keep the momentum flowing.

You'll leave with:

  • A clear picture of who you are and what really matters to you 

  • Renewed self-confidence that will empower you to achieve your plans

  • The ability to say ‘yes’ and ‘no’ at the right times - without feeling guilty

  • The confidence to listen to and trust your gut giving you a shortcut to sound decisions

  • The power to work in a way that allows you to prioritise yourself and your values

  • Additional head and heart capacity to effortlessly do the work that matters to you 

  • The tools to ensure you finish every day after the event with enough energy for other areas of your life 

“Kelly's events are thought provoking, life changing, supportive and fun. You're challenged in ways you could never have imagined and you create outcomes you could never have dreamed of. Word of caution, expect emotions to rise, this stuff goes deep and Kelly is so right, change really does happen on the other side of your comfort zone.”

Deborah F, Senior Partner, Legal Firm
