Raising Your Horizon

A Female Centric Programme To Help Your Career Flourish

Nearly 40% of women's confidence and courage has declined during Covid-19.

Considering just how many hours of our lives we spend working, our careers significantly determine the levels of happiness, satisfaction, well-being and purpose that we feel each day.

And yet, so many women are miserable in their careers: feeling stuck in a job that no longer inspires them; lacking the tools, connections or confidence to go for what they really want; or just running on the treadmill so fast and desperately trying not to fall off in the hustle of trying to do it all.

I get this on a very personal level – it’s how I spent a large part of my corporate career as a single working mother trying to keep both my sanity and health in check (often failing miserably…)

Raising Your Horizon is an amazing programme to be a part of if you’re at the start of your career, but also if you feel a bit stuck in your work environment.This programme will give you that extra guidance to help you overcome your self-limiting beliefs so that you can aim higher in your professional and personal life.

Raising Your Horizon Reviews

"This course taught me so much about myself, made me really understand what I want to achieve and how to do it. It put me outside of my comfort zone and made me really grow. It's an amazing thing to be a part of if you're at the start of your career, but also if you feel a bit stuck in your work environment. The positivity was always present and the atmosphere was amazing. There's nothing women can't do when we help each other and this course proved it. Thank you and I hope I will have an opportunity to learn from you again!"

"I loved the programme, thanks Deirdre. I found getting the workbook in advance really helpful. Is there any plan to expand this and run in face-to-face, when possible?"

"Really enjoyed the workshop with Deirdre and meeting the attendees. Everyone had their own story and experience to share leading to frank discussions and exchanges."

"Great course that guided me through some much needed self-reflection and armed me with useful methods and actions to focus on for my future development."

Beth Dormer


"I've recently completed the Raising Your Horizon learning programme with Deirdre McGinn. It was a fantastic programme geared towards women and I would highly recommend this course to others. It has helped me identify what I want from my career and has given me the tools to feel more confident in my abilities. The course enabled me to see the unique strengths I already have, it has also encouraged me to be brave by embracing new traits outside of my comfort zone. I now feel confident that I can continue to progress in my career while remaining true to my character. Deirdre has created a wonderful platform for women to come together and encourage one another."

Niamh Reville


"Deirdre is engaging, energetic and calming all at once. I have learned to identify my inner critic and to counteract this to build confidence both personally and professionally. The course has helped me to think about my career and personal life in a new and refreshing way. I would highly recommend it."

Avril Alcala


"I have learnt to say 'no' which is now a really powerful tool."

Margo Grogan

What Deirdre's Clients say ...

Deirdre and I have been working together for just over 10 months now. I was a little nervous at first as our working relationship started in April when everyone was on lockdown. However, doing these sessions virtually did not affect the impact at all. Deirdre has certainly taken me on a journey with her coaching and advice, I have become a more considerate and thoughtful leader. What I love most about her is she has a style that helps you find your own solution. In the past, I have had coaches who told instead of taught. Her no-nonsense approach works for us both and I am looking forward to working with her in the future to further improve my skills.

Lesley Ronaldson

Sales Director

We were delighted and blown away by the positive impact Deirdre McGinn had on our participants when she was a guest speaker as part of our Leadership Course. Deirdre was so inspiring and uplifting and gave invaluable information on leadership, taking the lead with confidence and creating a virtual presence. She not only gave expert advice but mixed it in with personal stories which made it more relatable and ultimately enjoyable. We could not recommend her more; she is simply outstanding at what she does.

Gráinne O'Neill

National Coordinator for Women in Tennis

Deirdre is one of those people, where once you meet them, you realize, in minutes, how truly valuable they are going to be to you. She is not only an incredible coach & mentor, but also has the credentials & vast experience to back it up. I have been working with Deirdre for over a year now & can confidently say the impact has been profound on a personal and professional level. I am profoundly grateful for her coaching & guidance. I look forward to continuing to work together.

Rachel Cleary


Deirdre is one of the most effective coaches and agents of change I have encountered in my career to date. Her commitment to enable meaningful discussions and uncover deep insights is an invaluable support when it comes to truly finding the right path forward; and she brings the perfect balance of genuine care and empathy coupled with honest, direct and challenging questions. A fantastic listener, Deidre brings a focus to every session that never fails to capture what is said and unsaid.Highly recommend Deirdre for anyone who is looking to truly step change their career and reach their full potential and goals


EMEA Marketing Manager

Deirdre joined us a guest on our Podcast to talk about the importance of virtual presence and how to build relationships in a digital world. We saw a lot of value in the framework she has developed, especially now that business cannot be done face to face and most of our team members are working remotely. We have hired her to run a companywide workshop, where she shared best practices of virtual presence, the important of deepening virtual relationships and how to build trust in a digital world. Our 150+ team members from our UK & US offices managed to get great actionable insights from the webinar and have been successfully applying the framework in their day-to-day.

Catarina Hoch

VP Global Marketing

Deirdre led our Team Building Event in December. Her energy, expertise and knowledge ensured the day was not only full of great learning but brought the team together in a fun and highly motivated way. After a difficult year for everyone, this is exactly what was needed to ensure a strong end to 2020 and a great start to 2021. We are looking forward to continuing this work with Deirdre in 2021.
