Have you heard about RenewYou?

Some years ago I wrote a course especially for women and called it RenewYou. I wrote it for women who might be put off by the idea of personal development in the normal way of things, or who had not had time to focus on themselves for a long time. I wrote it to work for any woman, at any stage of her life or career. The comments and responses from the first women to undertake RenewYou helped me shape and refine it until I had something which I, and more importantly, they were very happy with.

The aim of the course was simple: every survey about women and achievement always says women lack confidence. I wanted to address that, to make women feel good about themselves, to feel much more confident, and give them motivation and tools to make change if changes were needed. I wanted them to walk out with a smile on their faces and feeling several inches taller than when they walked in. I wanted to do it in a way that wasn’t prescriptive, no telling them what they ‘ought’ to be, simply allowing them to see the possibilities and their uniqueness.

The evaluations tell me I succeeded in that. Over the years I have wept tears of joy (and sometimes sorrow) with the hundreds of women who have taken part in RenewYou. It’s been one of the most rewarding things I have done to date.

Many trainers and coaches used to ask me if they could also deliver my course but I always said no; it wasn’t part of my business plan. That changed a couple of years ago. In March 2013 I trained my first 7 women to deliver RenewYou as part of their own business portfolio. We had a great day together and I will never forget that first wonderful group of women and the support and encouragement they gave me.

Over the last two years I have refined and improved the support on offer to licensees to include a private part of the website, national promotion of RenewYou in magazines and the press, and the opportunity for trainers to put their details and advertise their open courses on my website. We now have over 65 women across the globe delivering RenewYou. Some are very active, some are not. It’s up to them how much they do, what they charge, etcetera.

I can licence women via Skype or you can come on one of my licensing days; there is no extra charge for doing it in person. We’re in Manchester on 1st June and York in November. You can see all the details, including prices, by clicking this link which will take you to the trainers’ information page. If you think it may benefit your organisation take a look at RenewYou Means Business, too.

Women helping women. It’s fabulous.

Women's Personal Development Specialist - Changing People, -

Hi, I’m Jane C Woods and I have an absolute passion for helping women achieve success in their lives. Be it the glass ceiling, the crystal maze, or very personal issues, I’m all about helping women achieve to their full potential and live the way they want to without being carbon copies of men. But I’m not about putting men down in order for women to get ahead, there’s plenty of room; I just want the guys to shifty up a bit… If my face looks familiar it's because I love Psychologies magazine (I've been buying it since the very first issue, such a good resource) and it's the only place I choose to advertise my courses. I write on women’s issues on my blog,, and am regularly featured in magazines, and on radio, but I’m probably best known for RenewYou. RenewYou is my one day personal development course for women. We have an international network of experienced, specialist women licensed to deliver it and empower women across the globe. Our goal is to reach one million women. It’s a big goal but… In 2013 we started with a single RenewYou specialist, me. Now you can find a RenewYou Courses across the UK, in the USA, Canada, Greece, Bangkok, Pakistan, South Africa, Belgium, with new countries being added all the time. My dream was to create a thriving and caring business on ethical, and dare I say, feminine terms, with a real community spirit of help and encouragement. And it’s actually happening with the support, expertise, and enthusiasm of my wonderful trainers. I think, (apart from my two lovely kids, a daughter and a son) that it’s probably my proudest achievement to date. Wonderful Changing People Women: One of the joys and privileges of my work is that I’ve connected with some really inspirational and wonderful women – from politics to entertainment to academia. They include: TV presenter, house fixer and matchmaker Sarah Beeny Amazing entrepreneur Sam Roddick of Coco de Mer Outspoken and entertaining academic Mary Beard Politicians like Siobhan Benita and Natalie Bennett Ex BBC broadcaster Miriam O’Reilly who bravely took on the might of the BBC- and triumphed A very rare interview with Sarah Montague, of the influential BBC Radio 4 Today programme I hope you like the posts and I hope they are helpful.
