About Jane C Woods
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, www.changingpeople.co.uk, 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

An update on that invitation to appear on BBC's Woman's Hour. With some terrible pictures...
Over the years I've interviewed many successful writers and here is a selection of some of their 'best bits' of advice to aspiring writers.
Which face do you choose to present to the world?
And I even managed to get Elvis in too!
I have an interview coming up with photographer and teller of women's tales, Laura Dodsworth, to coincide with the launch of her book. Meanwhile, read on for a sneak preview. I've spent many a happy half hour trying to match my chest to one here!
I hate it when people think they are giving me a compliment by saying I do something ‘just like a man’. I’m a woman, for heaven’s sake, I don’t need my actions validated by being told I do it like a man, i.e. better than if I was doing it like a woman….
We've all heard it a million times, women get too emotional at work. I'd like to challenge that. Naturally.
This one nearly slipped by me so I’m very grateful to one of my RenewYou trainers for pointing it out to me. The Peter Principle has been around for some time and refers to men getting promoted to their level of incompetence. Professor Tom Schuller is working on a new principle which he calls the Paula Principle and which is getting a lot of attention.
