"VisibleStart has been the best decision I have made for myself!"

 

"To be a part of the process was not only upskilling with in-depth content, but a huge confidence boost for myself and the group of women in my cohort"

 

"I felt work-ready again in my fifties and it feels amazing! Upon finishing VisibleStart I was equipped with skills, advertising and media knowledge and most importantly my zest for life was back"

 

"I thoroughly enjoyed the process from beginning to end, resulting in my perfect role in Programmatic. My manager and team have been so welcoming and super supportive. I feel incredibly lucky and I urge all women to sign up to the next cohort!"
