RisingWISE is the ideal first stepping stone on the road to self-realization. More than anything, the programme left me with tools to navigate my priorities and a confidence to step off a path that no longer aligns with them.

I became more perceptive to opportunities and more confident in seizing them, which then led me to attend other courses, such as the Saïd Business School Ideas2Impact programme. Since I attended RisingWISE I met an unprecedented variety of incredible people in different fields and gained a significant insight into the possible roads towards starting my own business.

The continuous support RisingWISE provides is a constant reminder to stay on course and continue working towards a meaningful future.
