Lift as you climb: Women and the art of ambition
Viv Groskop presents a dynamic guide to owning your ambition – without having to become someone you don’t want to be.

In this masterclass, she’ll show you how to balance ambition and compassion, and reveal how women can strive for personal success while trying to help – or lift – others along the way.

There are many difficult moments at work, times when we feel awkward, when our daily micro interactions make us uncomfortable, perhaps when we have to say no or assert ourselves in a way that makes us feel less like ourselves, less ‘sisterly’. Viv will examine what sisterhood looks like these days, asks what you can do to make things better for other women and considers how to do that without disadvantaging yourself.

It’s the ultimate confidence booster for women who want to plan a career in a fast moving world, but without leaving anyone else behind. And it will address one of the biggest issues women face in the workplace – how to be ambitious without losing your sense of self.

Full of tips, takeaways and invaluable insights, this is everything you need to know about making life better for yourself – without making it worse for others.

Viv Groskop is a writer, stand-up comedian and TV and radio presenter. She has hosted book tours for Graham Norton and Jo Brand, is the veteran of four Edinburgh Fringe shows and fronts the cult podcasts 'Dear Viv' and 'We Are Women'. She has presented BBC Radio 4’s 'Front Row' and 'Saturday Review' and appears regularly on BBC1’s 'This Week'. As an executive coach, she works with women across business, media and advertising, helping them to hone their authority, presence and leadership.
