Here’s my ‘official’ bio
Samantha Nolan-Smith is the founder and CEO of The School of Visibility. The School supports women to be more visible so they can:
- live bigger, bolder lives
- expand their reach
- be seen for the wisdom they’ve worked hard to acquire and embody, and
- positively impact the world.
Combining her background as a lawyer and social justice advocate, with her training in personal and spiritual development, Samantha has developed a unique approach to overcoming visibility barriers. Her methodology supports women to overcome personal, societal, and ancestral blocks so they’re able to embody the change they were born to create.
After studying at the School of Visibility, women find they’re able to:
- recognise their worth and feel confident in sharing their unique perspective with the world,
- put themselves forward for opportunities they’d previously shied away from,
- establish themselves as authorities in their industry,
- embody a new form of leadership which incorporates feminine principles and practices (and integrates them with healthy masculine principles and practices),
- confidently speak up about topics that others might consider controversial, and
- build powerful communities focused on creating positive change in the world.
