Samantha Nolan-Smith is the founder and CEO of The School of Visibility. Through its classes, short courses, and programs the School supports women to speak up, and really be seen and heard in the world.
Combining her background as a lawyer and public policy advisor with her training in personal and spiritual development, Samantha has developed a unique approach to overcoming visibility barriers which she shares in the School’s popular classes and online programs.
After studying at the School of Visibility, women find they’re able to:
- recognise their own worth and feel confident in sharing their unique perspective with the world
- put themselves forward for opportunities they’d previously shied away from,
- confidently speak up about topics that others might consider controversial, and
- step forward as a new type of leader in their industry.
