Cultivating a Growth Mindset

9:30 – 12:00 on Friday 13th January 2023

Royal Quays Business Centre, Coble Dene, North Shields, NE29 6DE


“People with a growth mindset believe that their basic qualities and abilities are things they can cultivate through effort and persistence. This mindset leads not only to a passion for learning and personal development, but also confidence and a resilient sense of self in the face of adversity and criticism.” – Carol Dweck, author of Mindset


NEL Fund Managers has partnered with Teresa Peters of Accelerator Coaching to bring you this event focussed on breaking down barriers to business growth by rewiring the brain, increasing personal confidence, and developing your growth mindset.

The interactive session will empower female founders to think differently and seize business opportunities to enable extraordinary growth.


• Introduction to Growth Mindset and Fixed Mindset using audience interaction

• A story you’ll never forget!

• Growth Mindset Models – application through group discussions and teamwork

• Neuroplasticity and rewiring our brains

• Q&A


All attendees will be given a Mindset questionnaire and workbook to complete and keep.

The workshop style will be fun, engaging, interactive and it will offer a creative networking opportunity.

You will walk away with a new way of thinking, increased confidence, raised self-awareness and the motivation to step outside your comfort zone and try something new.
