Over 140 large, global companies have partnered with Signature Leaders to invest in their top female leaders
Ideal candidates are already considered top leaders, but they have more “head room” for growth. They are new to or on the cusp of senior executive ranks. Titles usually include GMs with large P&Ls, SVPs, VPs, Heads of functional areas, and select Senior Directors. These leaders are focused less on building new skills and more on gaining perspective, building a powerful network, plus renewing their energy and passion for leadership.
We create a trusting environment where participants candidly share their knowledge and experiences with peers from across companies, geographies, industries, and roles. Successful senior women executives serve as faculty and mentors – practitioners learning from practitioners. The 2.5 days of immersive table work, one-on-ones, panel sessions, and group dinners provide opportunities to expand their networks.
Our curriculum focuses on encouraging executives to augment the leadership Signature that makes them authentic. Action-based learning from real-life business situations allow participants to test ideas and receive valuable peer and mentor input. Whether it is establishing a personal brand, creating a powerful network, or increasing energy, participants leave Signature Premier with immediate actions and changes to put in place.
Unlike typical seminars and conferences, Signature Premier lives beyond the 2.5-day immersion session. Signature alumni move forward with an invaluable connection of peers and C-suite advisors who support their careers and life journeys. Alumni enjoy follow-up refresher calls and face-to-face Signature Circle meetings in over 15 cities worldwide.
Signature facilitated introspection in an encouraging and inspirational environment. Learning the value of taking care of myself, understanding my own brand and bringing my authentic self to my interactions with others is helping me to be a better leader, colleague, mentor and friend.

I went through Signature Premier in 2014, and I am still using what I learned. I am always preparing in advance with the questions I want to ask and determining how I show up for every important meeting that I have.

To be with a group of dynamic women all facing the same challenges was not a big surprise... the surprise came with the panels & speakers giving advice and direction that has truly made a difference! Thank You to my Signature family– I reread my notes often and always find a new nugget to guide me.
Chief Merchandising Officer, SVP Merchandising, Giant Food
I was promoted shortly after attending the first cohort of Signature Premier. The work I did to prepare for our Signature session really helped me articulate why I wanted the job, what I could bring, and aided me in my start up with my new team.
