About this trip

Date : Saturday 14th August

Time : 15:00 - 18:00 UKT / 10am - 1pm EST

Audience : LGBTQ+

Cost : FREE  (Donations accepted)


A self-empowerment workshop for those wanting to master the art of influence and create more of an impact in the world. We’ll be introducing new processes and tools for putting your purpose into practice as a Queer Leader or Change-Maker, whilst remembering to safe-guard your own health and well-being.


“The key to successful leadership is influence, not authority.” Kenneth Blanchard

Why join this workshop?

-  Gain some clarity on what it is that you really want to achieve
-  Discover new self-care tools for managing your own wellbeing
-  Challenge self-imposed personal narratives
-  Acquire fresh perspectives 

-  Feel empowered having discovered new information about yourself
-  Refresh and recalibrate your core values
-  Increase the positive impact you could have in the world

About this workshop.

During this three-hour workshop, we'll start to explore how you can act on your commitments to drive positive change while keeping sight of your own core needs and values. Those who master the art of influence are often skilled at tapping into the emotions that drive people’s actions. This explains why influence is synonymous with leadership. But how do we ensure that we are actually having an impact? And at the same time safe-guarding our own well-being and remaining true to ourselves.


We want you to feel empowered with the new information you’re going to uncover and leave with actionable steps towards taking more control of your own life. 


You will take part in various creative and interactive workshops to help you bring your intentions to life, and we’ll be encouraging you to use your mind and body to discover brand new perspectives about yourself. 

The tools we’ll use:

We'll be incorporating tried and tested practices such as journaling, group sharing, self-enquiry, breath-work and meditation. These will be interspersed with key teachings and coaching techniques.

About our approach.

We offer a safe space to get curious, open up and discuss with others, aspects of your life you’re finding challenging or simply want to improve. Naturally it is a completely confidential space, where individuals can openly share their feelings and thoughts with the option of anonymity. 


Your safety comes first.


Your safety is our main priority. For this reason, we may need to ask participants for some personal medical information, before we can confirm your place on the workshop. These are standard questions, there to protect your safety and everyone else involved. This information will only be shared on a need to know basis and will be GDPR compliant. We will also be undertaking other necessary safety measures, during and post-retreat.


We would highly recommend individuals with concerns relating to pre-existing mental health conditions, substance misuse and related disorders to seek immediate professional help.

I registered, got the confirmation email but never got the link to join the summit.

Hi Hector, we appreciate how annoying it must have been to not receive the link, and we apologise for that. As we explained, sometimes emails go into spam folders or are blocked by large corporation security systems, but it was definitely sent. Unfortunately you didn't let us know until the following week when it was too late for us to resend. Hopefully you can catch up on some of the recordings and join a future event soon.

Lots of powerful discussion and I walked away feeling so calm and empowered. Thank you WCS for an amazing day!

An insightful day, with great awareness of how tough this space can be to work in - wellbeing was a core component of the day.
By Jamie W for Queer Leadership Summit 2022 🏳️‍🌈 on 18 May, 2022
Great event! I learned a lot! Was great to hear so many varying perspectives. It was also reassuring to hear from different people how they are all winging it to some extent, but feel motivated by their experiences to stand up and make change. Having now attended a number of We Create Space events, I can't recommend them enough!

I highly recommend We Create Space! I participated in a 2-day 'Who Am I?' Virtual Queer Leadership Retreat with other Queer leaders and it was truly transformational–I left forever changed. The intentional and purposeful programming by Michael and Maylis was so meaningful and well structured. The biggest draw for me was the community care and networking opportunity of being able to see and hear from other queer folx. This is what has been the hardest for me to find in my own personal journey.

The workshop I attended literally created space in both my body and mind for exploration, curiosity and openness. It was wonderfully facilitated, inspired immensely by the speakers' talks and other queer participants sharings. It shifted the way I saw different aspects of my life and opened the room for more discovery. Definitely recommended to all queer people who want to learn more and increase their inner potential!

I took part in a weekend Who Am I? retreat and highly recommend it. The group size is intimate so never feels too daunting and you're able to build connections well. Maylis was a fantastic organiser - felt there was great communication from pre-booking right through to afterwards. Michael is a fantastic host, he leads the retreat with from a place of kindness, vulnerability and openness I find really commendable. Whether you're new to self exploration or a seasoned pro - I think this is worth doing.
